Iran’s efforts to militarize Lebanon will not be tolerated : Netanyahu

According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says his country will not allow Iran to militarize Lebanon.

Heading for talks in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Netanyahu said on Monday that Iran is trying to turn Lebanon into “one giant missile site”, which will be used against Israel. He warned that this will not be tolerated by Israel.

The two leaders have met often to coordinate activities in Syria, where Russia has placed significant forces. Israel has been warning of Iran’s increasing efforts to establish a military presence in Syria and Lebanon, along Israel’s border.
