Defense Minister Yoav Gallant stated that Israel would not be a part of a trilateral committee to regulate the security situation on the border with Lebanon, in a Friday post on X, formerly Twitter.

"While the State of Israel is fighting the most just war in its history, France has shown hostility and enmity against us, while blatantly ignoring the atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists against children and women - just because they are Jews," Gallant wrote.

בשעה שמדינת ישראל נלחמת במלחמה הצודקת ביותר בתולדותיה, צרפת הוכיחה עוינות ואיבה כנגדנו, תוך התעלמות בוטה ממעשי הזוועה שביצעו מחבלי החמאס נגד ילדים ונשים - רק בשל היותם יהודים.

לא נהיה שותפים לוועדה להסדרת המצב הביטחוני בגבול הצפון אם צרפת תקח בה חלק.

— יואב גלנט - Yoav Gallant (@yoavgallant) June 14, 2024

"We will not be partners in the committee to regulate the security situation on the northern border if France takes part in it," he concluded.
