MK Defiant in Face of Iranian-Suppoted Hizbullah

Member of Knesset Meir Sheetrit (Hatenua) expressed defiance against the threat of Hizbllah following a meeting of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. He spoke to Arutz Sheva news at the Knesset on Thursday about the injuring of four IDF soldiers along the Lebanese border a few days ago.

"Hezbollah is an enemy for us and we will not rest on our laurels. We are closely following everything that Hezbollah does," MK Sheetrit stated. "Hezbollah talks a lot," he commented, but said the IDF would be ready for any situation with the Lebanese-based terrorist organization. He called Hezbollah a proxy group of the Iranian regime. "Hezbollah is used as a long arm of Iran," he said. MK Sheetrit added, "We have a strong and wise army and we have the tools to protect the citizens of Israel."
