The Secretary General of Lebanon's Hezbollah, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, issued a warning to Israel during a recent speech. He cautioned that if Israel were to engage in any further acts of aggression against Lebanon, particularly concerning its oil and gas resources, he would retaliate by bringing Israel back to a primitive state resembling the Stone Age. This statement was made on the 17th anniversary of the 33-day war.
Hassan Nasrallah made a strong and direct threat towards Israel, stating that he would bring them back to the Stone Age. This threat has caused significant impact in the Hebrew media, with the Ma'ariv newspaper specifically highlighting the exchange between the Secretary General and Israel's Minister of War, Yoav Gallant, who had previously issued threats against Lebanon.
Israel's Channel 13 TV network acknowledged that the Secretary General of Lebanon's Hezbollah continues to demonstrate his understanding of Israel's political landscape. In his recent remarks, he emphasized that the Israeli army is currently facing its most challenging situation in history, primarily due to internal divisions.
The Yedioth Aharonot newspaper also highlighted the internal situation of Israel in relation to the recent statements made by the Secretary General of Hezbollah. According to the newspaper, the Secretary General claimed that the Israeli army has not achieved significant success and is not regarded as a formidable force. He specifically emphasized that the only notable achievements of the Israeli army were in the realm of aerial operations.
Continuing with the report, it is mentioned that the Israeli army is currently facing a critical situation due to internal divisions. This concern has been raised by various high-ranking officials, including the Prime Minister, the Chief of the Joint Staff of the Army, and the Commander of the Air Force in recent days.
In recent years, the growing military strength of Lebanon's Hezbollah has garnered significant attention from Israeli, regional, and international media. Particularly, the advancements in missile and drone capabilities have been the focal point of discussions and analysis.
The Jerusalem Post website, in a report on Hezbollah's drones, acknowledges that the group possesses the capability to construct and deploy these unmanned aerial vehicles.
