The News Line: News ‘Don’t invade Lebanon!’ – Hezbollah warns Israel
Palestinians marching in London for Justice – Israel is now preparing another intervention into Lebanon
A SENIOR official of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says the group is ready for any military scenario, amid indications that Saudi Arabia is pushing the Israeli regime to launch a new military onslaught against Lebanon.

‘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 yesterday.

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 the occasion of Hezbollah Martyrs Day, Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah stated that Saudi Arabia has appealed to the Tel Aviv regime 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 Arabia 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. The Hezbollah chief says Saudi Arabia has openly declared a war on Lebanon by keeping Prime Minister Saad Hariri under house arrest.

‘Saudi Arabia is afraid of facing Iran, and wants to take revenge on Hezbollah instead,’ he commented. About 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians, lost their lives during Israel’s 33-day war on Lebanon back in the summer of 2006.

According to the 629-page Winograd Report by the Israeli regime itself, Hezbollah fighters involved in defending Lebanon against the Israeli attack defeated the enemy and Tel Aviv was compelled to withdraw without having achieved any of its objectives.

UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the 2006 war, calls on Israel to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Speaking in an exclusive interview with Lebanon-based Arabic-language al-Manar television network, Head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council Sayyed Hashem Safieddine stated that the resistance movement will ‘surprise’ Israel in any future war, relying on its enhanced military capabilities.

Safieddine stressed that Hezbollah has been changing and developing new military capabilities, and Israeli reports on Hezbollah’s weaponry are ‘“inaccurate as the enemy intelligence agencies can never reach veracious data in this context.’
