Lebanon’s president said that Israeli threats will be met by an “appropriate response” after an Israeli minister said that “all of Lebanon will be hit” if the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah attacks Israel.
Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun implicitly rejected threats by Israel’s Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz against Hezbollah, saying that any violation of Lebanon’s sovereignty would be met with an “appropriate response.”
“Any attempt to hurt Lebanese sovereignty or expose the Lebanese to danger will find an appropriate response,” Aoun said in a statement released by his office on Saturday.
Minister Katz had said that “all of Lebanon will be hit” if the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah follows through with its threats to attack Israel’s nuclear facility in Dimona, located in the southern Negev region.
Notably, Aoun’s statement did not provide many specifics regarding the details of such a response, and whether any such response would come from Lebanon’s army or from the terrorist organization Hezbollah.
