Hariri Rejects Israel’s Anti-Iran Claim

Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri rejected Israel’s claims that Iran is building factories to produce missiles on Lebanese territory, accusing the Israeli regime of carrying out “deception campaigns”. In an interview with French daily Le Monde, which was published on Friday, Hariri said Israel “knows very well there are no missile factories in Lebanon”, Press TV reported In a meeting with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres earlier this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had claimed that Iran was “building sites to produce precision-guided missiles ... in both Syria and in Lebanon.” Israel’s minister of military affairs, Avigdor Lieberman, echoed Netanyahu’s accusations against Iran in a meeting with the UN chief, saying Iran was “working to set up factories to manufacture accurate weapons within Lebanon itself.” Later, Israeli media claimed that Hariri had raised “objections” and was acting to stop the alleged factory construction. In the Le Monde interview, however, the Lebanese prime minister rejected the allegation altogether. “The Israelis are used to conducting campaigns of deception,” he said.
