Israeli Spokesperson Addresses PM in Tweet about Hizbullah
Israeli army Arabic spokesperson Avichay Adraee said in remarks he addressed to Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri on Twitter that “Hizbullah is still lying to you and to the Lebanese.”
“You have said these things about (UN) Resolution 1701 long ago. We truly want to believe you, but the problem is that Hizbullah is still lying to you and to the Lebanese,” said Adraee.
Adraee’s remarks come in the wake of Israeli claims it had discovered Hizbullah tunnels infiltrating its territory from Lebanon and launched an operation to destroy them.
Hariri had stressed on Wednesday “the Lebanese government commitment to the full obligations of Resolution 1701,” and that Israel’s operation to destroy alleged Hizbullah tunnels on Lebanon’s border should not lead to “any escalation.”
