Israel’s making up excuses to attack Lebanon: Foreign Minister
28 September, 2018
Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil fired back at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his recent allegations that Hezbollah has missiles stored in southern Beirut.
“Israel is once again making excuses to justify its aggression,” Bassil began.
“They are coming up with excuses to to violate the sovereignty of nations while using the United Nations as a platform,” he continued.
“They forgot how Lebanon defeated them and defeated their aggression,” Bassil said, adding that Israel’s “new friends” wont benefit them in the long-run.
Bassil’s comments were made in response to Netanyahu’s remarks at the United Nations on Thursday.
