Israeli drone strikes civilian car in Lebanon's Bent Jbeil
Al Mayadeen's correspondent in southern Lebanon reports that Israeli occupation aircraft are conducting a range of aggressions against Lebanese towns and villages.
An Israeli drone targeted a civilian car on the outskirts of the city of Bent Jbeil, located near the Palestinian borders in southern Lebanon, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported on Monday.
The Israeli attacks targeted a number of the Lebanese southern towns and villages since the early hours of the day.
Our correspondent said that Israeli aircraft struck the outskirts of the towns of Tair Harfa, al-Jibbain, the town of al-Khiam, and Owaidah Hill.
The continued aggressions come as Hezbollah's operations against the Israeli occupation in support of Gaza surpassed the 1,000 mark as of this past weekend.
Hezbollah holds the decision power
Commenting on the Lebanese Resistance's ongoing operations, Israeli media reported on Sunday that Hezbollah's military policy along the Lebanese-Palestinian border is "holding settlers in the occupied North as hostages".
Moran Aluf, an Israeli researcher, told the Israeli KAN channel that "Israel" has captives in the South and "hostages in the North", where settlers cannot return to their houses or live normally as a result of Hezbollah's retaliation.
"We ['Israel'] cannot allow an organization like Hezbollah to take settlers as its hostages," she added, noting that "Hezbollah created an equation, dictating that as long as fighting in Gaza is ongoing, then I [Hezbollah] will continue firing."
Aluf's statement came one day after the "Metulla" mayor revealed that 80,000 settlers have been forced out of the North as a result of Hezbollah's defensive operations, in support of Gaza and the Lebanese South.
David Azoulay told Israeli Channel 13 that "all we [settlers] are asking for is to live in our houses, but we are not a free people in Israel", adding that "Hezbollah dictates the intensity at all times in the North."
