Middle East - SOS: Hezbollah and Iran threaten to blow up Israel!

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah challenges Israel, saying that the Lebanese terrorist group is not afraid of fighting and warns that he fears war will break out.

Nasrallah said his organization is not deterred and will take action, mockingly pointing to a US warship that left the area and claiming that Israel is fighting to win in Gaza, reported.

He reported that Hezbollah's bombing of Israel that began on October 8 had prevented a wider bombing campaign by Israel in Gaza, warning that there would be no "ceilings" and "rules" in his group's fighting if Israel launched a war in Lebanon.

Nasrallah earlier in his speech had referred to "all those martyrs, from Gaza, the West Bank, Lebanon and Iraq, who fell on the road to Jerusalem", stood on the Aruri assassination and the attack in Iran near the grave of Qassem Soleimani, and also made glowing references to the Yemeni Houthis.

On the Aruri assassination, the leader of Lebanese Hezbollah stressed that it was a 'dangerous act' which would not go unpunished.


It accused Israel of being behind the killing of Hamas' No. 2 fugitive Al-Arouri in a Beirut suburb a day earlier, calling it "a major, dangerous crime that we cannot remain silent about".
Addressing Israeli Defense Minister Joav Galad, Hassan Nasrallah says Israel "will not succeed in achieving the goals of the war."

He falsely claims that Israel is hiding thousands of victims of Hezbollah attacks on the northern border and that "hundreds of thousands" have fled the country since October 7.

According to Nasrallah, Israel has already suffered a strategic defeat because of its policy in Gaza after 7 October and more broadly in the region. Finally, he gave his audience an appointment for Friday after prayers, where he will make further announcements.

Ayatollah Khamenei threatens a tough response after double explosion kills 103

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned Thursday of a "tough response" to the double explosion, described as a terrorist attack by officials and state media, which killed at least 103 people. The bloody explosions occurred near the grave of General Qasem Suleimani on the day of the fourth anniversary of his death.

"The evil criminals and enemies of the Iranian nation have once again caused destruction and turned a large number of our fellow citizens in Kerman into martyrs," said the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic. "There will be a harsh response to this disaster, God willing," he asserted.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi also condemned the double bombing, denouncing it as a "cowardly" and "despicable" act.

"There is no doubt that the perpetrators of this cowardly act will soon be identified and punished for their heinous act by the relevant security and law enforcement forces," the Iranian president said.

The "pandemonium box" opened in the Middle East

The inescapable fact is that the more Israel strikes Hamas targets abroad, the harder it will be for decision-makers in Qatar, Turkey and Lebanon to ignore the war in Gaza.

Now the risk of the war in Gaza spreading to neighbouring states seems all too likely, following the assassination of Al-Arouri, and the deadly bombing in Iran near the grave of Suleimani, the Revolutionary Guards general assassinated by an American drone, during a memorial service for his death.

Our assessment is that Pandora's box is open, as we believe that Hezbollah will declare war on Israel in the next few hours or days, with Iran very close to following suit.
