The Jerusalem Post reports: Former defense minister Moshe Ya’alon said Sunday to a Saudi news website that the decisions in Lebanon are made by the Iranian supreme leader, Ali Khameini, and not by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.
In the interview on the London-based “Elaph,” Ya’alon pointed to Iran as governing the actions of Hezbollah, its proxy group in Lebanon, and the possible implications for Israel. “There is no nation called Lebanon, the decisions are made by Iran and not by the president or Nasrallah,” Ya’alon said. “If Khamenei wants war, then Lebanon will go to war, and every Lebanese [person] will suffer from the next war because all infrastructure will be destroyed.”
Regarding weapons manufacturers in Lebanon that were built by Iran, the former minister said, “I am sorry that the matter arose in the media before their destruction.”
