The Lebanese army posted on Twitter a clear message stating that it is ready to face any possible Israeli aggression.
Lebanon's army will use every available means to confront any potential "Israeli aggression" no matter the cost, its commander said on Monday.
"I affirm again our categorical rejection of the Israeli enemy infringing on Lebanon's sovereignty and its sacred right to exploit all its economic resources," the Lebanese army quoted General Joseph Aoun as saying on Twitter. "The army will not spare any method available to confront any Israeli aggression, whatever that costs."
Israel says it is building the wall on sovereign Israeli land. The Lebanese government insists that it passes through Lebanese territory, but it is on the Israeli side of the Blue Line, where the United Nations drew the border after Israel withdrew from southern Lebanon in 2000.
The three leaders agreed to take action "at various regional and international levels to prevent Israel from building the concrete wall inside the Lebanese border and from potentially hitting the oil and gas resources in Lebanese territorial waters," Aoun's office said in a statement.
