International journalists based in the Middle East care precious little about the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in Lebanon, who for several decades have been protesting the apartheid and discrimination practiced by an Arab country.
While Netanyahu warned the diplomats that Iran controls Lebanon politically via its terror proxy Hezbollah, Danon showed them proof of Iran's intentions to direct attacks on the Jewish state via cross-border terror tunnels.
'None of the new tunnels had reached the Israeli border, unlike the six tunnels that have been destroyed by Israel,' announced an Israeli official, adding that the tunnels could still be used to infiltrate Israel.
After the IDF launched Operation Northern Shield to destroy Hezbollah-built attack tunnels extending into Israel from Lebanon, it demanded the UN peacekeeping force fulfill its mandate and assist in the efforts.
Danon charged Hezbollah with 'advancing an Iranian agenda to turn southern Lebanon into a launching pad for attacks that threaten the lives of innocent Israelis, while endangering Lebanon and its citizens.'
