Liberman: Israel must respond to Hezbollah attack to maintain deterrence capability

If Israel fails to respond to the Hezbollah attack that killed two IDF soldiers on its side of the Lebanese border, it deterrence capability will be harmed, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said.

Those who argue that Israel should ignore the incident, Liberman said, are supporting a situation in which Hezbollah can strengthen its arms capacity and hold on Israel’s borders with Lebanon and Syria, so they can attack when ever they want.

“This would be a serious blow to Israel’s deterrence capability,” he said.
