The Israel Defense Forces is bracing for an imminent attack from Hezbollah, Channel 12 reported on Tuesday night.

According to the report, based on the assessment of anonymous security sources, the Iran-backed, Lebanon-based terrorist organization does not consider the foiled cross-border attack on Monday sufficient retaliation for the killing of one of its fighters in an airstrike south of Damascus on July 21. Hezbollah attributes the strike, in which Ali Kamel Mohsen was killed, to Israel.

The IDF, thus, has sent in reinforcements to its border with Lebanon ahead of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, which begins on Thursday night.

During a visit to IDF Northern Command headquarters on Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “We will continue to take action to thwart Iran’s military entrenchment in our region. We will do whatever is necessary to defend ourselves and I suggest that Hezbollah consider this simple fact. Israel is ready for any scenario.”
