Tueni: Israeli officials are aware of Lebanon's capacity to fight them.

NNA - Minister of State for the Fight against Corruption, Nicolas Tueni, said Sunday that Israel was convinced that Lebanon was capable of confronting any possible aggression against Lebanon. "Israeli officials are convinced of Lebanon's ability to lead the fight against them and know the price they will pay for any adventure they would consider, but they will not dare," Tueni said in a statement. The statement added that "any Israeli threats against Lebanon, its territorial waters and its oil resources, will bounce back in the first place on Israel and its officials." Tueni deemed that the hostile positions toward Lebanon were counterproductive and unwise to what the Zionist rulers wanted. "The hostile positions against Lebanon were counterproductive for the reason that the companies operating in Israel will not continue their work, in the climate of terrorism provoked by the Israeli officials," the statement added. Tueni concluded by saying that the "Lebanon's unified position" against Israel's attempts to encroach on the land and sea borders stressed "the determination of the Lebanese people to fight any aggression led by Israeli officials." ================= R.K.
