Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary-General of the Lebanese resistance organisation Hezbollah, gave a live interview to Lebanese news agency Al-Mayadeen from an undisclosed location in Lebanon, on Saturday evening.

Nasrallah mocked the Israeli failure to detect underground ‘resistance tunnels’ for up to 14 years as an “failure of Israeli intelligence,” stating that “this means the Israeli intelligence, army and security agencies and all Israeli technology in 14 years have not discovered this tunnel inside its territory.”

On the possibility of a future war with the Israeli state, Nasrallah stated that “the strategic environment has changed compared to earlier years… They say a war is dangerous and it won’t be with one front or one side, but it may open all fronts [Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Iran] and that it may have a very critical impact on the [Israeli] domestic front.”

The Lebanese resistance leader ended with a warning to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “The summary of what I want to say on this issue, as time is running out, is a message to Netanyahu: Be cautious not to exaggerate what you are doing in Syria. Miscalculations could drag the region into a war or a major confrontation.”

Well, not having been able to seize a single square meter of Israeli territory, even for a few hours after what? 37 years of Hezbollah existence isn’t really what one may call being successful 😉

At the start of the Hezb-provoked 2006 war, they had 2,000 active members in their ‘military’ branch and about 3-4k as reservists. Having ended with 2100-2300 casualties including around 750 deaths while Lebanon ost 20% of its economy within 1 month is not very successful too.

Having ordered the liquidation of your historc military commander and co-founder Badreddine after having been ordred it by Qassem Soleimani (Quds-Force) ‘coz Badreddine opposed the idea of having ISIS rushing into Syria is also YOUR failure, Mr.Nasrallah, an honour failure.

NOTE : Zarqawi hid in Iran before being smuggled to Iraq by Quds-Force and founding… ISIS! If you don’t get who is truly pulling the ISIS strings once you know this, consider a brain transplant on yourself.

Ohoh, the Erdogan administration and his MIT intelligence service are not only linked to the infamous Muslim Brotherhood but also to the… IRGC’s Quds-Force…

“the strategic environment has changed compared to earlier years”
=> For sure! With the open-secret alliance between Erdogan and Khämenei added to Tamim’s money and poison while USA is stealthy transferring the handling of the Mid-East to Russia…

Actually, from the strategic POV, do not ignore the neo-Ottoman geopolitical ambitions and Iran wanting to rebuild the Persian-Empire, both being at the same time on the brink of bankruptcy and both trying to destabilise many countries…

Thus, Mr.Nasrallah, you also seem to forget that IDF is not structured to deal with domestic issues alone but to foil an attack from all sides with all the Mid-East coming for an extermination war!

Actually, it’s by letting you the time to refine your war-plans with your allies and stockpile crazy shïtloads of rockets/missiles while your allies are trying to make Syria an arena to lead a 2 fronts (Lebanon+Syria) major attack on Israel that IDF will have to face such major conflict.

And Turkey is likely to participate too…
Looks a lot like the Biblical Armageddon (Har-Megiddo) battle with Turkey as Gog and Iran as Magog attacking Israel together…

IMHO, if Nasrallah addresses such a warning to Bibi, it’s that Bibi is doing the right thing in the interest of Israel and Iran+Hezb would end screwed while, if Bibi restraints, these will be able to come later with enough gear and manpower to win by swarming.

The best option for Bibi is to use the old carrot+stick trick on Assad which is secular and enough clever to get what’s Syria’s real interest :

“asking” Iran+Hezb to leave and cut ties with them while Syria will get Russia+USA+Israel help to contain Turkey, rebuild and also become wealthy, thanks to participation in the Levantine gas basin…

This would surely suffocate Hezb, nevertheless, letting Iran entrench in Syria is the absolute guarantee for a future major conflict and…

after 8 years of conflict against bloodthirsty bearded bigots, I have doubt about Syrians so willing to have their country used as an arena for Shia bigots jihadist wet dreams.

My 2 cents that SyADF won’t even have the time to deply the S-300s before these getting demolished by IDF. With Pantsir already having proved barely useless at intercepting IDF strikes…

This will surely make Assad desperate and to consider that believing dudes like Nasrallah is hopeless…

I could think that Israel’s intel bodies knew about them but chose to reveal them at the ‘proper time’ (subject to circumstances.) Am assuming the tunnels wasn’t on the top five list of immediate threats, and could easily be contained compared to an Iranian made missile.

The reason the tunnels were not found is because they do not exist. Israeli paranoia is at maximum levels and i’m afraid Nasrallah is openly mocking their wild goose chases all over the Lebanese border in search of things that aren’t there. This guy should be a comedian.
