Ramadan wishes from the Israeli military spokesman received strong reactions online as many questioned the sincerity of a video message posted to the IDF YouTube account. Halfway through the address, Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai shifted the focus to Hezbollah, a Lebanon-based militia group saying, “This year, it has become clear to everyone that Hezbollah is not protecting Lebanon, but destroying it.”

Since being posted on July 9, the video has received nearly 250 comments and over 6,000 views. Initial responses on Twitter and YouTube were mostly skeptical, with several calling the well wishes a public relations move.
