Yoav Gallant, Israel’s defense minister, warned Lebanese Hezbollah that “Beirut may suffer the same fate as Gaza” if the pro-Iranian group drags Lebanon into war. – If Hezbollah makes such mistakes here, the first to pay the price will be the citizens of Lebanon, the Israeli minister stressed on Saturday.
Gallant on Saturday was in northern Israel, bordering Lebanon and referred to the activities of Hezbollah, an ally of the Palestinian Hamas. An Israeli minister warned of the possible consequences of Lebanon being drawn into the war. – What we can do in Gaza, we can also do in Beirut, said Minister Yoav Gallant. He added that if Hezbollah “makes mistakes,” “the first to pay the price will be the citizens of Lebanon.”
Announcement of further attacks
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said on Saturday that his formation has started using new weapons (drones) in attacks that it has been carrying out against Israel from Lebanon every day since the beginning of the war in the Gaza Strip.
– Over the last week (…) there has been an intensification of resistance actions on the Lebanese front due to the number of operations, the number of designated targets, and the weapons used, Nasrallah said, announcing further attacks on Israel.
