On May 25, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah threatened Israel with a “grand war,” in response to recent warnings to Lebanon from officials in Tel Aviv.
In his annual Resistance and Liberation Day speech, which marks the Israeli withdrawal from southern Lebanon 23 years ago, Nasrallah said Israeli leaders should “be careful and not make wrong calculations.”
Israeli Military Intelligence Directorate chief Aharon Haliva said on May 22 that Nasrallah was “close to making what he called a “mistake” that “could spark a regional war, while warning that the conflict between Israel and Iran was becoming increasingly direct.
Speaking at a conference hosted by the Institute for Policy and Strategy of Reichman University in Herzliya, Haliva said “the chances of an escalation that could deteriorate into war is not low,” and that, as far as Nasrallah is concerned, a recent flareup on the Israel-Lebanon border may not be over.
“The Israelis must retract their threats and give up their arrogance,” Nasrallah said, responding to Haliva. “Any mistake might blow up the entire region,” he added, directly addressing Haliva’s remarks.
Hezbollah leader went on to say that Israel “failed to restore deterrence” during fighting earlier this month against the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Gaza.
“The deterrence equation is what’s protecting Lebanon,” he said, adding “You are not the ones to threaten a grand war; we are the ones who rather threaten you with it.”
Haliva’s warning came after Hezbollah held a military exercise in southern Lebanon, some 20 kilometers away from the front with Israel, on May 21. The group showcased multiple rocket launchers, anti-tank guided missiles, man-portable air-defense systems and drones during the exercise, sparking panic in Tel Aviv.
On May 23, the Israeli Defense Forces dropped leaflets over southern Lebanon warning people against approaching the frontline, in what appears to be a response to Hezbollah’s exercise. Later on May 25, Israeli troops downed a small quadcopter drone that was likely launched by Hezbollah after it crossed the frontline.
Nasrallah’s threat affirmed that Hezbollah is determined to maintain deterrence against Israel even if this meant risking a full-blown war.

israel should do the people of lebanon a favor and barbecue him 😆😆😆
safly israel loves him, they feed off each other. nasrallah also loves israel how else would he try to justify his arms to his brainwashed masses.
they certainly would, but they can’t.
nasrallah shouldn’t do it. the region will be in flames. this would be even worse for the lebanese, the syrians and the palestinians no matter how much damage israel would get. maybe israel should kick the kahanists and the ultra-conservatives out from the government but nevertheless it can spark an inter-levantine war and more people will suffer. iran won’t be damaged at all actually but the three peoples of the levant will be.
stop panicking like a teenaged girl. nothing is going on.
stop trolling you phaggot

can’t wait to see the mullahs on the battlefield taking on the knesset team…….. these dictatorships should be fighting each other in person. these warlords should look for their own planet where they can be stupid and constantly argue. but without hostages, they probably wouldn’t argue that often. this world is ridiculous because it has politicians, mullahs, presidents, etc. has.
porque meus comentários estão sendo excluídos?
the fact that russia hasn’t given hezbollah good missiles and proper air defence is criminal

so then they open fire on israel, a-gain, and get the shit knocked out of them, a-gain, and then it’s quiet for a while, a-gain…kind of a pattern, here.
