Hezbollah has started attacking Israel after Hamas’ October 7 attack. This is part of Iran’s plan to unite various groups against Israel, including Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and other groups in Syria and Iraq.
Hezbollah, the strongest Iranian proxy, has a significant arsenal, including rockets, missiles, drones, anti-tank missiles, and other munitions. The group has been carrying out daily attacks on Israel using various weapons, including the heavy missile called “Burkan.”
Iran’s media highlighted Hezbollah’s achievements during the conflict, praising the group for its role in forcing Israeli communities to evacuate and accept a ceasefire. It also emphasized the unity of resistance areas and the increased political popularity of Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Iran aims to showcase cooperation between Sunni and Shi’ite organizations, healing the wounds of previous conflicts in Syria and Iraq. Lastly, Iran commended Hezbollah for creating an “equation” that will make it difficult for fighting to resume in Gaza and hinted at further escalation if fighting does restart.
