Israel threatens Lebanon with “full strength” ground invasion

https://www.rt.com/news/417610-israel-ground-operation-lebanon/

Tel Aviv is ready for an all-out ground invasion of Lebanon in the event of a military conflict with Beirut, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said. His comments come as relations between the two neighbors continue to sour.

“We must prepare for maneuvering on the ground too, even if we do not use it,” the minister said at a conference of the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) held at Tel Aviv University on Wednesday.

Not mincing his words, Lieberman said that, in a worst-case scenario, Israel would conduct the operation at “full strength.” “We must not take one step forward and one step backward. We will move forward as fast as possible,” Lieberman added, speaking about the Israeli strategy in a possible conflict with its northern neighbor.

At the same time, he said that “maneuvering is not a goal in itself,”but is a means of ending the war in what Tel Aviv sees as the most efficient way.“No one is looking for adventures, but if we have no choice the goal is to end [the fighting] as quickly and as unequivocally as possible,” the minister told the conference, adding that Israel’s past experience has shown that “all the conflicts in the Middle East”do not “come to an end” without “soldiers on the ground.”

Israel will act tough on Lebanon, the minister warned. He particularly said that the situation of the Second Lebanon War, “in which the residents of Beirut were at the beach and in Tel Aviv [they were] in bomb shelters,” will not repeat itself if a new conflict breaks out. “If in Israel they sit in shelters, then in the next fighting all of Beirut will be in shelters,” Lieberman added.

The minister’s comments come amid Israel’s concerns over the Lebanese Hezbollah armed group, which allegedly plans to arm itself with locally-produced precision-guided missiles.

“The Hezbollah terror organization is violating the UN Security Council resolutions, maintaining a military presence in the region, possessing weapons systems and increasing its military capabilities,” Gabi Eisenkot, the head of the Israeli Defense Forces General Staff, said on Tuesday, as cited by Haaretz.

  1. When an Israeli says “The Hezbollah terror organization is violating the UN Security Council resolutions” What does it mean?. Which security resolution passed against Israel is not violated?

    I am just asking to understand when is Un Security Council resolutions to be respected and the other side to violate it?

    I personally sympathize with Israel, but when I hear that an Israeli speaks about Un security council resolution violation, I don’t understand it at all.

    I know that there are more than 100 UN Security Council resolutions that violated by Israel. I understood that violating UN Security Council resolutions by Israel as normal. The only country that teaches us about deportations by Nazis against Jews is Israel. The worst is, now Israel is on the verge to deport Eritreans from Israel to some other country in Africa. Most probably to the notorious country Ruanda.

    Please refreshes me to understand Israel that it cares of humanity and it respects UN Security Council resolutions.
