Netanyahu: If Nasrallah dares to attack Israel, Hezbollah and Lebanon will pay a very heavy price
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting said that if Hezbollah terror group leader Hassan Nasrallah dares to attack Israel, Hezbollah and Lebanon will pay a very heavy price.
“In recent days we have heard a senior Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander again threaten that Iran will destroy Tel Aviv from Lebanon. He thus reveals a simple truth: Hezbollah is simply Iran’s arm in Lebanon against Israel”, Netanyahu said.
“Even though Nasrallah immediately denied the senior Iranian commander’s remarks, I would like to make it clear that if Nasrallah dares to attack Israel, the organization and the Lebanese state that enable aggression from its territory against us will pay a very heavy price”, PM Netanyahu added.
Netanyahu also addressed the annual Day of Appreciation for those wounded in Israel’s wars and in terrorist attacks.
There are 57,277 disabled IDF veterans who are suffering both physical and mental injuries, recognized by the Defense Ministry’s rehabilitation department, the ministry announced.
“Today we are marking appreciation day for those who were wounded in Israel’s wars and acts of terrorism. I initiated this day several years ago because Israel always, and rightly so, remembers the fallen, but we must also remember those who were wounded in war and who carry their wounds, both physically and mentally, all their lives”.
“I thought then, and of course, I still think today, that the State of Israel needs to express its appreciation in a separate way, and hence this special day. In a few days we will celebrate Chanukah, the holiday of heroism. Heroism is, first of all, heroism of the spirit, and the wounded and the fallen are our heroes. We will continue to do everything so that the wounded will not march alone. I salute our heroes”.
