'Israel' trying to buy time, Hezbollah firm in its threats: Al Rai
Kuwaiti newspaper Al Rai reveals that a Gulf state informed Hezbollah officials about "Israel's" approval of Lebanon's demands regarding the maritime border demarcation.
Informed sources told the Kuwaiti newspaper, Al Rai, that a Gulf state envoy visited Hezbollah officials, conveying a message that "Israel" agreed to all of Lebanon's demands and that it does not want war, requesting that it be given some time to complete the Israeli elections.
The sources explained to the newspaper that the Arab envoy pointed out that any decision the Israeli occupation takes before the elections will contribute to raising Benjamin Netanyahu's shares and chances of returning to power, after which "Israel will not be making any concessions and thus bringing the situation back to square one, with the possibility of war rising."
Al Rai underlined that Hezbollah's response was firm, indicating that the Israeli elections are of no concern to the Resistance party and stressing that the identity of the next Israeli prime minister will not change anything about Hezbollah's warnings.
The newspaper added that Hezbollah's announced deadline stands and the Resistance is determined to implement its threats against "Israel" more than ever.
The Kuwaiti newspaper pointed out that some of the leaders of Hezbollah consider that the probability of war has decreased from 50% to 40%, but it is still present depending on the Israeli response to the demands to complete the border demarcation negotiations and begin the drilling process by the Lebanese side. Otherwise, Hezbollah will embark on its snowball-effect response against drilling ships based on an equation that says: Either everyone benefits from energy or no one does.
Al Rai reported that Israeli security officials said that Hezbollah was able to impose this equation announced by its Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and to enforce a new deterrence equation, declaring for the first time its intention to start the war, imposing the timing and brandishing the deterrent weapon it will use.
The Israeli officials said this situation is a first and has never happened since the establishment of Hezbollah in 1982, as "Israel" was the side that decided the timing of the war and considered itself the strongest in the region that possesses deterrence power, including nuclear power.
It is noteworthy that the military media unit of the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon had published a video that displayed the coordinates of the Israeli occupation's gas rigs off the coasts of occupied Palestine in a clear message to "Tel Aviv".
The video displayed footage of the drillships and the floating production units alongside information pertaining to the specifics of their geolocation, giving their coordinates and information regarding the origin and details of the ships at sea based on the flags they bear. Moreover, the video displayed the exact distance of each ship from Lebanese shores.
The video was entitled: "[You are] in our crosshair... stalling is not beneficial."
Israeli media said the video was addressed particularly to the Israelis and that it reinforces the threats that Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has repeatedly launched in recent weeks around the Karish rig.
During an exclusive interview for Al Mayadeen TV on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance movement Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said there were no Israeli targets in the sea or land out of the reach of the Resistance's precision missiles.
