    "I have directed that we be prepared for any scenario. We will decide on the next steps pending developments. At this time I have an important announcement: We have no casualties – not even a scratch."

    A video shows an attack with anti-tank missile on a moving vehicle, with either a close-by or a successful hit. It is claimed that this is Israeli armored vehicle "Wolf".

  • Hezbollah-affiliated TV station shows Sunday's strike on Israel - JPost, September 2, 2019
    Reports from Lebanon have claimed that there have been Israeli casualties resulting in the strike, which Israel strongly denied.
    Hezbollah passed on a message to Jerusalem shortly after its attack along the northern border, and Israel's response, that from its point of view the incident was over, a senior defense official said on Monday.
    According to the official, the message was passed along to Israel via officials from three separate countries, and came from Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah and Lebanese Prime Minister Said Hariri. According to the official, Israel “achieved its goals.”
