Yoav Gallant, the Israeli minister of defense, issued a dire warning to Hezbollah, which is supported by Iran, on Saturday that the initiation of hostilities in Lebanon would resemble the devastation witnessed in Gaza during Israel’s conflict with Hamas militants.
As Hezbollah continues to carry out attacks on northern Israel, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant warns that the terror group is “close to making a grave mistake” that will end with Beirut residents fleeing their homes.
“I am saying here to the citizens of Lebanon, I already see the citizens in Gaza walking with white flags along the coast and moving south,” Gallant said.
“Hezbollah is dragging Lebanon into a war that may happen, and it is making mistakes,” he continued.
According to him, the Israeli Air Force’s electrical consumption in the Gaza Strip is less than one-tenth.
“If it makes mistakes of this kind, the ones who will pay the price are first of all the citizens of Lebanon. What we are doing in Gaza we know how to do in Beirut,” he warned.
“Our pilots are sitting in the cockpit, the noses of the planes are pointing north. We have enough to do in the south, but the Air Force is facing north and its power is very great,” he concluded.
