“The situation along the Lebanese-Israeli front continues to escalate as Hezbollah and the Israeli military intensify cross-border operations. Despite the escalation, the Lebanese Shiite movement’s strategy appears unchanged — to force Israel to divert substantial military forces from its Gaza offensive against Hamas without provoking a full-blown war with the Jewish state. Against this backdrop, Hezbollah’s stance ironically appears to align with the Biden administration’s goal of preventing a wider conflict as Israel continues its campaign against the Palestinian movement in Gaza.” (11/17/23)
