Israel Threatens Lebanon with ‘Destructive War’

 Israel raised on Tuesday its hostile rhetoric against Lebanon when a number of ministers spoke of waging a “destructive” war against it over the flow of Iranian weapons to it and amid claims that it has set up rocket factories there.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said: “We know where the Iranian rocket factory is located and the sides that were involved in its establishment.”

The Iranian influence in the region, particularly over Syria and Lebanon, was at the heart of talks between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Monday.

The PM said that the discussions tackled whether Iran will set up base in Syria and whether it will continue or cease its regional expansion. “If it does not stop, then we will put an end to it,” he added. 

On Lebanon, he said that precision-guided weapons have been detected there, which is a “dangerous threat we are not willing to accept, if we have to take action, then we will.”

According to foreign reports, the foundations for an underground factory were constructed in Lebanon, but it was discovered by Israel, which forced the termination of the project. Some Israeli officials speculated that Iran has not completely abandoned this project and has perhaps moved it to a different location in Lebanon.
