The conflict between Israel and Hezbollah is centered on the border area with Lebanon, unlike the rocket attack from the Gaza Strip. Despite Tehran’s involvement, Hezbollah’s ability to launch dozens of rockets is no surprise. Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, is aware of the impact of the Second Lebanon War on the memory and consciousness of the Lebanese people.
The ongoing fighting in southern Lebanon is causing severe economic damage, affecting a region focused on agriculture and leading to the evacuation of tens of thousands of people. Lebanon’s economy as a whole is feeling the impact of these evacuations, as southern Lebanon is a significant center of agricultural activity. The destruction in this region exacerbates an already devastating economy that has been hit hard by hyperinflation and citizens turning to cryptocurrency due to the steady erosion of the Lebanese pound.
Lebanon’s thriving tourism industry has also been affected by this conflict, which accounts for about 20% of its GDP. The potential for destruction in a major tourist destination like Beirut amid continued economic chaos is a major concern for this industry and for Lebanon as a whole.
Hezbollah, a terrorist organization with a state identity, has political influence in the Lebanese government. The ongoing conflict with Hezbollah is a concern for many countries and international organizations that have invested heavily in development projects in Lebanon or have trade relations with it. Efforts for a peaceful solution are ongoing, but both sides continue to engage in military actions that threaten civilians and exacerbate economic instability.
The possibility of reaching a peaceful resolution exists if ceasefire efforts are successful, but until then, both sides continue to face significant challenges due to ongoing military actions and economic instability caused by hyperinflation and other factors such as loss of foreign investment due to violence and uncertainty about future prospects for peace negotiations.
In conclusion, while efforts are being made to reach a peaceful solution to this conflict
