The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have approved plans to attack Lebanon.

On Tuesday, Major General Ori Gordin, head of the Northern Command, and Major General Oded Basiuk, head of the Operational Directorate of the General Staff, greenlit the plans for a coordinated attack on the neighboring nation.

This information comes from the Times of Israel.

The higher command has also decided to "accelerate the readiness of military forces on the ground."

This decision follows repeated attacks by Hezbollah and allied Palestinian terrorist groups on northern Israel, raising fears of an escalation in hostilities.

The IDF has warned that if diplomatic efforts fail, it will launch a military operation to push Hezbollah forces north.

"We are very close to the moment when we will decide to change the rules of the game regarding Hezbollah and Lebanon," Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz warned on Tuesday.

Fighter jets have already struck several Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon, including infrastructure in Tayba, Odaise, and Jebban, as well as a building in Aita al-Shab.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stated that Israel is prepared for decisive action in the north in response to Hezbollah attacks.
