Report: Hochstein warned Lebanon of US-backed limited Israeli operation


U.S. special envoy Amos Hochstein has warned Lebanese officials that if Hezbollah doesn’t cease its near-daily attacks on northern Israel, it could find itself the target of “a limited Israeli operation,” Israel’s Kan public broadcaster reported on Thursday.

According to the report, Hochstein told the officials that a diplomatic solution was needed to force Hezbollah back from the Israel-Lebanon border, or else Israel could launch “a limited attack with the backing of the United States.”

Hochstein is in the region in an attempt to prevent the tensions between Israel and Hezbollah from spiraling further.
