TEL AVIV – After Israeli Minister of Security, Yuval Golan, announced his intention to enhance the security of settlements near the border with Lebanon amid ongoing clashes with the Islamic Resistance, Israeli settlers criticized Golan's declaration, according to Israeli newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth. اضافة اعلان

As reported by Al-Ghad Newspaper, a settler who was evacuated from the settlement of "Kiryat Shmona," named Moshe Kakon, was quoted by Yedioth Ahronoth's correspondent in the north, Yair Kraus, saying, "They brag that they are doing something good for the north, but this is not a blessing, but another curse... Surely, these will not be the conditions that will lead us back to our homes."

He also believed that "fortifying the north should have been completed a long time ago." He continued, "It would be better for the government to explain to the public what is happening here, because we do not understand how they expect us to return home in this situation."

The correspondent noted that "Israelis, who have been living as refugees for 9 weeks in small rooms in hotels throughout the country and in rented apartments rented indefinitely, are running out of patience."

The correspondent mentioned that "there was no quiet in Kiryat Shmona yesterday, Tuesday, and from 5 pm to 6 pm, air raid sirens went off three times in the city due to missile launches from Lebanon, and the police dealt with several rocket impact sites."

Earlier, Israeli media reported that settlers in the north would not return to their homes if deterrence is not achieved with Hezbollah, and there is a state of frustration in northern settlements due to the ongoing operations of the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon.
