DM Lieberman: Everything Must Be Done To Avoid A Third Lebanon War


Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman speaks of the threats posed to Israel by its neighbors in the region, which were at the center of the Prime Minister’s meeting with President Putin.

“Israel is determined to completely eliminate the threat of tunnels making their way from Gaza to Israel,” he said.

Regarding Iranian involvement in Lebanon, Lieberman said that Israel recognizes many sites in Lebanon supposedly designated for construction but are actually used as factories for the manufacture of weapons and missiles in Lebanon. He clarified that “Israel knows all the people involved in the manufacture of these missiles.”

It is possible to prevent the establishment of factories not only by means of bombs, we operate all the political levers and other levers in order to prevent missile production, and the last thing I would like was to enter a Third Lebanon War, “the defense minister said.
