Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterates numerous warnings he made against Hezbollah before the recent ceasefire with Hamas, telling the Lebanese terror militia that Lebanon will be destroyed if it opens up a major war against Israel.

“We are acting in the north all the time against all efforts by Hezbollah to operate against us. We are eliminating terror cells, pushing them away from the border, destroying munitions. We will continue with strong deterrence in the north, and total victory in the south,” says Netanyahu.

“We will restore security to the north and the south. If Hezbollah makes a mistake and enters into a broad war it will have destroyed Lebanon with its own hands,” he warns.
