Sheikh Naim Qassem, the Deputy Secretary-General of Hizbullah, said in a July 22, 2019 interview on Mayadeen TV that Israel and its important sites are vulnerable to Hizbullah’s weapons no matter how much it fortifies them. He said Hizbullah would target sites throughout Israel in a conflict and that Hizbullah has increased its preparedness and the quality of its equipment such that no measures can effectively protect Israel’s domestic front from it. He explained that a war between the U.S. and Iran would spread to the entire region and that the entire Middle East would be “ablaze” with conflict between the pro-American block and the pro-Iran block. Commenting on Argentina’s designation of Hizbullah as a terrorist organization, Sheikh Qassem said that this is a result of pressure exerted by the U.S. on the countries of the world to aid in its plan of “besieging” Hizbullah. He also denied any connection between Hizbullah and the explosions that have taken place in Argentina. In addition, Sheikh Qassem said that though relations between Hamas and Hizbullah had been a bit cold during the height of the Syrian crisis, their relations have since been restored to an even better state than they had been in before.
