Israeli view: Hezbollah puts Lebanon at risk

  • With help from Tehran, Hezbollah has made the Israel-Lebanon border volatile for more than three decades
  • The terror organization continues to threaten Israel and has waded into the Syrian civil war
  • After success in 2018 elections, Hezbollah now bears responsibility for running the country and for the blowback from any confrontation with Israel

For many years, the border between Lebanon and Israel was peaceful. There were no territorial claims on either side, and it was often predicted that Lebanon would be the first Arab country to make peace with the Jewish state. However, following the creation of Hezbollah by Iran in 1982, that border has become one of Israel’s most volatile frontiers, a situation not likely to change for the foreseeable future. Financed and armed by Tehran, the Shia Hezbollah movement is branded a terror organization by major Western countries such as the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, as well as Japan, the Arab League and the Gulf Cooperation Council.
