Indirect talks on resolving the conflict along the Israel-Lebanon border will commence during Ramadan next week, announces Lebanon's Prime Minister Najib Mikati.

Mikati reveals that Lebanese officials are studying the proposal of US envoy Amos Hochstein, who visited Beirut yesterday, March 4, to seek a ceasefire between Israel and Hezbollah.

It is worth noting that at the moment, it is known that seven Israeli civilians have been killed as a result of clashes on the Israel-Lebanon border, as well as 10 soldiers and reservists of the IDF.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah claims over 200 deaths among its ranks.


In December of last year, The Times reported that Israel may launch a ground operation against Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.

In the country, there are fears that Hezbollah militants may also invade Israel, as Hamas did in October of last year.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant has stated that Hezbollah's aggression against Israel may prompt the country to launch military action in Lebanon. Attacks by militants are escalating.

Today, March 5, in the evening, approximately 30 rockets were fired into Israel from Lebanese territory.
