Israel Defense Minister Benny Gantz reported Israel has offered four times over the past year to provide emergency assistance to Lebanon and the Lebanese Armed Forces.
Gantz explained the Lebanese army is suffering from a shortage of basic supplies and has lost more than 5,000 soldiers that abandoned it recently.
Lebanon is dealing with an economic collapse, suffering and unemployment on a massive level, yet when Lebanon’s new Prime Minister Najib Mikati was sworn into office in September 2021, he said his government “will deal with anyone for the sake of Lebanon’s interest, with the exception of Israel, of course.”
Fortunately, this has not dissuaded Minister Gantz from repeatedly extending a neighborly arm of friendship and resource driven support, in hope that eventually the offer will be accepted and the rebuilding of the Good Fence relationship between the two countries can recommence.
