As Hezbollah continues to carry out attacks on northern Israel, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant warns that the terror group is “close to making a grave mistake” that will end with Beirut residents fleeing their homes.
“I am saying here to the citizens of Lebanon, I already see the citizens in Gaza walking with white flags along the coast and moving south,” says Gallant during a visit to an army base on the northern border.
“Hezbollah is dragging Lebanon into a war that may happen, and it is making mistakes,” he says.
“If it makes mistakes of this kind, the ones who will pay the price are first of all the citizens of Lebanon. What we are doing in Gaza we know how to do in Beirut,” Gallant warns.
He says that the Israeli Air Force is using less than a tenth of its power in the Gaza Strip.
“Our pilots are sitting in the cockpit, the noses of the planes are pointing north. We have enough to do in the south, but the Air Force is facing north and its power is very great,” he adds.
