jos_hezbollah-300x202 Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri said on Thursday that Israel's threats against Hezbollah are perceived as threats against Lebanon. "We consider the Israeli threats on Lebanon to be a threat to the Lebanese government as a whole, rather than to one particular person,
" said Hariri during a joint news conference with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo, Reuters reported. He added that in his country, "everywhere is under the authority of the Lebanese government." His remarks came after Yossi Peled, an Israeli cabinet minister and a former army general who has experienced the conflict on the northern border, said on Saturday, January 23, that another confrontation with Hezbollah was almost inevitable but he could not say when it would happen. The minister without portfolio said that according to his "estimation, understanding and knowledge," it was "almost clear" to him that another conflict on the border with Lebanon was imminent. "It does not necessary have to be between us and Hezbollah, other elements may be involved in this," Peled said. Hariri, meanwhile, called for Arab solidarity with Beirut to counter the Israeli threats. Israel launched a war against Lebanon in 2006, during which more than 1,200 — mostly Lebanese civilians — were killed. Israel was forced to withdraw from the Lebanese territories after 33 days, failing to achieve any of its objectives.
