Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz warned EU diplomats that “there are too many homes in Lebanon that also serve as arms depots. The Lebanese state will need to be held accountable for the activity on its soil and you should communicate this through your governments to the Lebanese government”. He further noted that “new voices are emerging from within Lebanon and we have even begun to enter dialogue on maritime borders... we can both learn from that type of process that dialogue is possible and productive. And were the Lebanese government to cease to be under the influence of Iran and Hizbollah, we could take an entirely different course toward dialogue and cooperation”.
