Tensions between the Israeli military and Lebanese armed group Hezbollah are at an all-time high.

They’ve been engaged in low-level hostilities for more than eight months.

The recent assassination of one of Hezbollah’s most senior commanders, however, saw an unprecedented response.

US President Joe Biden sent a special envoy to the region, hoping to defuse tensions and prevent a wider conflict. But has it worked?

And with no sign the Israeli military is close to ending its war on Gaza in the south, is Israel on the brink of opening up a second front in the north?
