Beirut: Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has warned Israel against encroaching on Lebanon’s territorial waters and stealing its oil and gas reserves. In a televised speech on Tuesday to mark the fifth anniversary of Hezbollah victory against Israel in the July 2006 war, Nasrallah warned that the resistance movement will confront any aggressive attempt by Tel Aviv to carry out oil and gas exploration in the Lebanese territorial waters.
Hezbollah secretary general warned that any damage to Lebanon’s future oil facilities will be retaliated.
“Those who harm our installations will have their own installations harmed,” he warned. “We warn Israel not to touch this area or try to steal Lebanon’s resources.”
Nasrallah said that the reserves could provide Lebanon with a “golden opportunity” to rebuild its economy.
Hezbollah’s secretary general stressed that any possible war against Lebanon will have disastrous consequences for Israel.
Enemy is aware of the reality that the Lebanese resistance movement is today stronger than ever, Nasrallah stated.
He also noted that billions of dollars are being spent on tarnishing Hezbollah’s image, because Israel did not achieve its aims during its war against Lebanon.
