The genie is out of the bottle in Lebanon, and it isn’t clear whether it’ll ever go back in. One thing’s for certain, though: Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah is sweating bullets.
As a result of IDF airstrikes against its military bases in Syria, Iran has been forced to transfer its anti-Israel assets to Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon. This effort, involving upgrading hundreds of thousands of missiles, uses nefarious method and may even involve a more imminent nuclear threat than previously thought.
Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech on Friday that “if the Lebanese Higher Defense Council makes an official decision that some gas and oil rigs in the Palestinian sea—a sea plundered by Israel, the enemy entity—must not operate, I promise you that within a few hours, they will not operate anymore.”
