Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Friday condemned Israel for its military operations in the Gaza Strip.
Hamas and the IDF exchanged hostilities sporadically over the course of the past 48 hours, with the Islamist movement firing mortars at Israeli soldiers operating near the Gaza-Israel frontier.
The IDF has retaliated with tank fire and fighter jet sorties against Hamas targets.
The Israeli military has been engaged in intensive efforts to ferret out and destroy Hamas-built tunnels that traverse the subterranean Gaza-Israel frontier.
"The Arab world is keeping quiet in light of this situation," Nasrallah said.
