The head of the parliamentary bloc of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says the Tel Aviv regime is extremely afraid of the expanding capabilities of his group.
“Despite all unfolding developments, the Israeli enemy seems terrified of the growing capabilities of Hezbollah. It is fairly obvious that Israel will not be able to escape this equation of “balance of terror,” Mohammad Raad said in an interview with the Beirut-based and pro-Hezbollah al-Nour radio station on Monday.
He added that the fundamental task of Hezbollah following the liberation of southern Lebanon from Israel’s occupation in 2000 is to safeguard its values.
“The resilience of Hezbollah in the face of such intense pressures is itself a triumph. The challenge has swollen and taken a wide range of forms, targeting the resistance movement and exerting pressure on it through financial blockade in a bid to dry up resources needed to create enough force to confront potential risks posed by the enemy,” Raad noted.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Manar television network on April 13, Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem said his movement is fully prepared for confrontation in case the Israeli regime opts to launch any act of aggression against the Arab country.
