Since the beginning of the war in the Gaza Strip, the Lebanese group Hezbollah has been open to aiding Palestinians, and it seems they will continue with such practices in the future. Judging by media reports, Hezbollah has attacked a military position in northern Israel using drones. In this attack, one soldier sustained serious injuries, while three others were lightly wounded. 

Hezbollah is frustrated and disappointed with Israel's treatment of Palestinians, but they are also angry at the world silently observing the events in the Gaza Strip, believing that a response is necessary. 

Hezbollah has made similar moves before, but they were not particularly successful. This is the first time in the past few months that they have succeeded in their intentions. After the Israeli army entered Rafah with the intention of attacking the city, Hezbollah began even stronger attacks. 

Lebanese political analyst Faisal Abdul-Sater has sent a clear message to the Israelis.

"This is a method of sending messages on the ground to the Israeli enemy, indicating that this is part of what they possess, and if necessary, they can attack even more forcefully," - he said.

Hezbollah leaders are angry about the events in Palestine, and the offensive in Rafah was a red alert for them to start their attacks. A Lebanese official familiar with Hezbollah revealed why they are attacking Israel.

"In the past two weeks, Hezbollah has attacked multiple times in response to the Israeli incursion into the southern Rafah city in the Gaza Strip."- he said.

The drone attack occurred several days after Hezbollah launched three anti-tank guided missiles at an Israeli military post. After some time, Hezbollah released footage confirming they had achieved their target. The night before, Hezbollah also carried out one of its largest attacks, using explosive unmanned aerial vehicles. Israelis are fearful, as they were unaware that Hezbollah possesses more powerful weaponry. 

There is fear and concern that this group will continue to launch even larger attacks in the future, which would certainly not be good for Israel. Hezbollah shows no signs of backing down, and it is evident from their leaders' intentions that they will continue with similar attacks if Israel persists with its current policy in Palestine.

The Israelis, despite everything that has happened, also faced significant problems in northern Gaza a few days ago. Specifically, two Israeli army tanks killed five of their own soldiers and wounded seven others. According to reports, the Israeli tanks were in a state of chaos and panic due to the multitude of attacks in that area. 

Orders were given to keep the hatches on the tanks closed to avoid attacks, which limited the tanks' visibility. 

Israelis still firmly stand behind their intentions, and Rafah is their primary target at the moment. Their intentions are to stop Hamas and achieve their final goal. Although some expected the Israelis to easily finish their job, Hamas is putting up resistance in some areas, but they will have a tough task ahead. The situation remains unchanged despite warnings from world leaders and important political figures. 

Israelis and their leaders still have no intention of signing a ceasefire or agreeing to anything. 

Despite the fact that many Israeli captives are in the Gaza Strip, Netanyahu does not want to achieve peace, dissatisfied with the conditions. This is causing frustration among the Israeli people, especially the families of the abducted, who consider it unacceptable for the Prime Minister to behave in such a manner. 

The situation has escalated to the point where Israelis have staged protests, urging against Netanyahu and his government. It seems that nothing can stop Netanyahu and his vision regarding the conflict with Palestine.

Joe Biden does not want US troops in the Gaza Strip

The situation has escalated to the point where the Biden administration is asking Arab states to be part of peacekeeping forces deployed in Gaza after the war ends. US leaders have held talks with some Arab states such as the UAE, Egypt, and Morocco. 

Interestingly, Biden does not want to take the same steps as his predecessors, deploying American troops to Middle Eastern countries.

The intentions of US leaders are for Arab countries to deploy their troops, while on the other hand, US leaders do not want their military on that soil. Some countries have rejected this proposal, such as Saudi Arabia, concerned for their future. 

Some believe that only the USA can solve this problem with concrete and clear plans. The most important thing is that there is openness from the USA to resolve such an issue. How they will achieve this remains to be seen.

The situation in Rafah remains tense, and it is still difficult to predict what will happen in the near future. One can only hope for a resolution to this chaos.
