There’s no comment from the Netanyahu government that Israel carried out a drone attack in Beirut that killed a senior Hamas official.
Saleh Arouri and five others were killed in the blast.
Israel Defense Forces say it is on high alert and ready for ”any scenario.”
Prime Minister Netanyahu had threatened to kill Arouri even before the war broke out October 7.
Should Israel be responsible for the attack it could lead to an escalation in the conflict.
Hezbollah’s leader has vowed to retaliate against any Israeli targeting of Palestinian officials in Lebanon.
