Lebanon denies Israel's Hezbollah missile sites claim

The Lebanese foreign minister worries that Israel will use the claims as a justification for an attack on Lebanon.

    Lebanon's government has taken diplomats and journalists on a tour of Beirut to try to disprove Israeli claims of Hezbollah bases.

    Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had told the UN General Assembly that the armed group has hidden missile sites near the international airport.

    But Lebanon says these are false allegations to justify an attack.
