Lebanon diverting Hezbani River?

The IDF is concerned that Lebanon is planning to divert the Hezbani River to deny Israel its waters. The waters of the Hezbani, which is north of Metula, provide 25% of the waters in the Jordan River.
The IDF is deliberating responses ahead of the possibility that Lebanon will divert water from the Hatzbani River, a move that Israel has in the past viewed as a casus belli – justification for war.

Israel’s concern stems from the construction of a large tourism center on the Lebanese side of the river, not far from the Israeli town of Metulla.


Israel is concerned about the site’s proximity to the border, particularly in light of a number of near-clashes between IDF troops and soldiers from the Lebanese Armed Forces.

“It has our attention and we are keeping a close eye on what is happening there,” the officer said. “Our concerns range from the diversion of water to the possibility that the tourism center will be used as cover to launch attacks against Israel.”
Hezbullah seems to be looking to start a war with Israel. And if they do, you can bet that we will respond.

Seeing how it's Lebanon, they'll flood themselves and kill hundreds. When that happens, we need to cheer.
