“Iran pushes Hezbollah to act on the northern border.” These words were uttered by Israel’s Defense Minister Yoav Gallant to the UN General Secretary.
Tensions continue to rise between Hezbollah and Israel. Israel has even warned that war is close. Gallant met with United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres at the UN.
Iran pushes Hezbollah to act, the UN must ensure and maintain the ability to operate independently in southern Lebanon,” Gallant said during the meeting at UN headquarters in New York.
The Defense Minister stressed the need for the UN to take action as Israel will not be able to hold back while Hezbollah continues to violate Israel’s sovereignty. While its clear that war has always been the end point, the Jewish State wanted that war to occur when it was ready. Iran appears to be prodding Israel to react now instead of waiting.
The UN keeps a contingent of troops to Israel’s norther. The group, called UNIFIL is supposed to intervene to keep the peace – however they act far more as a PR stunt for the UN.
