BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 P.M.) – Lebanon’s Minister of Defense Elias Bou Saab sat down for an interview with Sputnik Arabic on Saturday to discuss a number of topics, including the possibility of war with Israel.

When asked about the possibility of war with Israel, Bou Saab said it is very unlikely that Lebanon would enter into a war with their neighbor to the south.

“I do not think there is a high chance of military action by Israel against Lebanon,” Bou Saab stated. “It is not in Israel’s or Lebanon’s interest to have a war because a war like this would be harmful.”

“This war will be harmful to the Lebanese people and its economy. This war will also be harmful to the Israelis and the Israelis know that,” he continued.

“If things change at the regional level and the dispute has regional dimensions, Lebanon will try to distance itself and not be a partner in a regional conflict,” he said.

Bou Saab pointed out that Lebanon would not relinquish any part of its land or sea borders in its indirect negotiations with Israel. These negotiations have been mediated by the United States, he continued.

“Lebanon has special conditions for demarcating land and sea borders, it is not a precondition for negotiations,” he added.

To be honest, Lebanon is only safe thanks to Hezbollah. Without Hezbollah capability to turn occupied Palestine into cinders, the Zionist criminals would have stolen more Lebanese lands than just Shebaa Farms, and now they also covet Lebanese oil, gas and water resources. Hezbollah needs to strengthen its military capability even more as US warmongers and Zionist parasites want to plunge the whole region into endless conflict by sponsoring terrorism.

Right! While the Lebanese Christians used to support Israel, this is no longer the case, esp since the 2006 invasion. Here is a link to a video of a well-known Lebanese Christian singer singing the praises of Hezbollah:
