Szijjarto said the anti-terrorist operations must be prevented from escalating into a war between countries and called for every possible effort to prevent the opening of further fronts in Israel and its neighbourhood.

Szijjarto welcomed that the Lebanese government also had an interest in preventing an escalation.
