Lebanon President Michel Aoun slammed on Tuesday as “baseless” the allegations of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu about missile sites near Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport
“Allegations of Netanyahu about military bases around the airport’s vicinity are baseless and conceal an Israeli threat to Lebanese sovereignty,” said Aoun.
Aoun stressed that Lebanon will fight back shall Israel decide to carry out any aggression against it.
“Lebanon will confront any Israeli aggression against its sovereignty,” he said.
