Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant
Tel Aviv: Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant has warned Hezbollah, saying they were dragging Lebanon to a probable war, and “Israel can do everything it has done in Gaza to Beirut”.
Gallant said this in response to Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasarallah’s warning to Israel against its reactions in Lebanese territories.
The Israeli Defence Minister, while addressing soldiers alongside the Commander of the IDF’s 91 division and other senior officers serving in the region, said that Hezbollah was no longer making just provocations but was also indulging in aggressions.
He cited the examples of several exchanges of fire along the border injuring people and soldiers on the Israeli side and added that the Israeli Defense Forces would not remain a mute spectator to this.
Gallant said: “Our pilots are sitting in the cockpits and their aircraft are facing North. We have not used 10 per cent of our air force’s power in Gaza.”
Nasaralleh had also said that the Israeli occupation forces were making grave mistakes by trying to attack Lebanon and added that all their attempts would fail.
