The IDF cannot let Lebanon become like Gaza

As Lebanon falls deeper and deeper into an economic black hole, the border with Israel has in recent weeks seen several worrisome incidents.

From weapons smuggling to infiltration and rocket attacks, the fragile boundary is under fire.

Locked in a decades-old stalemate between the country’s rival factions, Lebanon’s economy has been pulverized.

More than half of the population is now living below the poverty line, with barely enough money to buy basic necessities, including food and medicine.

Riots against the government have become an almost daily occurrence, and violence has become routine at gas stations, banks, pharmacies and grocery stores.
