Lebanon gets it
This is a scene that Lebanon would not like to see repeated. It's Beirut Airport on fire during the early hours of the Second Lebanon War in 2006. Lebanon is so eager to avoid being attacked that it is making sure that everyone knows that although Hezbullah is part of its government, Lebanon is not responsible for Hezbullah actions outside Lebanon
....Lebanese circles have taken into consideration Israeli warnings and
informed the ambassadors of the major countries, with emphasis on the lack
of responsibility of Lebanon for any action aimed at Israel or Israelis from
outside Lebanese territory...
These circles confirmed for Al-Anbaa that Hezbollah understands that
officials fear of Lebanese land being used to respond to the Israeli
aggression, in any place or direction, and Minister Mohammed Fneish advised
the Council of Ministers on Thursday that whenever the response will come,
Lebanon’s interest will be taken into account before anything....
Well, good luck with that!
