[efoods]”We know Hezbollah is growing stronger with Syria’s help, and occasionally with Iran’s assistance, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said during a tour of the northern border on Tuesday.
“Should the (security) situation deteriorate, we’ll hold the Lebanese government and all those who help Hezbollah responsible,” said Barak at an IDF outpost overlooking south Lebanon’s villages.
Barak was briefed by senior IDF officers, including Northern Command Chief Major-General Gadi Eisenkot, on the army’s activity along the security fence. He later spoke with soldiers stationed in the area.
