JAKARTA – Israel has threatened at least three countries if they interfere in the war against Hamas in Gaza, Palestine. The three countries are Iran, Yemen and Lebanon.
Israeli Economy Minister Nir Barkat said his country’s military would wipe out Iran and Lebanon from the face of the Earth if it intervened in the Gaza war.
Meanwhile, the threat to Yemen was made by Israeli Army Commander Tomer Bar.
Israel’s threat to Lebanon refers to the behavior of the Hezbollah group which is openly ready to open a new front in the Israel-Hamas war.
