Israel’s Intelligence Minister said “all of Lebanon will be hit” after Hezbollah leader Nasrallah threatened to attack Israel’s nuclear facility in Dimona.
Israel’s Minister of Intelligence, Yisrael Katz, warned the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah that if it attacks Israel, “all of Lebanon will be hit.”
“If Nasrallah dares to fire at the Israel homefront or at its national infrastrucuture, all of Lebanon will be hit,” Katz said in a statement.
Katz made his remarks after Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah implicitly threatened to attack Israel’s nuclear facility in Dimona, located in Israel’s Negev region.
“I call upon Israel not only to evacuate the ammonia tank from Haifa, but also to dismantle the Dimona nuclear reactor,” Nasrallah said shortly after an ammonia tank up in Haifa was closed down earlier this week.
“The Israeli nuclear weapon that represents a threat to the entire region, we will turn it into a threat to Israel.”
Nasrallah’s remarks which were broadcast in a televised speech on the Hezbollah-affiliated al-Manar station, essentially implied a military capability on Hezbollah’s part to aim and fire missiles from Lebanon at specific targets located in Israel’s southern Negev region.
Since the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 1701, mandating an end to the Second Lebanon War in 2006 between Israel and Hezbollah, the Lebanese terrorist group has managed to significantly rearm its weapons stockpiles, far exceeding its levels 11 years ago.
Most recently, the UN’s Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Sigird Kaag, implicitly warned Lebanon’s president not to violate Resolution 1701 by allowing the arming of the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah.
