- Israel Won’t Succeed If It Launches Another War on Lebanon, Says Hariri
Lebanese Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri says the Tel Aviv regime would not succeed in case it opts to launch a new military aggression against his country.
Delivering a speech at the Chatham House think tank in London on Thursday, Hariri downplayed the possibility of Israel waging another war on Lebanon, questioning what the Israeli military’s previous wars had accomplished.
“Did Israeli attacks weaken Hezbollah?” he commented. The remarks came four days after Hezbollah deputy secretary general said the Lebanese resistance movement’s arms capability has deterred Israel from aggression against Lebanon, stressing that “there is not a point in Israel not exposed to Hezbollah rockets.”
“Ever since 2006, Israel has been deterred by the ability of [Hezbollah],” Sheikh Naim Qassem said in an interview with Iranian Arabic-language al-Vefagh newspaper published on December 9, adding that all of Israel, “even Tel Aviv,” is subject to Hezbollah’s rockets.
