Hezbollah releases surveillance footage of carnage in Gaza

Lebanese militant group Hezbollah published a video on June 18th of alleged footage from an aircraft over the Gaza Strip as well as Israel, including Haifa’s sea and air ports, The New Arab and agencies reported. In November, Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah claimed that the group had been sending surveillance over the port-city. The Israeli military said the “suspicious aerial targets” had been shot down by interceptor missiles after crossing into the country’s airspace. 

The same day, Israeli strikes on a family home and commercial building left at least 13 dead, the territory’s civil defence agency reported. Witnesses reported gunfire and artillery shelling near central Gaza’s Nuseirat refugee camp, as well as Israeli military vehicles and shelling in Rafah. The Israeli army later confirmed these reports, saying that these had carried out operations in central and southern Gaza as well as Rafah’s shared border with Egypt

Western powers have worked to negotiate the hostilities between Hezbollah and Israel. Though many fear that this conflict — happening alongside Israel’s war on Gaza – could lead to full-fledged war in the Middle East. United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres cautioned against “full-scale regional conflict” on April 18th. On June 5th, Israel said it was “ready” to attack Hezbollah even amidst ceasefire talks with Palestinian governing group Hamas.
