Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Monday advised Israel anew against waging any war on Lebanon, warning that his group will not abide by any “red lines” in any future confrontation, media reports said. “Israel must ‘count to one million’ before waging any war on Lebanon and we’re prepared for any threat”, the reports quoted Nasrallah as telling Iran’s state television. “We are not advocates of war. We are in the defense position” Hizbullah’s chief reportedly noted. “In the face of Israel’s threats to destroy Lebanon’s infrastructure, we will not abide by red lines, especially regarding Haifa’s ammonia and the nuclear reactor in Dimona. Hizbullah possesses the full courage for this”, added Nasrallah. A 2006 war between Israel and Hizbullah killed about 1,200 Lebanese, mostly civilians, and around 160 Israelis mostly soldiers before ending in a United Nations-brokered cease-fire. The Israel-Lebanon border has remained mostly quiet since the 2006 war but there have been sporadic outbursts of violence.
Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Thursday called on Israel to “dismantle the Dimona nuclear reactor” warning that it poses a threat to Israel’s existence if hit by Hezbollah’s missiles in any confrontation.“Israel is continuing to launch threats against Lebanon and speak of the third Lebanon war and of what it will do during this third war. This intimidation is not new and it seems that there is a permanent Israeli objective to pressure the resistance community in Lebanon, and after (Donald) Trump was elected U.S. president, this intimidation has returned” said Nasrallah in a televised speech commemorating Hezbollah’s slain leaders. Trump’s election does not scare us, even if claims that he will give (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu the green light to wage a war on Lebanon turn out to be true, seeing as the issue of war on Lebanon is not hinging on the American permission, Hezbollah’s chief noted. Commenting on an Israeli court’s order that an ammonia container in the northern city of Haifa be emptied of its toxic content, Nasrallah also advised Israel to “dismantle the Dimona nuclear reactor” warning that it poses a threat to Israel’s very existence if hit by his group’s missiles. Nasrallah added: “The resistance must remain prepared and ready and the enemy understands this because this is what’s deterring it”.
