A senior Hezbollah figure announced that the party had a “strategic weapon”, which Israel could not prevent it from obtaining. The official did not specify the nature of the weapon.
The party has raised the possibility of using its military arsenal to prevent Israel from extracting oil and gas from the Mediterranean before allowing Lebanon to explore it.
Last month, Hezbollah threatened to hit Israeli offshore platforms if Lebanon could not explore for its oil and gas.
Last week, the party’s military media released a video of Israeli ships in the disputed gas field, warning of ‘playing with time’, underscoring its threat of military escalation amid demarcation talks. the sea border.
Hezbollah Executive Council chief Sayyid Hashem Safieddin says Israel’s attempts to prevent the resistance from obtaining strategic weapons have failed, stressing that the resistance has obtained these weapons and there is nothing the enemy can do to dissuade her.
Safieddine called on his supporters not to be swayed by media campaigns that want to undermine the party’s capabilities, adding, “If they target our weapons and capabilities, we need to build our strength and ability” to get weapons.
The official explained that when Israel lost hope of Lebanon giving up its rights, it would be forced to retreat.
“Our strategy must be to progress. After all this experience, these victories and these achievements, none of us should ever think of retreating.”
The party believes its threat to use force against Israeli installations has again moved the border demarcation negotiations.
For his part, the leader of the Loyalty to the Resistance parliamentary bloc, Mohammad Raad, stressed that Lebanon insists on obtaining its exclusive maritime rights.
Raad said Israel claimed Europe needed the gas and the opportunity suited them to extract it from occupied waters, denying Lebanon’s rights to demarcate its maritime borders and gas extraction.
The lawmaker indicated that four drones were enough to change the situation, pushed the United States to send an envoy and is now ready to respond to the demands of the Lebanese.
Raad stressed that Lebanese officials agree on a unified position and that the drones support the official Lebanese position, adding that the party can demonstrate its strength at this time, leading to positive developments.
He indicated that based on previous experiences, “we must not depend on those who have wronged us”, despite all the media reports of positive developments and concessions in the interest of Lebanon on the basis of the official position supported by the resistance.
Raad said the party would remain ready to deal with all options until the deal is finalized.
Hezbollah has raised the possibility of waging war on Israel, a rhetoric repeated by its officials in recent days.
Hezbollah Central Council member Sheikh Hassan al-Baghdadi says if there is hope in Lebanon’s gas and oil, it is through this equation that made the enemy lose his ability to maneuver, placing him between two options.
Baghdadi explained that the enemy must either accept Lebanon’s legitimate demand for demarcation and gas exploration or go to war.
He believes that Israel does not want war, especially after the July 2006 war victory, warning that the results of any “rash adventure” will be different on different levels and will have disastrous consequences.
