Sheikh Qassem: Hezbollah ready to repulse Israel’s attack on Lebanon

Tasnim – Hezbollah’s second-in-command Sheikh Naim Qassem said his movement is prepared to fight a new battle against Israel if the Zionist regime dares attack Lebanon.

Al Ahed news quoted Sheikh Qassem as saying on Sunday that the complicated situation in the region and the Zionist regime’s conditions are not such that Israel may launch a new war against Lebanon.

Sheikh Qassem said he did not believe that Israel could launch a new invasion of Lebanon, but if such a war breaks out, Hezbollah will be ready to fight off.

He also dismissed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s accusation that Hezbollah has dominated the Lebanese government, explaining that Lebanon has a national unity government in which Hezbollah has only a 10 percent share.

In comments in December 2018, Sheikh Qassem had announced that all Palestinian territories occupied by the Zionist regime of Israel are within the target range of Hezbollah’s missiles.

On December 1, 2018, Hezbollah released a video, warning that if the Israeli regime makes any act of aggression against the Arab country, it would regret it.

The video showed Hezbollah Secretary General Seyed Hassan Nasrallah, warning that any aggression on Lebanon would definitely be responded to.

It also showed a number of Israeli sites such as military bases, nuclear sites, the Israeli military headquarters in Tel Aviv, and the Hezbollah missiles.
