Barak: We will not initiate an attack in northern arena

“We are not looking for confrontations. Israel will not initiate attacks in the northern arena but we are strong and deterring,” Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Tuesday during a talk with high school students in northern Israel.
According to Barak, “If we are forced into a confrontation, we will not seek to run after every Hizbullah operative in some village or after a rocket launcher hidden under a tree, but rather we would hold the government of Lebanon and all of Lebanon responsible for any Hizbullah attack and we strongly advise them not to try and take action against us.”
