Nasrallah warns of major war in response to Israel’s threats


Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said any Israeli act of aggression against the resistance front could lead to a major war in the region, causing the “annihilation” of the regime.
The leader of the Lebanese resistance movement made the remarks in a televised address on Thursday on the occasion of the anniversary of the regime’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon, Press TV reported.
The Israeli regime pulled out its forces from the areas on May 25, 2000, after 22 years of occupation, after suffering a humiliating defeat at the hands of the resistance movement.
Addressing Tel Aviv’s threats of extensive military action, Nasrallah said, “You cannot threaten us with a large-scale war. It is rather us, who are threatening you with such warfare.” “The battlegrounds in this war will be packed with hundreds of thousands of [resistance] fighters,” since the resistance has enlisted a far greater number of forces compared to the occupying regime, the Hezbollah leader said.
“The resistance is expanding by the day and has witnessed a great [positive] change in its financial and military capability,” he added.
