On Tuesday, Israel made a formal offer to provide humanitarian aid to Lebanon. The offer came through the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) at the southern Lebanese border as the nations do not have diplomatic relations.
Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz announced on Twitter that this offer was “in light of the difficult economic situation in Lebanon, and in light of Hezbollah‘s attempts to bring Iranian investments into Lebanon.”
Gantz added that Israel‘s assistance would help Lebanon “flourish and emerge from its state of crisis”.
