(Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs) Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid and Defense Minister Benny Gantz toured the Lebanese border with the IDF Northern Command on Tuesday. Prime Minister Lapid said, "Israel is interested in Lebanon being a stable and prosperous neighbor that is neither a platform for Hizbullah terrorism nor an Iranian tool....Hizbullah's aggression is unacceptable and is liable to lead the entire region into an unnecessary escalation....The State of Israel is taking action against all of Iran's proxies in the region and beyond, and will continue to do so." Defense Minister Gantz said, "Israel is ready to do much for its neighbors' prosperity and is prepared to take action at any time to protect its citizens....Lebanon and its leaders know very well that if they choose the path of confrontation, they will be hurt and get burned severely."
