Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a stern warning to the Hezbollah terrorist group in Lebanon Wednesday after gunfire from Lebanon struck an IDF post overnight.
“Israel views with utmost gravity the shooting at our forces by Hezbollah,” Netanyahu said“We will not tolerate any aggression against our citizens and we will respond forcefully to any attack against us,” he warned. “I suggest that Hezbollah not try the crushing force of Israel. Hezbollah is once again endangering Lebanon with its aggression.”
The prime minister held consultations overnight with senior defense officials before issuing the statement.
