As per reports, two Israel Defense Forces soldiers were lightly wounded and evacuated after an anti-tank missile attack on north Israel on Wednesday (03 January).

• Hezbollah claimed responsibility for 10 attacks on northern Israel since Tuesday (02 January), including four since Hamas deputy chief Saleh al-Arouri was killed in alleged Israeli strike in Beirut. Israel is yet to officially claim responsibility for the drone attack.
• Hezbollah launched missiles and drones at army positions along the border on Tuesday (02 January). In some of the attacks, however, projectiles hit Israeli communities in northern Israel. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
• French President Emmanuel Macron called on Israel to avoid escalation, ‘particularly in Lebanon,’ following the strike in Beirut.
• Hamas froze talks for a second deal to release additional hostages held in Gaza after the death of deputy Hamas leader Saleh al-Arouri. Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh stated that the assassination was a ‘terrorist act,’ a violation of Lebanon’s sovereignty, and an expansion of Israel’s hostility against Palestinians.
• Iran, on Tuesday (02 January), also condemned Israel for the attack in Beirut’s southern neighbourhood which left two commanders of Hamas’ military wing (Qassam Brigades), its deputy Chief and Arouri and at least six others dead.
• Iran termed the strike as a ‘violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Lebanon,’ calling on the United Nations Security Council to take an ‘immediate and effective response’ to Israel.
• The United Nations Security Council may meet as early as Wednesday (03 January) on the situation in the Red Sea where the Houthis have been attacking ships that it linked to Israel amid the ongoing war as well as to find solutions to avoid a conflict between Lebanon and Israel.
• In the early hours on Wednesday (03 January), the UK Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) stated it received reports of explosions in the Red Sea, following statements from a maritime security firm that a Malta-flagged container ship had seen three explosions southwest of Yemen’s al-Makha (Mocha).
