A senior Israeli minister said Wednesday Israel will wreak havoc on Lebanon if Israel is drawn into another war with Hezbollah.
Addressing a large gathering of Christian broadcasters in Jerusalem, Education Minister Naftali Bennett said Lebanon would be held accountable for any actions against Israel by Hezbollah because it had granted the Iranian-backed group legitimacy.
“If Lebanon has Hezbollah as part of its government, and it’s harboring thousands and thousands of missiles in its homes, then Lebanon is game,” Bennett said. “Its infrastructure, international airport and government facilities – it’s all game. Because if you don’t want that to happen, it doesn’t need to happen. You just dismantle this thing called Hezbollah.”
As Bennett put it, during the last war with Lebanon in 2006, the United States delivered the following message to Israel: “Hezbollah, you go get them, but don’t touch Lebanon though.”
Israel would disregard that dictate in the event of another war, Bennett said. “What I ask you to understand is that Hezbollah equals Lebanon and not ask us to do the impossible feat of tweezering out terrorists from supposedly a great, peace-loving nation,” he said.
The same statements has been made also in 11 March of 2017 by Naftali Bennett.
