Operation “Zari’t” proved that the balance of terror still exists. The Developments in the region will not give Israel a free hand in Lebanon yet again.

Asked in his weekly seminar about the explosion that murdered Lebanese civilians and the operation that targeted enemy soldiers inside the Israeli borders, and about whether the events will continue to head in this direction, the religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah said:

It has become quite evident that the enemy is trying to benefit from the situation in the region, especially that it has discovered that neither the threats the US made nor the enemy’s atrocities, which did not stop even in the Eid, had stopped the pressure the Intifada exerts on it.

Thus, the enemy’s officials are trying to suggest to the Israeli society that they can make use of the developments in a way that serves their interests and enables them to continue their aggression against those who constitute a threat to their security in Palestine and Lebanon . In this context, the explosion that targeted Lebanese civilians is but an attempt of the “Mossad” to return to the Lebanese internal front, to re-polish their image which has been greatly distorted by the Resistance, during the occupation and even after it.

On the other hand, the reaction, represented by the operation that targeted Israeli soldiers inside the Israeli borders, have proved yet again that the enemy does not have a big room for man maneuvering anymore. He can no longer hit without being hit back even inside Palestine . All this would remind him that the balance of terror still exists. And that the coming developments will not change its consequences or give Israel a free hand… Israel will have to pay the price for every move it takes to distort Internal Lebanese security whether directly or indirectly.

Furthermore, these developments have proven once again that Israel does not exclude any Lebanese group from its aggression and schemes. It wants to destabilize the internal Lebanese unity, especially that of the people and the government, which made Israel , think twice before committing any aggression against Lebanon .

We still believe that Israel does not have the freedom in expanding its military aggression in Lebanon no matter how strong its threats may become.

Nevertheless, this does not mean that Israel is not planning to destabilize Lebanon by various security and intelligence means. To confront this, we have to uncover the enemy’s plots and discover the agents it has planted them in various places.

It is not enough to protect the country politically and economically; the government should also provide the security protection the country needs as it faces the Zionist plots and preparations.
