Israel has reportedly sent strongly-worded messages to Lebanon, delivered through France, warning the Arab country of the consequences of the precision missiles possessed by the Hezbollah resistance movement.
According to Israeli media, the issue was discussed at length during a Wednesday meeting between the regime’s President Reuven Rivlin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron in Paris.
The talks, also attended by Israeli air force commander Amikam Norkin, were held ahead of Macron’s planned visit to Beirut.
In a move coordinated with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Rivlin has reportedly stressed Tel Aviv’s concern over Hezbollah’s “large rocket and missile arsenal”, and what Israel calls “efforts made by Iran and Hezbollah to improve the precision of the missiles the Lebanese organization holds.”
He has also expressed the regime’s worry about the tunnels Israel says Hezbollah has dug near the occupied territories.
