Lebanese Foreign Minister: We Will Defeat Israel in Any Future War


Lebanon will emerge victorious in any future conflict with Israel, the Cedar Republic’s foreign minister, Gebran Bassil, claimed in an interview published on Friday.

Speaking with the Russian government-funded RT media outlet, Bassil — the 47-year-old Maronite Christian head of the Free Patriotic Movement — stated, “We should not be provoking Israel into a war simply because it is likely to lose it. We should restrain Israel from starting a war exactly because Lebanon is sure to win it.”

Bassil went on to warn there would be “consequences for the whole region…[and] for Europe” if Hezbollah — the Iran-backed Shia terrorist group that is headquartered in Beirut and is part of the Lebanese government — was attacked by outside parties.

According to Bassil, Lebanon is able to counter “any threat” it faces.

Lebanon is on a knife’s edge following the recent resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri and the launch of a missile from Yemen at Riyadh — an “act of war” that Saudi Arabia blamed on Hezbollah.

In an interview published on Thursday by the Saudi newspaper Elaph, the head of the Israeli military, Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot, said the IDF had no intention of initiating an offensive against Hezbollah in Lebanon, and accused Iran of seeking to escalate tensions there.

  1. And exactly what kind of army does Lebanon have? What is this loudmouth talking about? Lebanon is like Staten Island. Everyone just uses it to pass thru and get somewhere else. Lebanon is like a used defenseless rag.

  2. You got to give it these Arab wackos for saying these ridiculous statements with a straight face. Apparently they didn’t learn from their own history.

  3. The Zionists could win under one condition and that is they recognize there are no civilians in war, meaning if an arab is in Lebanon even children in a maternity ward they are enemy combatants anything short of that they will lose.

  4. Lebanon/Hezbollah has tens of thousands of rockets much more advanced than hamas has. the iron dome is no match for that. on the other hand we have G-d on our side so I wouldn´t worry
