Report: Hezbollah declares general mobilization as Israel seizes Rafah crossing

Hezbollah has declared general mobilization to be prepared should Israel decide to expand the war on Lebanon, after the Israeli army seized control of the Rafah border crossing in Gaza, Shiite Duo sources have said.

“International sides have not ruled out that Israel might expand the war as a preventative step, in order to prevent Hezbollah from repeating what Hamas did with its invasion of the Israeli settlements in the Gaza envelope area,” the sources told the Asharq al-Awsat newspaper.

The sources added that Hezbollah has started using “advanced weapons” in the face of Israel’s “breach of the rules of engagement,” hoping that it will be able to impose a “new equation” that would prevent Israel from expanding the war.
