Bennett: Israel “in a different place” since the 2006 Lebanon war, despite the threat from Hezbollah

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said Israel has significantly improved its military capabilities in the 15 years since the Second Lebanon War in 2006, which was marred by mismanagement and dysfunction.

“Today we are in a different place,” Bennett said at the Israel National Defense College graduation ceremony.

Bennett warns that Lebanon today is “on the verge of – or even I would say in the midst of – a collapse,” because of Iran’s influence in the affairs of the country.

“We have a common enemy with the citizens of Lebanon: Iran and Hezbollah,” the prime minister said, adding that unlike the Lebanese, Israel has the capacity to counter them.

“We will not allow any country or terrorist organization to threaten the State of Israel, its security or its sovereignty,” Bennett said.
