Hezbollah-imposed deterrence made Lebanon safest in Middle East: Media
An Israeli professor says the message that Resistance leaders want to convey was that the Axis of Resistance is "strong and united."
Israeli media cited Israeli Professor Eyal Zisser, from "Tel Aviv" University, as saying that "Lebanon has become the safest place in the Middle East" for Resistance leaders, "due to the deterrence imposed by Hezbollah."
Zisser's remarks came during an interview for the Israeli Channel 13 regarding the Saturday meeting that took place between the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, and the Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement, Ziyad Al-Nakhalah, and Deputy Head of the Political Bureau of the Hamas movement, Saleh Al-Arouri.
The Channel 13 interviewer considered that the meeting between the three sides aims to tell "Israel": "Be aware, there is daily coordination and we are proud of it."
The Israeli professor also suggested that the message that the leaders wanted to convey was that "the Axis of Resistance is strong and united," adding that "this is certainly an important message."
He explained that coordination between these leaders means that when an operation takes place in Al-Aqsa Mosque, Al-Quds, or the West Bank, the matter may slide into Gaza and perhaps into Lebanon and vice versa.
Zisser emphasized that the Resistance leaders are aware of "Israel's" weakness and what its government is going through, which prompts them to continue "challenging and provoking" the occupation, as is happening on the northern border of Palestine, and therefore, "Israel" has a reason to be concerned.
He also recalled the statement of Sayyed Nasrallah, who warned that any assassination that targets a Lebanese, Palestinian, or Iranian personnel, among others, on Lebanese soil cannot be tolerated after Israeli occupation Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to target Resistance leaders in Gaza, the West Bank, "and everywhere else."
Elsewhere, the Israeli professor considered that "Hezbollah's positioning" inside the occupied Palestinian territories, as per his claims, and "setting up tents were not possible in the past."
In their Saturday meeting, Sayyed Nasrallah, Al-Nakhalah, and Al-Arouri engaged in discussions concerning recent political developments, particularly in occupied Palestine. They also addressed the evolving situation in the occupied West Bank and the increasing activities of the Resistance while also touching upon rising Israeli threats.
According to a joint statement, the tripartite meeting affirmed the firm position of all the forces of the Axis of Resistance to face the Israeli occupation entity and its arrogance.
The three Resistance leaders highlighted the importance of continued coordinating efforts between Resistance factions and consistent follow-up on all political, security, and military developments, especially in occupied Palestine and Lebanon, as well as taking the appropriate decision in a timely manner.
