Defense Minister Benny Gantz said on Wednesday that Iran's efforts to establish terror infrastructure in Syria and Lebanon are harmful to both those countries.
Speaking to young Israelis attending a pre-military service educational program, the minister said Iran was trying to buy influence over Lebanon through the Hezbollah terror group.
"Lebanese energy dependence on Iran may lead to the establishment of permanent Iranian military bases within Lebanon - and its people will pay the price," Gantz said.
