IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says Israel will “change the security situation in the north” amid repeated attacks by the Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group and allied Palestinian factions.

“The security situation will not remain in a way where residents of the north will not feel safe to return to their homes,” Hagari says.

He says Hezbollah and the Lebanese government will bear responsibility for any attacks from Lebanon.

“Lebanese citizens will pay the price of this lawlessness, and the decision of Hezbollah to be the protector of ISIS,” Hagari says, referring to Hamas as the jihadist organization.
