NASRALLAH: ISRAEL IS SCARED OF WAR AND IS NOT PREPARED FOR ONE
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said that Israel is scared of another war with his Lebanese Shiite group and that the United States has placed sanctions because they have “failed in their military campaigns.”
“What the Zion-American enemy failed to obtain during the military campaigns it wants to achieve through imposing sanctions on the Syrian people, besieging the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, causing starvation in Yemen and blacklisting Hezbollah,” Nasrallah said during a televised addressed marking the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Islamic Resistance Support Association, a charity used to raise funds for the group.
Pointing to the US military’s deployment advanced THAAD missile defense system in Israel for joint exercises this past week, Nasrallah said that it was proof Israel’s inability to protect the country from Hezbollah’s missile arsenal in a future war between the two foes.
“Israel is scared of a new war,” he said. “Everyday you hear that Israel is not prepared for war in one way or another and this week you saw Israel began using the American THAAD system. The Israelis do not believe in their defense systems and are afraid, and that is why they have set up US-made defense systems. The Israeli army is afraid of war against us and they know why. We’ll break them on the battlefield. No advanced missile defense systems will help.”
