• Hezbollah prepared to face any military scenario: Official

A senior official of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says his group is ready for any military scenario amid indications that Saudi Arabia is pushing the Israeli regime to launch a new military onslaught against Lebanon.

“The Israeli enemy understands very well the repercussions of any act of aggression against Lebanon. It cannot withstand those consequences,” Deputy Chairman of Hezbollah's Executive Council Sheikh Nabil Qaouq said on Monday.

He added, “Nothing can undermine Hezbollah’s capabilities as its positions are deep-seated and unwavering. The resistance movement is prepared to confront anything. It is fully capable of securing victories and repelling any aggressor.”

Addressing his supporters via a speech broadcast live from the Lebanese capital city of Beirut on November 10 and on the occasion of Arba’een and Hezbollah Martyr Day, Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah stated that Saudi Arabia has appealed to the Tel Aviv regime to for a military campaign against Lebanon in the name of fighting Hezbollah, and is ready to spend billions of dollars to attain this objective.

“Saudi wants to destroy Lebanon under the pretext of combating Hezbollah. It was the main architect of Israel’s war on Lebanon in the summer of 2006,” he pointed out.

“Israel may push Takfiri terrorists to start a war against Lebanon. I don’t think Israelis would choose to get into a war with Lebanon following an act of cool calculation,” Nasrallah said.

“Saudi Arabia is afraid of facing Iran, and wants to take revenge of Hezbollah instead,” he commented.
