Israeli media: Hamas embarrasses confused, weak 'Israel'
The commentator of Arab affairs on the Israeli Channel 13 says Hamas was aware that what "Israel" is doing in Gaza is another attack against empty real estate.
Israeli media considered on Friday that Hamas declared its war against "Israel" by linking the Gaza Strip, the bombing from Lebanon, and the Jordan Valley operation, adding that the movement succeeded in "embarrassing Tel Aviv and grasping it while it was in a state of weakness and confusion."
Zvi Yehezkili, commentator of Arab affairs on the Israeli Channel 13, said there is one course linking Gaza, Lebanon, the Jordan Valley, and the calls chanted in Al-Aqsa Mosque in support of Al-Qassam Brigades Commander Mohammad Deif, which is that Hamas declared war against "Israel" during the "Jewish Passover holiday."
Yehezkili considered that Hamas is testing "Israel" in several arenas, adding that the movement was "aware that what Israel is doing in Gaza is another attack against empty real estate."
The commentator continued, "If we link all these events, I believe that Hamas succeeded in embarrassing Israel and grasping it while it is weak."
This comes as, on Thursday, the Israeli occupation's military said 34 rockets were launched from southern Lebanon on Occupied Al-Jalil.
The occupation said the Iron Dome intercepted 25 of the projectiles, adding that at least five rockets landed in occupied Palestinian lands.
The Times of "Israel" highlighted that the attack "may mark the largest number of rockets fired from Lebanon" since the July 2006 war.
This coincided with an Israeli occupation aggression against the Gaza Strip, which was followed by a response from the Palestinian Resistance.
In addition, Al Mayadeen correspondent on early Friday confirmed that three Israeli missiles landed south of the city of Tyre, two of them in agricultural areas and another in the Qlaileh Plain.
The Israeli occupation military spokesperson claimed that the Israeli army attacked Hamas infrastructure and sites in southern Lebanon.
'These days are very harsh': Lieberman
Earlier, Israeli media reported that a shooting operation in the Jordan Valley resulted in the death of three illegal Israeli settlers.
The head of the "Yisrael Beytenu" party, Avigdor Lieberman, said that "these days are very harsh," adding that Israeli occupation Prime Minister Netanyahu's government is "scared" and has been "deterred" by fear of escalating the situation.
"Our deterrence against [Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan] Nasrallah has been completely eroded."
In a related context, Israeli media said "Israel" is deterred by Hezbollah and does not want to enter into an all-out war, pointing out that the Arabs will view it as weak.
An Israeli researcher told the Israeli Channel 13 that there is no Israeli deterrence, noting that "Israel" has lost it in recent years.
Gantz and Yair Lapid rebuke Ben-Gvir over remarks
Israeli media reported that opposition leaders Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid rebuked Israeli occupation Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir after the latter claimed that the opposition was "encouraging our enemies to start a military conflict against us."
Gantz said that Ben-Gvir's remarks show that he’s "completely lost his marbles."
"There has never been a cabinet minister who talked so much about security and understood so little," Gantz indicated.
In the same context, Lapid said that "the TikTok affairs minister Ben Gvir chooses to publish a wretched and whiny post in which he is only running away from responsibility and looking for culprits for the failures with his name on them."
"I don’t want to think about what he would say about this failed government if he was in the opposition," he indicated.
Following the Jordan Valley operation, Israeli media considered that "what happened is exactly what the security and military establishments are afraid of; an operation following another."
