Wissam al-Tawilcommander of the elite force Radwan of the terrorist group Hezbollah, was eliminated with a targeted kill by means of a missile that crashed into the SUV he was in. This is undoubtedly a significant attack that carries with it a clear message to Iran’s proxy in Lebanon: no terrorist is safe. This operation will probably complicate the US Secretary of State’s attempt Antony Blinken to prevent the war from Israel against Hamas expands on a second front. But the continuous and increasingly intense exchange of fire on the Israeli-Lebanese border leaves, at present, little hope that US efforts will be able to restore calm to a region that has been on the brink of disaster for too long.
On Saturday, Hezbollah fired a barrage of more than 40 rockets and several missiles at an air traffic control base atop Mount Meron, about eight kilometers inside Israel, in one of its largest attacks in years. Two radar domes were hit by guided missiles and the IDF admitted that unspecified damage was caused, without providing further details. Meanwhile, enormous quantities of Chinese and North Korean-made weapons have been found in the Hamas tunnels in the Gaza Strip, and workshops for assembling missile components have been found arrived from Iran and also electronic systems, also made in Iran, which allow normal ballistic missiles to become precise and guided weapons. Precisely this type of system is what the US Secretary of State found on the table upon his arrival in Israel.
