Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman paid a visit to the Golan Heights on Friday, where he met with mayors from the area and heads of regional councils.

Speaking to reporters near the Syrian border, the Yisrael Beytenu leader said Israel's policy of containment – "meant to achieve quiet in the short run" – will ultimately harm the nation's security and deterrence in the long term.

This policy "will encourage and spur Hezbollah to execute more terrorist attacks from Lebanon and Syria," he warned.

He also said the Lebanese-based Shi'ite group "is working to turn the Syrian side of the Golan Heights into an outpost in order to carry out attacks against Israel."

Hezbollah, Liberman said, was working to turn the reality in the region to that of south Lebanon.
