Israel's Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz has warned that Israel would return Lebanon to the stone age if Hizbullah attacked the Jewish State.
“In order to avoid any doubt on the matter, (Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan) Nasrallah the cowardly braggart should know this: that option does not exist for us!,” Katz wrote on his facebook page, according to Israeli media.
“If such a scenario does materialize, we will raze Lebanon to the ground! We will return it to the Stone Age and bury (Nasrallah) under the rocks,” he said after a fiery speech by the Hizbullah chief on Ashura.
Nasrallah said Tuesday that “Israel's threats of another war on Lebanon do not stem from its power because it has lost hope and is concerned.”
He reiterated that Hizbullah “is fully ready in southern Lebanon” despite the presence of the party's fighters in Syria.
“You should close all of your airports and your ports because there is no place extending on the land of occupied Palestine that the resistance’s rockets cannot reach,” Nasrallah warned.
