Matthew RJ Brodsky joins Al-Hadath to discuss what Israel's operation "Northern Shield" means for the region. The Israeli operation targeted Hezbollah's cross-border tunnels from Lebanon and may go on for a few weeks. They also discussed Iran's growing regional entrenchment, why the U.S. supports the Israeli position, and the current rules of engagement between Israel on one hand, and Iran and Hezbollah on the other. Brodsky contends that the U.S. supports the Israeli operation because it is a part of the regional plan to push back on Iran and from a military standpoint, Israel is currently serving as the tip of that spear.
