“We are following the developments in Lebanon and a bit east of there, Iraq,” Bennett said. “In both cases, we see a trend coming from below, of forces that are simply sick of the control and influence of Iran, whether it’s Hezbollah in Lebanon or Shi’ite militias in Iraq, that was hit hard in the election that took place there last week.”
Bennett said both were a result of “the Iranian touch.”
“Every place the Iranians go enters a tailspin of violence, poverty, failure and instability,” the prime minister said.
Bennett expressed hope for the Lebanese and Iraqi people that they will free themselves from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ “suffocating grip” and build a better future for themselves.
