BEIRUT, Lebanon – In an interview in Beirut on Saturday, Lebanese President Michel Aoun dismissed the possibility of an Israeli assault on Lebanon.

“After the July 2006 war Israel will no longer attack Lebanon”, the Lebanese president argued.

Michel Aoun referred to the war which erupted in 2006 between Israel and Lebanese paramilitary group Hezbollah and resulted in many casualties, citing this as a reason why Israel would not “be able to penetrate the Lebanese fronts”.

In November this year it was reported that Israeli troops were carrying out exercises in the north of Lebanon. 

The move added fuel to the complex situation unfolding in the Middle East, and led many to conclude that a conflict with Hezbollah was looking increasingly likely.
