  • Israelis won’t sleep a wink if they know what Hezbollah has in store: Senior resistance official

A senior Hezbollah official has commended his group’s publication of a video showing Israeli vessels involved in offshore oil and gas industry at a disputed maritime area in the Mediterranean, stressing that Israeli regime officials will not sleep a wink if they find out about the actual extent of the Lebanese resistance movement’s military capabilities.

Sheikh Nabil Qaouk, deputy head of the executive council of Hezbollah, made the remarks at a ceremony in the southern Lebanese town of Bint Jbeil on Wednesday night.

“The video that Hezbollah released a few days ago relayed a clear message to the Israeli enemy that the resistance movement is fully prepared, and has aimed its missiles at the Karish [gas field is disputed territory] and areas beyond that,” he pointed out.

The high-ranking Hezbollah official underscored that Israeli authorities will be gripped by fear once they find out about his group’s preemptive measures against the regime’s strategic energy and military installations.

“Lebanon previously used to beg for assistance from the United States. The equation has, however, changed at present, and it is now the illegal Zionist entity that has to appeal and wait for US help in the face of Hezbollah,” Sheikh Qaouk said.

He said that Israeli head Yair Lapid has lately asked Washington to work out a quick agreement with Lebanon regarding the demarcation of maritime borders.

“The appeal stems from their (Israelis’) fear about the prowess of Hezbollah resistance movement, and the fact that the group’s secretary-general Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah is absolutely right that all of Israel’s gas fields are under threat from his group’s missiles,” Sheikh Qaouk pointed out.
