According to media reports on 28 July 2020, Israeli intelligence officials assess that the Lebanese militant group Hizballah is planning imminent attacks on military installations in Israel — possibly within 48 hours — which coincides with the Jewish holiday of Tisha B’av. The Israeli military has deployed additional forces to the northern border as well as increased intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) activity in southern Lebanon, suggesting that any attack may target Israeli forces near the Blue Line — the de facto border with Lebanon.
