Israel slams Russia-Lebanon arms deal

Israel has sharply criticized Russia for signing the arms deal with Lebanon, citing concerns that whatever arms the Lebanese army will posses will eventually fall into the hands of Hezbollah militants , Lebanon Files reported

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly urged the Russian leaders to cancel the deal . In his protest he reportedly said ” The arms that Russia gave to Syria was used by Hezbollah during the 2006 war .”

Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri said at the end of the talks with Russian PM Vladimir Putin that Russia has decided to donate to the Lebanese army six helicopters model MI 24, thirty one tanks model T-72 , thirty six cannons 130 mm , about half a million munitions for various weapons and thirty thousand artillery shells for the 130 mm cannons.

    Here you have it Syria is not Lebanon so Netanyahu is really mistaken. The reason he does not want a strong army is to give HA a reason to keep their arms so Israel keeps milking the U.S. under the terms that their neighbors are aggressive. Get it through your thick stupid head the only aggressor is Israel and now with a strong LAF waltzing into Lebanon won’t be a picnic.

    Israel is armed to the teeth with every possible deadly weapons system, including hundreds of nuclear bombs, yet they complain about few Russian tanks from the 50 era.
    I would not be surprised if it was more costly for Russia to keep, and maintain these tanks, than to give them away. I forgot the helicopters, and the 36 cannons; do they really think HA needs to, or can fly these choppers in a war with Israel? lol
    Many be some one can help me out here; When a country wants to donate weapons, How does it come up with the numbers? How do they come up with 31 tanks, 36 cannons, and 6 choppers. Why not 30 tanks or 35? Why not 36 or 40 canons? It‘s a puzzle for me .lol
