Alarms sounded throughout the city of Nahariya and several Israeli towns near the border with Lebanon on Sunday night, December 20. The IDF spokesperson reported that there were three rockets fired. Following the killing of Samir Kuntar early Sunday morning, Israel has been on alert for a potential response from Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based terror organization.
“The IDF and Israel definitely need to be prepared for the possibility of retaliation by Hezbollah,” MK Eyal Ben-Reuven of the Zionist Camp party in an interview with TPS earlier on Sunday. Ben-Reuven previously served the IDF for 35 years and was the Deputy Chief of the Northern Command during the Second Lebanon War. “I suggest taking the Hezbollah threat seriously. Their announcement directly blaming the Israeli government shows that they are not going to hide this [killing], like they have done in the past.”
