Israel sends proposal for humanitarian aid to Lebanon
Gantz sent the proposal through UNIFIL, but it’s expected to be refused by Lebanon. The move comes after Gantz has repeated several times in recent weeks that Israel is willing to offer assistance to its northern neighbor, which is suffering from a worsening economic crisis, with the World Bank calling it one of the world’s worst financial crises since the 1850s.
Israel has offered assistance to Lebanon in the past, and even today we are ready to act and to encourage other countries to extend a helping hand to Lebanon so that it will once again flourish and emerge from its state of crisis.
Due to the long-standing enmity between the two sides, Beirut is expected to refuse the help.
