Lieberman: We won’t let Iran build a missile factory in Lebanon

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Monday: “We won’t allow Iran to establish a missile plant in Lebanon and we know exactly who there has a hand in the project.” Speaking at a meeting of his Israel Beitenu party, Lieberman added: “The Iranian plan is obvious, It is to turn Lebanon into a giant missile base targeting Israel, to strengthen the Hamas front in the Gaza Strip and to deepen Iran’s military involvement in Syria. We won’t tolerate the transformation of Lebanon into a missile site and I believe we still have the time and the means to achieve this.”  DEBKAfile: While the minister presented the threat in the future tense, the fact is that Iranian surface missiles targeting Israel are already based in Lebanon.

      Better attack it with cruise missiles. F-35 only for the remaining radars, AAA and SAMs.

    …Way too much blah-blah and (historically so far) little decisiveness and political courage from the Israeli successive leaderships.
    As a result: a massive Preemptive attack is Not a choice anymore, but a Must ! Or the Jewish state faces
    horrifying, unacceptable losses – both in lives and property…
