Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a simple, straightforward message this week when he toured Israel’s border with Syria and Lebanon with top security officials.
The Israeli Navy is charged with defending the country’s territorial waters, an area that is twice as large as the state itself and is becoming increasingly crowded with highly lucrative natural gas fields and shipping lanes, and it needs help.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Wednesday that should war erupt again with Lebanon, Beirut will 'pay the full price' for Iran’s entrenchment in the country.
Hezbollah sent a threat to Israel this week stating that if the Israeli Defense Ministry does not stop building the barrier wall along the Lebanese border, the terrorist organization will open fire towards Israel. The barrier wall aimed at preventing Hezbollah terrorists from infiltrating into Israeli territory has been under construction for several years. However, Hezbollah only recently expressed its outrage towards the obstacle.
For years, Syrian Christians had been praying for a revival. 'But never did we imagine it would come because of war,' said one church leader. Seven years of civil war has left Syria in ruins. Many of those who came from Christian families left early on in the war, a cause of great despair as church leaders watched their congregants slowly disappear.
Saad Hariri returned to Lebanon late Tuesday for the first time since he stunned his country by announcing from Saudi Arabia that he was quitting as prime minister more than two weeks ago.
Saudi Arabia warned Sunday that it would not stand idly by in the face of Iranian 'aggression,' as Bahrain said the Iran-backed terrorist group Hezbollah was “in total control” of Lebanon.
Gadi Eisenkot has offered to share Israeli intelligence about Iran with Saudi Arabia, in remarks published in a rare interview with a Saudi newspaper published in London.
