Secretary general of the Hezbollah terror group, Hassan Nasrallah, rattled off a litany of threats during a recent interview with Lebanese media outlet Al-Manar, which was aired on the thirteenth anniversary of 2006’s Second Lebanon War.
As he conducted the interview, Nasrallah presented a map of Israel to the camera with dozens of identified “targets,” claiming that “the entire Israeli north is under [Hezbollah’s] fire, [including] the most strategic area, the Israeli coast.”
Nasrallah continued, “The 70‐km long Israeli coast starting from Netanya and ending by Ashdod is under [Hezbollah’s] fire, this area includes the most strategic Israeli sites,” referring explicitly to Ben Gurion airport, several arms depots, petrochemical plants, and ports in Tel Aviv and Ashdod.
Nasrallah also claimed that a war with Lebanon would “put the Israelis on the verge of vanishing.”
“Hezbollah at a minimum is capable of inflicting huge destruction on [Israel]. Our fighters have become expert and well-prepared for the invasion of the Galilee, we have several scenarios in this regards,” he maintained.
Nasrallah also scoffed at claims by Israeli officials that the IDF will “return Lebanon to the Stone Age” if Hezbollah attacks.
In addition to threatening Israel militarily, the terror leader also cast aspersions on the Trump administration’s Israel-Palestinian peace plan, claiming it is “doomed to failure.”
Finally, Nasrallah predicted that the U.S. would avoid war with Hezbollah’s overseer, Iran, due to the “high cost” such a confrontation would extract from American allies in the region, such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Israel.
