In a visit to the IDF’s 91st Division located in Northern Israel last week, Defense Minister Benny Gantz warned recently that “If Nasrallah and Hezbollah’s threats become actions, the outcome will be painful for Hezbollah and its leaders. And unfortunately for the Lebanese people, who are being used as human shields by Nasrallah – who is hiding weapons and missiles beneath their homes.”
Israel’s northern border has been tense since the incident amid continued threats by Hezbollah to carry out a revenge attack against Israel in response to the death.
Israeli officials have pointed the finger at Hezbollah, stressing that they’ve been warning for years that Hezbollah has been storing weapons at the port, but Hezbollah has denied any connection to the incident, with Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah stating that “We know more about the port of Haifa than the port of Beirut.”
