Liberman says those who threaten Israel will ‘pay a dear price’

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman threatens that any country or terrorist group that threatens Israel will “pay a dear price, very dear,” after the IDF shot down what it believes was an Iranian built drone sent by Hezbollah toward the Israeli Golan Heights.

“I want to again note the high level of preparedness by the IDF, which knows how to handle every surprise, every problem and every threat,” Liberman says, during a visit to the Elbit defense contractor in the southern town of Arad.

“As I’ve said in the past, we do not intend to suffer any threat or any attempt to harm the security of the State of Israel. Anyone who tries to harm our sovereignty needs to know that he will pay a dear price, very dear,” he says.

“We are ready for any scenario, in every region,” Liberman adds.
