Netanyahu Warns Hezbollah After Israeli Killed

By    |   Thursday, 07 December 2023 02:52 PM EST

Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon have been put on notice by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to initiate war with the Jewish state unless they want Beirut to resemble Gaza.

Hezbollah has fired dozens of rockets and missiles into northern Israel since Israel’s war with Hamas began following the latter's Oct. 7 terrorist attack. On Thursday, a 60-year-old Israeli man was killed when Hezbollah fired an anti-tank missile that struck a car he was driving in the small community of Mattat, just south of the border with Lebanon.

“If Hezbollah decides to open an all-out war, then with its own hands it will turn Beirut and southern Lebanon, which are not far from here, into Gaza and Khan Younis,” Netanyahu said while meeting with Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reservists at an artillery battery in the Upper Galilee, near the Lebanese border, according to The Jewish Voice.

Israel retaliated for the missile strike by bombarding Hezbollah positions in southern Lebanon.

“This evening we light Hanukkah candles,” said Netanyahu, who was visiting the IDF Northern Command headquarters. “In times of combat, this candle shines light, also out of grief for our heroic sons and daughters who have fallen, for our hostages whom we have not yet returned but whom we will return, for the wounded who are suffering and for the civilians who have also fallen in heroic battles.”
