Lebanon’s Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil claimed on Monday that Israel was attempting to “justify another aggression,” using false allegations of missile sites belonging to Iran-backed Hezbollah, located in the country.

“Israel is planning to violate the sovereignty of other countries, while it is forgetting Lebanon has defeated it. Israel’s arrogance and ‘new friends’ will not help it this time,” Bassil tweeted.

Addressing the claims of the Israeli PM, the Lebanese Foreign Ministry invited all foreign ambassadors in the country to meet on Monday afternoon in order to examine the alleged Hezbollah bases.

“The presentation will be followed by a visit to one of the sites near Beirut’s airport,” the Foreign Ministry said.

In Thursday’s speech, holding up a satellite image, Netanyahu accused Hezbollah of hiding missile sites around Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport.

And once exposed at the UN, getting Israelis knew these locations while not supposed to, facilities were moved immediately then Gebran Bassil comes several days later proposing to visit emptied facilities! In the west, we’re many knowing about full car factories having seen all their equipments moved during a week-end, with puzzled workers finding an empty factory on Monday.

Had Gebran Bassil called the press immediately for a visit to be made under 2-3 hours, his narrative would work. Several days later, it falls totally flat! Nasrallah wouldn’t miss a Bibi speech! Moving the gear was ordered immediately.

In fact, pointing these sites made Hezb moving these, so IDF hasn’t to strike an airport or a stadium then being accused of war crimes, despite such facilities make the Hague Convention protection void, just like Gaza hospital with Hamas HQ under.
