War preparations by Israel - Tel Aviv activated Radar as a prelude to a military attack on Lebanon

In a strategic move, Israel deployed a state-of-the-art radar-equipped balloon in its northern region to enhance its missile and air vehicle detection capabilities. The activation of the "Sky Dew" missile and aircraft detection system comes after a 1.5-year hiatus, Haaretz reported.

Residents living in northern Israel and southern Lebanon confirmed the presence of the missile detection balloon, signaling a new focus on security measures. However, the deployment faces operational challenges and the system is not yet fully operational, according to reports.

Israel's state-run KAN television channel reported that the system became operational today after the arrival of components ordered from the United States. The decision to reactivate this defence system coincides with heightened tensions, in particular with the recent assassination of Hamas Deputy Head of the Political Bureau Saleh al-Arouri and six others in Beirut on 2 January.


In response to the assassination, Hezbollah claimed to have fired more than 60 rockets at an Israeli military base near the border, underlining the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hezbollah since October 8. The clashes have resulted in significant casualties, with 152 Hezbollah members, 28 Lebanese civilians, 5 Israeli civilians and 9 Israeli soldiers losing their lives.
