Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused the Lebanese government over the barrage of Katyusha rockets into Israel this morning. "The IDF responded strongly and quickly in response to the shooting from Lebanon, as it is our policy with Lebanon as against Gaza terrorists. . We do not allow even a trickle of rockets and we respond with force, and if necessary, we intercept the enemy in advance. We see the Lebanese government responsible for the attack carried out from within. "
In the Cabinet meeting Netanyahu added, "What is happening in Lebanon is that an organization called Hezbollah puts thousands of missiles and rockets in apartments in the heart of civilian populations, thus performing two war crimes at once. Organized shooting of civilians daily, while hiding behind them, using them as a human shield. This is a double war crime sponsored by the Lebanese government and the Lebanese army, who do not not lift a finger to prevent the weaponization of Hezbollah. We see the government of Lebanon responsible for this development. We also know that whoever is behind this weaponry of Hezbollah is of course Iran."
