Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett directly attacked Lebanon and its government, which is held responsible for the rocket attacks, following a rise in tension in southern Lebanon. As a reminder, the Israeli air force carried out a raid against Lebanese territory following a firing of three rockets in the direction of the Israeli colony of Kyriat Shemona which remains unclaimed for the time being, a first since the conflict of July 2006.
As a reminder, the Shiite Hezbollah movement then responded on Friday, leading an attack of a dozen rockets fired in the direction of the farms of Chébaa, an area claimed by Lebanon and currently occupied by the Hebrew state.

Naftali Bennett says he does not make a difference whether they are small Palestinian groups, probably behind the operation last Tuesday, or Hezbollah, holding the Lebanese authorities responsible.
