Reports say that Congressman Cory Mills, a Republican from Florida, recently went to Israel to help get American citizens who are stuck in the middle of the war there out of the area. The Floridian said that Mills quickly solved the problem by going to Israel right away to speak for the state of Florida.
For security reasons, the exact location of Mills is being kept secret. In spite of this, Mills said he was going to show support for the Israeli people and help American citizens get out of the area during the heavy Hamas attack because he felt it was his duty as an American.
Mills is a respected fight veteran of the U.S. Army who has been given the Bronze Star award for his outstanding service.

This isn’t the first time Mills has shown guts. Before being elected to the House of Representatives in 2021, Mills, who was just a regular citizen at the time, planned for the chartering of an airplane to go to Afghanistan to save American citizens who had been left behind when the Biden administration left office. There were problems with the brave plan, as Mills was said to be in immediate danger of being targeted by U.S. military people while the task was being carried out.

Historically, the presence of Hezbollah in Lebanon has caused conflict along Israel’s northern flank. If true, the current assault will dramatically alter the Israel-Hamas conflict in the Middle East.
In the early 1980s, when Israel occupied southern Lebanon, Iran supported the formation of Hezbollah. Over time, Hezbollah has developed both a military wing and a political wing. They hold seats in the Lebanese parliament and politically represent a significant portion of Lebanon’s Shiite population. Their army is well-trained and well-equipped, and it has participated in numerous engagements both within and outside Lebanon.

Hezbollah has fought alongside Israel in multiple wars, including the 2006 Lebanon War, the South Lebanon War (1985–2000), and the Lebanese Civil War. Along the border between Israel and Lebanon, the group has conducted tunneling operations, assaults, and rocket attacks into Israel.
Reminders if northern front opens.
Hezbollah is a terrorist organization controlled by Iran.
Hezbollah like Hamas uses human shields.
Hezbollah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad sit together in Beirut in a joint cell coordinated by Iran.

The United States, Canada, the European Union, the Arab League, and a number of other nations and organizations classify Hezbollah or its military wing as a terrorist organization. Iran, which views Hezbollah as a strategic ally and a counterweight to Israel in the region, has provided substantial financial, political, and military support to the organization.
As an Iranian proxy, the organization has exacerbated sectarian tensions in Lebanon and throughout the Middle East.
