Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issues a warning to Hezbollah amid escalating tensions in the north, saying the Lebanese terror group is “playing with fire.”

“There are those who think they can expand their attacks against our troops and against civilians. This is playing with fire,” Netanyahu says, without explicitly mentioning Hezbollah. “Fire will be met with much stronger fire. They must not try us, because we have displayed only a little part of our power. We will harm those who harm us.”

The premier makes the remark during a visit to the IDF’s Desert Reconnaissance Battalion, also known as Unit 585 or the Bedouin Battalion, hailing the unit’s actions on and since Hamas’s October 7 onslaught, which also targeted members of the Bedouin community.

“I salute you. Our partnership is the future for all of us against those savages,” he tells the soldiers. “We are going to win. There are no pauses. This isn’t an operation, this isn’t another round of fighting. We are going here for total victory.

“We will restore security in the north and in the south… Hamas will be eliminated.”
