'Israel' taking Sayyed Nasrallah's threats seriously: Israeli media
Israeli media reports that "Tel Aviv" is taking Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's threats seriously as the IOF is constantly raising its level of alert.
The Israeli military and security apparatuses are taking Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's threats seriously, Israeli Channel 12 said Wednesday, noting that the Israeli occupation forces are raising their level of alert.
"These are not the first threats that Nasrallah makes. But this time, he is specifying the time and making clear cut conditions regarding the start of the extraction of gas from the Karish gas field," the Israeli TV channel said.
"There are more and more forces and more and more reconnaissance operations, as well as an increase in preparedness in the region - something the eyes can't see. You do not see the soldiers in specific places, and you do not see more Navy vessels, but yes. There is more preparedness on all levels," Channel 12 added.
In terms of the letters sent through official channels, the Israeli TV channel said, "through the United Nations and the Lebanese army to the Lebanese government, Israel is clarifying that it will not allow the incident to go without a response, i.e., threats against an Israeli economic and strategic facility belonging to it cannot pass peacefully."
"Nasrallah wants to achieve this before September, the date for when the extraction of oil from [the Karish] rig starts," it continued.
The Israeli occupation forces over the past few months have been simulating various scenarios, including a missile attack on several targets in "Israel's" maritime economic zone, Israeli media reported on Tuesday, citing senior security sources.
The sources made the revelations Tuesday morning, following statements from Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, who warned the Israeli occupation against committing any provocations against Lebanon, saying there were no Israeli targets in the sea or on land that are out of the reach of the resistance's precision missiles.
"The security and military establishment in Israel raised the level of alert and preparedness in light of the issues and stalling of negotiations between Lebanon and Israel regarding the demarcation of the maritime borders, as well as accessing the Karish gas field and extracting oil from it in September," Israeli media said.
Israeli occupation Reserve Major General Amos Gilad called on "Tel Aviv" to take Sayyed Nasrallah's threats made against the Israeli occupation on Monday seriously.
"Nasrallah's threats must be taken seriously, and [the Israeli occupation forces] must prepare," Gilad told Israeli public broadcaster KAN. "If they attack the Karish rig or any other rig, that will definitely lead to a confrontation that can have many dimensions."
Warning the Israeli occupation against committing any provocations against Lebanon, Sayyed Nasrallah said there were no Israeli targets in the sea or land out of the reach of the Resistance's precision missiles.
Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that the Israeli occupation realized, through the July war, that confrontation with the resistance was dangerous and that the resistance's capabilities were much more than just confrontations at the border.
"Since 2006, the enemy does not dare take any action against Lebanon," the Resistance leader said, noting that "Tel Aviv" was only resorting to run-of-the-mill operations that leave no mark in Lebanon.
