Lebanon's caretaker prime minister, Najib Mikati, said on Monday that countries should pressure Israel to stop attacking Lebanon following a U.N. Security Council decision calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Mr. Mikati has a sense of humor.

It was indeed Hezbollah that began its attacks against Israel on October 8th.

The Israeli military and Lebanese armed group Hezbollah have been trading fire across the southern Lebanese border in parallel with the Gaza war.

In a statement shared by his office, Mikati said "When it comes to Lebanon, we renew our call to concerned countries to pressure the Israeli enemy to stop its continued aggression on southern Lebanon, ».

Najib Mikati has no power in a country controlled by Iran and its proxy Hezbollah.

Lebanon has lost its sovereignty.

The economic reforms recommended by the IMF will not be implemented due to the blockade imposed by local politicians.

The Lebanese Prime Minister is in no position to offer advice.
