Israeli Minister Says ‘Lebanon Equals Hizbullah’ after Election

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

An Israeli ministers said on Monday that high Hizbullah results in the country’s parliamentary elections, means Israel “will not differentiate” between Hizbullah and the State of Lebanon in any future war.

“The results of the elections in Lebanon have been based on our perception for some time: Lebanon equals Hizbullah,” said Israeli minister Naftali Bennet on Twitter.

“Israel will not differentiate between the sovereign State of Lebanon and Hizbullah and will see Lebanon responsible for any action emanating from its territory,” he added.

Lebanon staged its first legislative elections in nine years on Sunday, with polls marking a low turnout.

Although official results have not been yet announced, but Hizbullah was poised to seal a win in some electoral districts mainly in south Lebanon's second and thirds electoral districts.

The Hizbullah-AMAL Movement coalition's campaign also said its list won four seats in Beirut's second district -- one for Hizbullah, one for AMAL, one for al-Ahbash and one for the Free Patriotic Movement.

When did Israel "differentiate" between Hezbollah and Lebanon?
Even when it was PLO in the 80s Israel still did not differentiate between this Lebanon state and the PLO.

In 2006 war that you 'won', Israel did not hit one state building. You recall or must we remind you?

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2018, 14:29

And yet they still hit the LAF state troopers in 2006.
So what was your "point"?

Thumb justin 07 May 2018, 15:20

you mean they hit the Ministry of Defense? Interior? Army Barracks? Presidential palace? ISF headquarters?

Go troll on manar.com, please.

Israel bombed the international airport in Beirut, is that not a state area you hasbara stooge.

Thumb s.o.s 07 May 2018, 16:08

Quit trolling mystick. You know very well that they hit the airport to prevent another influx of weapons. That’s why they didn’t target our MEA aircrafts.

Mystic, Israel hit the runways to make sure not a single Iranian plane would land. Airport buildings were intact.

Thumb Southern......... 07 May 2018, 16:33

If you cowards lived in Lebanon, your IP would be traced and you would be arrested by now.

The question should be can Hezbollah "differentiate" between what's good for Lebanon and what's good for the Islamic Republic of Iran?

Thumb ashtah 07 May 2018, 10:49

not only 'equals'... Lebanon is Hizbullah.
