Hezbollah Alerted of Possible Israeli Invasion in Lebanon

Intelligence provided to the Lebanese political party Hezbollah on January 27th suggests that Israel wants to pursue military action in Lebanon, which borders Israel in the north.

This information came from an unidentified Arab nation and suggests Israel wants to carry out ground operations against Hezbollah, which seems to hinge on Hezbollah’s noncompliance with United Nations Resolution 1701, which helped resolve the 2006 war between Israel and Lebanon.

Should a full-on incursion of Lebanon occur, February is the likely month of beginning operations.

American and French envoys Amos Hochstein and Jean-Yves Le Drian are returning to Beirut.
