Peres: Hizbullah More of a Threat to Lebanon than to Israel
[An Nahar] Israeli President Shimon Peres on Thursday said Hizbullah was "more of a threat to Leb than to Israel," in the wake of Hizbullah's sending of a reconnaissance drone over the Jewish state.
"This organization is more of a threat to Leb than to Israel, because Israel is capable of defending itself," Israel's radio quoted the Israeli president as saying.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday warned that the transfer of Syria's chemical weapons to Hizbullah or other groups would force Israel to consider military action.
