Hezbollah forces have been brought to the highest combat-readiness level for the next 48 hours amid the growing tensions in the Middle East, the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Raqi reported. According to the report, Hezbollah is ready to react to any possible threats, including attacks from Israel.
Earlier, Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil told RT in an interview that Lebanon has capabilities to counter any threats, but wants the stability and peace in the region.
Commenting on the crsisis in relations between Saudi Arabia and Lebanon, Hariri said it is a “good example [showing that] virtually anyone can start a war against us.” He added that the current crisis involves more sides mentioning the US and Israel.
“We should not be provoking Israel into a war simply because it is likely to lose it. We should restrain Israel from starting a war exactly because Lebanon is sure to win it,” he said.
