Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary-General of the Lebanese resistance organisation Hezbollah, gave a live interview to Lebanese news agency Al-Mayadeen from an undisclosed location in Lebanon, on Saturday evening.
Sayyed Nasrallah mocked the Israeli failure to detect underground ‘resistance tunnels’ for up to 14 years as an “failure of Israeli intelligence,” stating that “this means the Israeli intelligence, army and security agencies and all Israeli technology in 14 years have not discovered this tunnel inside its territory.”
On the possibility of a future war with the Israeli state, Sayyed Nasrallah stated that “the strategic environment has changed compared to earlier years… They say a war is dangerous and it won’t be with one front or one side, but it may open all fronts [Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Iran] and that it may have a very critical impact on the [Israeli] domestic front.”
The Lebanese resistance leader ended with a warning to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “The summary of what I want to say on this issue, as time is running out, is a message to Netanyahu: Be cautious not to exaggerate what you are doing in Syria. Miscalculations could drag the region into a war or a major confrontation.”
