Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah disclosed that the resistance was behind the bomb which targeted an Israeli patrol in Shebaa Farms in mid March, noting that it was part of response for the Israeli raid on a resistance garrison in Janta.
In an inclusive dialogue with Lebanese daily, As-Safir, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Israeli enemy got the message well, noting that “the issue here is not about rules of clash (with the Zionist entity), but about deterrence.”
Sayyed Nasrallah considered that the Zionist entity through his raid on Janta was testing the ability of resistance to benefit from the current situation, especially Hezbollah’s involvement in the battle in Syria, in a bid to change the rules of the clash.
“When we had planted the bomb in Labbouneh we wanted to deliver a message for the enemy: We don’t permit to change the rules of the clash. Wherever you enter, and we know, we will confront you.”
Sayyed Nasrallah said that if the resistance held its tongue following the raid, “the enemy may strike any truck, house or any other target in any place (in the future) under the pretext that Israel is committed to strike qualitative weapons.”
Hezbollah S.G. ruled out a new Israeli war on Lebanon, stressing that the course of events in Syria raise the concerns of the Israelis.
Following these developments, the Israelis are raising questions about whether this experience will enable Hezbollah, if a new war takes place (with Israel), to adopt new courses in the battalion. In this context Israel’s eye is on Galilee, resistance leader added.
Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah considered that the risk of terrorist bombings in Lebanon has dropped considerably, noting that the resistance is not facing a problem with its mass over the involvement in the Syrian war.
“On the contrary, some of those who were hesitant have now made their choice to support us,” Sayyed Nasrallah told as-Safir, adding: “some of March 14 public support our intervention in Syria in order to protect Lebanon from Takfiri terrorist groups.”
His eminence pointed out that the danger of Syrian regime fall has ended.
“They can launch an exhaustive war as long as some states still funding, arming and inciting.”
He said nothing indicates that the opposition in Syria can launch massive war, noting that what is coming on in Lattakia and Kassab can’t be called a massive war.
The great battle which they have talked about starting from Syria’s south is closer to intimidation than reality, Sayyed Nasrallah said, noting that the experience in the last three years has proven that the regime is not weak and that it also enjoys popular incubation.
He stressed that one of Hezbollah’s priorities for the Syrian war to end, pointing out that “we have passed the danger of partition.”
The resistance leader revealed that serious offers were presented to (Syrian) President (Bashar) al-Assad to cut ties with Iran and resistance movements, and to go seriously on a settlement with Israel. However, President Assad refused and “this stance should be recognized.”
Sayyed Nasrallah noted that many Arab states are “in contact with the Syrian regime under the table and tell President Assad: We are with, hang in there.”
“I even know that some Arab states support the opposition ostensibly. However under the table, they ask the regime to resolve the battle.”
According to the Russian position, Sayyed Nasrallah said he believes that Moscow’s stance following Crimean crisis will be more firm, adding that support to Syria will be greater.
Concerning his eminence’s approach to the “Arab Spring”, Sayyed Nasrallah said that protests in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt started by people and youths, noting that these protests surprised the Arab regime as well as US, France, the West, the international community and the regional countries.
“The problem of leadership and planning within these popular movements paved the way for another parties and sides to interfere and exploit the events.”
“Prior to the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ there was a serious discussion, precisely by the Americans, over the necessity to divide Saudi Arabia,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
His eminence added that France and Britain were involved in this discussion (to divide KSA), noting that some Gulf States reported this event.
