Israel warns Lebanon a Hezbollah attack will bring reprisal against Lebanon
Israel has told Lebanon that any Hezbollah attack against Israel would bring an Israeli response against Lebanon as a whole, Channel 13 says.
According to the report, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo yesterday to pass a message from him to Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri.
The message: If Hezbollah responds to reported Israeli strikes against Iranian and pro-Iran militia targets in Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq, in recent days, Israel “will respond severely against Lebanon as a whole. It won’t distinguish between Lebanon and Hezbollah,” in the words of Channel 13.
