Near Israel’s border, Hezbollah carried out its biggest military drill in ten years, demonstrating its fighting prowess and displaying its resolve amid the region’s rising tensions.
Hezbollah, a Lebanese militia, conducted a large-scale military exercise near the border with Israel, showcasing their combat skills and firepower. The event, which marked the upcoming anniversary of Israel’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon, was the largest public display of force by Hezbollah in years. The exercise came during a period of heightened tensions between Israel, Hezbollah, and allied groups. In the recent escalation, rockets were fired into Israel from southern Lebanon, leading to limited Israeli airstrikes in response. While Hezbollah has been cautious about launching attacks from Lebanon due to its political involvement, these simulated exercises serve as a reminder of their military capabilities and aim to rally support among their Shia community.
