Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Gilad Erdan has warned of a military confrontation with Hizbullah “if the group continues its terrorist activities.”
Erdan said that UNIFIL is not fulfilling its mandate, during a meeting with the new head of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), Maj. Gen. Aroldo Lázaro Sáenz.
He accused Hizbullah of “continued infringement on the freedom of movement of the Lebanese people and UNIFIL soldiers” and urged UNIFIL forces to act against it.
“Hizbullah’s actions could lead to a future military confrontation that would bring disaster to Lebanon,” Erdan warned.
“If Hizbullah continues its terrorist activities, Israel will have to respond forcefully,” he added.
