(MENAFN) Israel raised on Tuesday its hostile rhetoric against Lebanon when a number of ministers spoke of waging a "destructive" war against it over the flow of Iranian weapons to it and amid claims that it has made rocket factories there.
Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said: "We know where the Iranian rocket factory is located and the sides that were involved in its establishment."
On Lebanon, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that precision-guided weapons have been detected there, which is a "dangerous threat we are not willing to accept. If we have to take action, then we will."
Netanyahu said that rocket factories are being constructed in Lebanon. "Israel is not trying to escalate the situation, but our interests demand that the Israeli army and security forces be prepared," he went on to say.
"The Russians know very well our position and how seriously we take these threats," he stressed.
