[Jerusalem Post, July 24, 2019] Israel’s ambassador to the UN: The Port of Beirut is now the Port of Hezbolla
Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah on Friday denied Israeli accusations that his terror group was using the port in Beirut to smuggle parts for weapons manufacturing into Lebanon.
“I categorically deny the claims by Israel’s UN envoy that Hezbollah is using Beirut’s port to ship arms into Lebanon,” Nasrallah was quoted saying by the Lebanese news site Naharnet.
“His [Danon’s] words were said in order to prepare the ground for taking over the operations at the ports and the airport and to accomplish what they couldn’t succeed [in doing] during the Second Lebanon War,” Nasrallah said in his speech Friday, according to Israel’s Ynet news site.
Netanyahu tweeted this today:
“We hit a cell and now we hit the dispatchers. We will do what is necessary in order to defend ourselves. I suggest to all of them, including Hezbollah, to consider this.”
