The tones are the same as a week ago. The same accusations and the same threats are directed at Israel. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah wants his voice to reach not only across the border, but also to Riyadh, where the Arab League meets.
“We will continue to put pressure on Israel until it stops, while keeping the war front open with the enemy in southern Lebanon. He adds: We have witnessed a series of threats from Netanyahu, Gantz, and Gallant: We will continue on this path.
Hence the “proud” claim: “We launch drones every day, some for defense, others for information gathering. They can reach Haifa and throughout the north: this is part of the war of attrition against Israeli air defences. He continued: “We have improved the quality and quantity of our operations by using missiles with a payload ranging between 300 and 500 kilograms and recorded the Katyusha range.” Thus, this presents an increasingly difficult challenge, even if the facts on the field do not yet follow the words.
In any case, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Galant immediately responded: “You are dragging Lebanon into a war that seems possible. You are making a series of mistakes, and those who will pay the price are, above all, Lebanese civilians. “What we do in Gaza, we can do in Beirut.” Then the same warnings came in the evening from Prime Minister Netanyahu, who called on Hezbollah to avoid what could be a “serious mistake.”
Nasrallah’s words come with the arrival of his biggest patron, Iranian President Raisi, in Riyadh. When he descends the steps of his plane, he wears the keffiyeh – the famous Palestinian head covering – around his neck. To emphasize support for the cause, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi wanted to personally participate in the Arab League summit. This is the first time for the Shiite leader of the Islamic Republic in the most important Sunni country in the region, after the collapse of relations in 2016 and the improvement of relations last March. But in the face of support for the Palestinians and accusations against Israel, even the remaining distances disappeared. Here they are facing each other, the Iranian president and the heir to the Saudi throne, Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Criticisms and analyzes point in the same direction, albeit with different tones. “Responsibility for crimes against the Palestinian people – says Salman – lies with the Israeli occupation authority,” whose continued violations of international humanitarian law he condemns. “The only way to guarantee security, peace and stability is to put an end to the settlers’ siege and settlement,” adds the prince, who until a few weeks ago seemed on the verge of joining the first group of countries that signed the “Abraham Accords.” With Israel. Raisi begins with violence: “We must kiss the hands of Hamas in order to resist against Israel.” Specifically, those hands that are still dripping with the blood of 1,200 people who were slaughtered, beheaded and burned.
He then presents the Ten Commandments that all Arab countries must respect, which provide for sanctions, an energy boycott (a proposal rejected by two moderate countries), the prosecution of the United States and Israel before the Hague Tribunal, and international inspections of Israeli nuclear plants. In this river of words everyone wanted to have their say. We heard everything, but we did not hear even a single voice of condemnation for the October 7 massacres. Turkish President Erdogan condemns the “unprecedented barbarism” in Gaza, criticizes the West for its silence and launches a proposal: an international peace conference.
