[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]After more than 2 months of silence, during which the border-crossing tunnels from Lebanon to Israel were discovered, Hassan Nasrallah had finally spoken to the media in a lengthily interview with the – Hezbollah affiliated – AL Mayadeen media outlet. Nasrallah touched in his 3 hours interview on multiple subjects, most significant of which to Israel were the following:
(BTW – this time we decided to let Nasrallah speak for himself. No interpretation from our side. Needless to say more)
The border-crossing tunnels:
Nasrallah made it clear that he will not say in any way that Hezbollah is responsible for the tunnels and added that Israel’s claims have no proof. Nevertheless, he stated that there are tunnels that had been dug before UNSCR 1701, and there are others that were dug afterwards. He added that Israel hadn’t found all the tunnels.
Hezbollah’s “Galilee File”
Nasrallah stressed that if Hezbollah wants to invade the Galilee, it will do so through the border itself and will not need the tunnels – it will do so with high pressure and overcrowding the border.
Nasrallah verified the claims that in state of war, Hezbollah can invade the Galilee. Moreover, he emphasized that Hezbollah have had the ability to do so for years. Nasrallah added that the exposure of the tunnels does not affect the Galilee portfolio plan.
Nasrallah claimed that at first, Hezbollah had only missiles ranging 20 km (12.4 miles) and that now it has missiles that can reach Tel Aviv (!). He added: “The residents of Tel Aviv will not sit down to drink Tea, while the fighting takes place only in the border areas, this war will be throughout the entire country”.
Nasrallah enumerates several strategic targets that could be attacked, including the IDF Headquarters (The Kirya), and Air Force bases. Nasrallah noted that Hezbollah possess accurate missiles in large and sufficient numbers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8me1_jvBxvg&t=427s”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
