Alwaght- Lebanon's resistance movement, Hezbollah, says it is ready for any military scenario amid reports that Saudi Arabia is pushing the Israeli regime to launch a new military onslaught against the country.
“The Israeli enemy understands very well the repercussions of any act of aggression against Lebanon. It cannot withstand those consequences,” Deputy Chairman of Hezbollah's Executive Council Sheikh Nabil Qaouq said on Monday.
He added, “Nothing can undermine Hezbollah’s capabilities as its positions are deep-seated and unwavering. The resistance movement is prepared to confront anything. It is fully capable of securing victories and repelling any aggressor.”
Addressing his supporters via a speech broadcast live from the Lebanese capital city of Beirut on November 10 and on the occasion of Arba’een and Hezbollah Martyr Day, Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah stated that Saudi Arabia has appealed to the Tel Aviv regime to for a military campaign against Lebanon in the name of fighting Hezbollah, and is ready to spend billions of dollars to attain this objective.
“Saudi wants to destroy Lebanon under the pretext of combating Hezbollah. It was the main architect of Israel’s war on Lebanon in the summer of 2006,” he pointed out.
“Israel may push Takfiri militants to start a war against Lebanon. I don’t think Israelis would choose to get into a war with Lebanon following an act of cool calculation,” Nasrallah said.
“Saudi Arabia is afraid of facing Iran, and wants to take revenge of Hezbollah instead,” he noted.
This comes after Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri announced his resignation on November 4 while in Saudi Arabia, citing several reasons, including the security situation in Lebanon, for his sudden decision. He also said that he realized a plot being hatched against his life.
Hariri also accused Iran and the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, of meddling in the Arab countries’ affairs; an allegation the two have rejected. The Saudi regime intends to use these accusations as an excuse to launch a proxy aggression against Lebanon.
