“Coverage of the Conflict with Hezbollah in Metula, Israel” – Video

In a recent episode of “60 Minutes,” Lesley Stahl and her team reported from the Israeli border town of Metula, which has been under constant bombardment from drones and missiles fired by Hezbollah militants from Lebanon. The town has been mostly abandoned by its residents, with only a few people remaining underground in a bunker complex for safety.

During their time in the bunker, Stahl and her team experienced a drone attack, rigged with explosives, which tragically resulted in the deaths of two Israeli soldiers. The situation in Metula has been tense for the past seven months, with residents living in fear of ongoing attacks and uncertainty about the future.

The mayor of Metula expressed his concern over the severity of the situation, emphasizing the urgent need for a resolution to the conflict. As the team prepared to leave the bunker, they were instructed to drive away quickly as the fighting intensified once again in the area.

The episode provides a harrowing look at the impact of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hezbollah on the residents of border towns like Metula. The team’s firsthand experience sheds light on the seriousness of the situation and the need for a peaceful resolution to the tensions in the region.
