- ‘No More Tolerance of Israel Over Lebanese Airspace’: Hezbollah Head Signals ‘New Phase’ of Conflict
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has vowed to usher in a “new phase” of conflict with Israel, insisting Tel Aviv will no longer violate Lebanese airspace with their drones and promising to respond in force.
In a video address on Monday afternoon, Nasrallah condemned the recent incursions into Lebanon by Israeli drones, threatening to shoot down the next such craft that breaches the country’s airspace.
“When we down the next Israeli drone in Lebanese airspace soon, those who want to complain that this will lead to an escalation, address your complaints to the Israelis who send these drones,” he said.
“This is the start of a new phase, there is a new battlefield which is targeting Israel’s drones in Lebanon’s skies, and it is in the hands of Hezbollah field commanders.”
"This is the start of a new phase, there is a new battlefield which is targeting #Israel 🇮🇱 drones in #Lebanon's 🇱🇧 skies, & it is in the hands of #Hezbollah field commanders", #Nasrallah brags adding @netanyahu wanted to change rules of engagement but "we broke their red lines"
