Israel has conveyed a message to Amos Hochstein, the special envoy of U.S. President Joe Biden, during his recent visit to the country. 

According to the message, Israel is interested in the success of its diplomatic efforts, but if they fail, it will be committed to taking military action to push Hezbollah away from southern Lebanon. 

Israel has clarified that without the removal of Hezbollah, residents of the north will refuse to return to their homes. 

Israel is not optimistic about the diplomatic process but is attempting to follow it through to the end, primarily to gain legitimacy in case military action is necessary in the north.
