Israeli minister threatens to destroy Lebanon
14 December, 2017
BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:35 A.M.) – The Israeli Intelligence Minister, Yisrael Katz, told a Saudi-owned news site on Wednesday that if Hezbollah starts another war with Israel, the latter will destroy Lebanon.
“This time all of Lebanon will be a target,” Katz told Elaph News.
“What happened in 2006 would be a picnic compared to what could happen… I say Lebanon will return to the stone age,” he threatened.
Katz’s threats come just days after Hezbollah held a massive demonstration in southern Beirut to protest Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
During the demonstration, Hezbollah’s Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, told the large crowd that the resistance will triumph over the Israeli forces, regardless of the latter’s aggression.
