Netanyahu Warns of 'Intense Action' Amid Escalating Israel-Hezbollah Clashes

Israeli officials are considering an offensive on the country’s border with Lebanon if attacks from Hezbollah do not stop. Israeli forces have exchanged cross-border attacks with Hezbollah for months, but the fighting has escalated recently.
