Following in the footsteps of terrorists in Gaza, terrorists from the Hezbollah terrorist movement lit fires along the Israeli-Lebanese border on Friday which quickly spread into Israeli territory, according to Channel 12 news.
The fire, exacerbated by strong winds, threatened an IDF post and the border town of Margaliot. The current evaluation, as reported by Channel 12, is that this was an intentional action by Hezbollah which may be carried out again in the future.
Video obtained by Channel 12, shows the Hezbollah terrorists arriving to an area very close to the border fence and igniting multiple fires in the area. The fire caused a large amount of mines in the area to explode.
UN vehicles in the area, filmed observering the arson attack, made no effort to stop the terrorists or to put out the fires. Fortunately no injuries have been announced and Israel managed to put out the fires that spread into their territory.

As the fire quickly advanced on Israeli territory, roads were closed and firefighters prepared to evacuate Margaliot.
“We received a message that a fire was advancing on the town of Margaliot that began on the Lebanese side of the border,” said Roi Finnish, deputy shift commander of the Israel Fire and Rescue Service Galilee-Golan station. “Our teams that arrived at the scene conducted operations to protect the town. Additionally, police blocked roads at the scene to prevent vehicles from passing through.”
It took hours to put out the flames and no firefighting aircraft could be used due to the site’s close proximity to the border. According to Channel 12, this probably won’t be a one-time incident.
Hamas and Hezbollah are terrorist proxies of Iran
Christians United for Israel UK is calling upon the British government to end its involvement in the Iran Nuclear Deal as the Iranian regime is funding terrorist groups such as these and using funds from the Iran Deal to do so.
The petition, launched as part of CUFI’s on-going Operation Mordecai campaign, accuses Iran of failing to show any evidence of reform since the deal was made in 2015 and says the Join Plan of Action (JCPOA) provides no credible solution to stopping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
It follows the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirming that Iran has now exceeded the agreed limit on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium. The regime has also vowed to continue enrichment to “any amount we want” – moving Iran closer to a nuclear weapon. The Iranian regime has also captured a British ship and is holding its crew hostage whilst seeking further British vessels to capture.
CUFI UK Director, Des Starritt, says “The United Kingdom is ‘urgently considering next steps’ but remains one of five countries still part of the deal after the US withdrew and imposed new sanctions.”
“The UK must choose to stop supporting the aggressive terrorist funding Iranian regime and make a stand in solidarity with our closest allies – Israel and the United States.”
