On Saudi Media, «Israeli» Minister Threatens to Strike Lebanon Like Syria

In an interview with Saudi media on Wednesday, the "Israeli" entity's so-called Intelligence Affairs Minister Yisrael Katz threatened to attack Lebanon to prevent an Iranian military presence, as he invited Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to visit the entity.

Saudi Arabia and the "Israeli" entity had recently been normalizing ties, although both countries do not share diplomatic ties.

Describing Saudi Arabia as the leader of the Arab world, Katz proposed that the kingdom would be a sponsor of the so-called "Israeli"-Palestinian "peace process". Katz added that the entity would be happy to participate in such negotiations.

Katz said the entity is aware that Iran has been building alleged weapons plants in Lebanon. "We have information that Iran is building advanced missile plants in Lebanon, and I want to emphasize that we have drawn a new red line, and we will not allow them to do this at any cost."

Asked by his interviewer whether the "Israeli" entity views the visit of an Iraqi resistance leader to south Lebanon as an Iranian attempt to send a message to the entity, Katz said Iran doesn't need to send a message, adding that "Israel" knows exactly what the Iranians are doing in the region.

When his interviewer asked whether the "Israeli" entity could bomb the alleged missile plants in Lebanon, Katz replied: "Yes. We will also act militarily and prevent them, as is happening in Syria."

He went on to threaten Lebanon as saying: "The more accurate that Hezbollah's missiles get, the stronger and wider ‘Israel's' strike will be. This time, all of Lebanon will be a target."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel's telegraphing of war against Iran and Lebanon is risky, in light of the reality that if Israel does press ahead with war against Iran, Russia will most probably assist it militarily, as its leadership has committed to do many times over the last several decades.

And as we have seen in Syria, the Russians do have both tactics and weaponry which perform brilliantly well.
