Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah made renewed threats to Israel on Saturday, but one Israeli politician, who was defense minister during the Second Lebanon War, had some harsh words for the terror leader.

"While Nasrallah has hid in a bunker for the past 10 years, children in Kiryat Shoman have been playing at playgrounds and going to school without fear," said Zionist Union MK Amir Peretz on Sunday. "From our point of view, that is victory enough."

Turning his attention toward the 2017-2018 budget, which the cabinet approved on Friday, Peretz said that "A larger budget is needed to stand up to the challenge" posed by Israel's enemies. "The IDF learned its lessons of war and put them into use...but there is still much to be done.
