Lebanon's warring politicians put aside their differences Tuesday, coming together to denounce Israeli allegations of Hezbollah missile sites near Beirut's airport. President Michel Aoun vowed to confront any Israeli aggression against Lebanon's sovereignty, as he met with Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl, according to a statement from Aoun's office.During the meeting at Baabda Palace, Aoun criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's recent allegations that Hezbollah was storing precision-guided missiles at three sites located near Beirut's airport. Following the bloc's weekly meeting, led by Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri, it insisted that Lebanon would not be a battleground for conflicts that are not its own.The statement warned against the "dangers" of the threats made by Israeli officials and claimed a backlash of responses would distance Lebanon from serious dialogue with the international community.
