Israel on Wednesday extended its ongoing military campaign against Hamas from Gaza to Lebanon.

This was in retaliation for four tickets fired into Northern Israe from Lebanon.

The Israel Defence Forces said in a tweet: “Four rockets were just fired from Lebanon at northern Israel, 1 of which was intercepted by the Iron Dome.

In response, IDF artillery forces are striking a number of targets in Lebanon.

We are prepared for any scenario on any front.”

Meanwhile, United States President Joe Biden Jr on Wednesday urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to de-escalate the crisis immediately.

This is just as a ceasefire is expected to come into effect after over 200 people were killed in airstrikes in Israel and Gaza.
