  • US, Zionist entity don’t dare target Hezbollah, fear response: Top official

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem says the United States and the illegal Zionist entity do not dare attack the Lebanese resistance movement since they are aware that the group’s firm determination to respond to any act on aggression will never change.

According to Press TV, speaking on Wednesday, Sheikh Qassem stressed that Hezbollah intends to remain in a defensive position and does not want to initiate a war.

“Zionist regime Israel must understand that the battleground is not open for it,” he said, adding that any future battle will be taken to the depth of the Zionist occupied Palestine.

“If Israel draws us to a confrontation, we are ready at any moment to teach it a lesson that it will never forget,” the Hezbollah official said.

Currently, any American or Israeli attack on Hezbollah is unlikely, Sheikh Qassem predicted, adding, “They know that Hezbollah will respond to any act of aggression.”

The Hezbollah official also said that one of the problems Lebanon is grappling with is the pressure exerted by the US on the West Asian country through the imposition of various sanctions and conditions.

There are no relations between Hezbollah and Washington, no matter if Donald Trump or Joe Biden is in power in the United States, he added.
