Tensions between Israel and Lebanon rose Sunday as Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that a third war between the two countries has become "inevitable".Lieberman's comments came a day after U.S. publications The Washington Post and later Newsweek revealed how the CIA and Israel's spy agency Mossad were behind an elaborate plot to kill Mughniyeh in 2008 .After deciding on the right bomb, CIA and Mossad agents had to wait months to carry out the operation, monitoring Mughniyeh's movements and waiting for a moment when he was alone to carry out the strike.However, there is a stark difference between the two publications on one detail of the operation regarding who actually detonated the bomb that killed Mughniyeh. The CIA justified the operation by stating that Mughniyeh was a threat to American national security as he had been involved in a number of operations that killed Americans and was also thought to be training Shiite militias in Iraq that were targeting American troops at the time.
