President Reuven Reuven is warning Lebanon the Iran-backed terrorist militia will lead to the country’s downfall.
During a visit to the Ramon Air Force base in southern Israel to light the third Hanukkah candle with soldiers, Rivlin urges Lebanon stop allowing Tehran to use its territory to further its agenda.
“We see the government of Lebanon as responsible for what happens in Lebanon, and we warn Hezbollah not to subjugate Lebanon to an Iranian agenda, or to use Lebanon as a base for attacking Israel,” Rivlin says according to a statement from his office.
“Hezbollah, which portrays itself as the ‘shield of Lebanon’ will bring its eventual downfall,” he adds. “The discovery of these tunnels only prove the depth of Iranian involvement in Lebanon, both in funding and in political direction.”
