Israel’s defense minister said in a threat to Hezbollah,
“If it (Hezbollah) makes this kind of mistake here, the ones who will pay the price will be first and foremost Lebanese citizens,” Gallant told soldiers on Israel’s northern border in remarks relayed by his office.
Clearly, Israel admits that it targets civilians.
The Israeli defense minister continues,
"What we’re doing in Gaza, we can also do in Beirut.”
In case you’re wondering, this is what Beirut looks like.
Yes, Lebanon has churches contrary to what the media would like for you to believe. The photo of the church on the mountain is not in Beirut, but another town.
