Israel’s defence minister announced that “in light of the dire economic situation in Lebanon, and considering Hizbollah’s attempts to deepen Iranian investments in the country, I have contacted UNIFIL via the IDF’s liaison officials and discussed a proposal to transfer humanitarian aid to Lebanon”. “Israel has offered assistance to Lebanon in the past”, he noted, “and even today we are ready to act, and to encourage others countries to extend helping hand to Lebanon so that it will once again flourish and to emerge from its state of crisis”.
