Israel-Hezbollah war averted by urgent diplomacy

5 min read

Israel-Hezbollah war averted by urgent diplomacy, Lloyd Austin, the United States Defense Secretary, has said that a diplomatic solution is needed if Israel and Hezbollah are to avoid a costly war that could have disastrous consequences on both sides.

The Israeli foreign minister, Yoav Gallant, met with Austin on Tuesday in order to discuss the situation in Lebanon and the regional situation, in which Austin blamed the soaring tensions on “provocations” by Hezbollah, although Austin stressed that a full-scale war would be destructive for all parties involved and potentially spark a regional war.

As far as preventing more escalation is concerned, diplomacy is by far the best course of action. In light of this, Austin explained to reporters that “we are urgently seeking a diplomatic agreement to restore lasting calm to Israel’s northern border and allow civilians to return to their homes safely on both sides of the border between Israel and Lebanon.”

During the Gaza war, there have been daily exchanges of fire between Hezbollah and Israeli forces, but the escalating attacks over the last several weeks have led to an atmosphere of growing tension between the two sides.

According to Gallant, Israel could engage in a large-scale war in southern Lebanon against Hezbollah if it desires to take the initiative. During a press conference on Tuesday, Gallant said that he was “working closely” with Austin to find a diplomatic solution, but they had also discussed military “readiness for every possible scenario” during the meeting.

In spite of Israel’s accusations that Hezbollah was responsible for the displacement of thousands of Israelis from their homes near the border with Lebanon, the Iran-backed group has made it clear throughout the conflict that it has no interest in a wider war.

Lebanese civilians:

More than 80 civilians and noncombatants have been killed as a result of violence near the border with Israel, resulting in thousands of Lebanese civilians being displaced and displaced from their homes. Since October, 11 civilians have been killed in Israel as a result of terrorist attacks.

A conflict between the group and Israel could have devastating effects for both sides in the event of a larger conflict between the group and Israel, which accounts for one of the most modern and well-armed paramilitary groups in the world.

It is true that the administration of US President Joe Biden has on many occasions urged Israel not to engage in war with Hezbollah in Lebanon, but it has also stated in recent days that, if Israel were to engage in such a war, they would receive the full support of the US.

Such a war would be a disaster for Lebanon and it would be devastating for innocent Israelis and Lebanese civilians alike.
