During a televised speech on the occasion of the 40th day of Imam Hussein (leader revered by Shiite Muslims), the head of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance stressed that Israel’s exploitation of the Karish field cannot be allowed before Lebanon gets its demands.
Nasrallah pointed out that ‘we gave a real chance for negotiations with the aim of extracting gas from Lebanon and we are not looking for any trouble’.
The top Hizbullah figure assured that, despite not being part of the talks on the demarcation of maritime borders with Tel Aviv, ‘the eyes and missiles of the Resistance are on Karish’.
He emphasized that, if confrontation is imposed it will be absolutely inevitable, as Israelis, Americans and others have enough data about the seriousness of the Resistance and ‘that they are not joking about the matter’.
Addressing the local scenario, Nasrallah expressed hope in the formation of the new government and stressed the need to make concessions and fulfill the presidential elections on their constitutional date.
The Hizbullah secretary general pointed out that the country’s next president must have the broadest possible base, politically and popularly, to fulfill his legal and constitutional role.
In the regional arena, the Hizbulah leader praised the reordering of relations between the Palestinian Hamas movement and Syria, calling it a solid position and the right step in strengthening the resistance forces and confronting the occupation.
