However, he warned the group against taking any actions that might result in Lebanon’s “devastation.”
“We hope Hezbollah won’t, de facto, bring about the destruction of Lebanon, because if there is a war there the result will be no less,” Tzachi Hanegbi said during a televised briefing.
Israel was focusing on the war in Gaza, Hanegbi said, and “trying not to be drawn into a two-front war”.
The national security advisor noted that the more limited fighting across the Lebanese border showed Hezbollah was staying “under the escalation threshold”.
