Sayyed Nasrallah: ‘We Have Fateh Missile since 2006, Ready to Enter Beyond the Galilee’
Hizbullah Sectary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah Chief revealed that the Islamic Resistance has all kinds of weapons, that the “Israeli” may or may not think of.”
And in a strong warning to the “Israeli” enemy, Sayyed Nasrallah sent a clear message, “we are ready to liberate Galilee and what is beyond the Galilee.”
His Eminence’s declaration came in a long interview with al-Maydeen channel, conducted by its director Ghassan Ben Jeddo.
In the interview that lasted for three hours, the Resistance Leader pointed out to important positions, and provided important data, specifically in the conflict between the resistance and “Israel”.
“Israel” Be Ready
“We have had the Fateh-110 missile since 2006 and it has become outdated compared to what we have now,” said His Eminence.
“What the resistance has in its possession qualifies it for engaging in any confrontation that the “Israelis” might think of,” he added.
Warning Tel Aviv, the Resistance leader highlighted that the Zionist entity would be totally mistaken if it was betting that “the resistance has weakened” or that its “capabilities, readiness, assets and determination have waned” due to participation in the Syrian war.
“It will find out that counting on these calculations will lead to foolishness rather than a major mistake,” Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized.
He pointed out, however, that “the “Israelis” are currently incapable of achieving a decisive and clear victory in any possible war on Lebanon.”
Noting that the Resistance does not want a war and that “it is not seeking it,” His Eminence underlined that his group maintains its “preparedness.”
“Anything that we might be obliged to do in any future war … anything that might be needed to win the coming war; we must be ready and prepared for it. The Resistance’s military fronts must be ready,” added his Eminence.
In parallel, Sayyed Nasrallah a grave warning to “Israel”, by addressing the Resistance men: “When the leadership of the resistance asks you to enter into the Galilee, this means the resistance must be ready to enter into the Galilee and areas beyond Galilee.”
He also noted that Hizbullah men stand ready to liberate the northern Occupied Palestinian region in any future confrontation.
“As a resistance, we are stronger than ever, and God willing we will become stronger than we are now,” he added.
He said that Hizbullah has “all sorts of arms that can come to mind.”
On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah discussed some aspects of the discovery of “Israeli” agents within Hizbullah ranks. In parallel, he corrected a lot of false rumors and leaks that have accompanied this case.
Separately, he confirmed that one of the party’s officials busted five months ago was found to be working with “Israeli” and US intelligence.
“He was responsible for one department inside one of the security units of Hizbullah,” His Eminence said, explaining that the unit was responsible for work of a “sensitive nature.”
However, Sayyed Nasrallah said the official’s importance and status had been exaggerated by the media, adding that he did not hold a very high rank.
“He confessed to everything and to what extent he collaborated with “Israel”,” he said.
“After 32 years of resistance … and with the expansion of Hizbullah’s structure horizontally and vertically, this is normal,” he said.
“We should not treat it as normal, but it is.”
His Eminence also spoke about the situation in Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, Iran and Bahrain.
Axis of Resistance, Syria
On the “Israeli” aggressions against Syria, Sayyed Nasrallah described the “Israeli” air raids as “an attack against the entire axis of resistance.”
“The recurrent strikes on various targets inside Syria are a major violation, and we consider any strike on targets in Syria as an attack against the entire axis of resistance, not only against Syria.”
Asked whether the axis of resistance might take a decision to retaliate against “Israel’s” raids, His Eminence clarified, “Yes, such a decision could be taken … This axis has the ability to respond.”
“This is something open that might happen at any given time,” he added.
Sayyed Nasrallah noted that “no one has given a commitment that the attacks against Syria will remain without a response.”
“This is the right of the axis of resistance and it is not Syria’s right exclusively,” he added.
“When will this right be practiced? This depends on certain criterion that will be taken into consideration,” he explained.
In response to a question, the Secretary-General underlined that Hizbullah “does not have resistance formations” at the Syrian Golan Heights that are occupied by “Israel”.
“We’re ready to offer help and assistance, but the issue has not been raised until the moment,” he added.
As for Hizbullah’s relations with the Palestinian groups, Sayyed Nasrallah elaborated “there might come a day when all resistance movements fight together against the enemy and we want strategic relations with everyone, topped by Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.”
Asked about the relation with Hamas, Sayyed Nasrallah mentioned: “The Palestinian group had demonstrated a will to strengthen its bonds with Iran and Hizbullah.”
On another level, His Eminence refused any claim that the resistance members were “exhausted” in Syria.
“Contrary to what the enemy thinks,” Sayyed Nasrallah warned, “the resistance is fully ready in southern [Lebanon], and is ready to face any possibility.”
No Solution without Al-Assad
On the Syrian political front, Hizbullah’s Secretary-General stressed that “the notion that the Syrian regime can be ousted militarily has ended.”
“The Syrian armed groups that are linked to the so-called Coalition or Saudi Arabia are on the path of demise,” he noted, emphasizing that “any solution in Syria would be impossible without President Bashar al-Assad.”
Saudi Arabia’s role in Syria has dwarfed with the rise of “ISIL” and the Nusra Front, Nasrallah added, saying that the two factions became too strong to handle and now threaten the kingdom.
He said Turkey had strong military bonds with “ISIL”, and if it decides to take the political solution route, the conflict would be easier to resolve.
His Eminence revealed that he has met top Syrian opposition official Haytham Manna in a bid to help end the four-year-old war in neighboring Syria.
“I had already met, besides Syrian dissident Haytham Manna, a number of other opposition [officials] in an effort to contribute to a political solution to the Syrian crisis,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
His Eminence revealed that a certain country involved in the Syria crisis has informed Russia of its readiness to accept any deal to end the conflict, “including the survival of the regime,” provided that Syrian President Bashar Assad is removed from power.”
That country does not mind that al-Assad be succeeded by a new president from the same Alawite sect.
On the internal Lebanese arena, Sayyed Nasrallah also tackled the ongoing dialogue between Hizbullah and the Future as well as the prospects for this dialogue.
Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Future chief ex-PM Saad Hariri gave the green light to the dialogue between his movement’s representatives and Hizbullah despite the objection of several officials in his party.
“The dialogue has so far limited sectarian tension,” His Eminence said. Its results appeared following the suicide bombing that rocked the northern city of Tripoli over the weekend.
“All parties exercised a high level of self-restraint,” he said, adding “had there not been for the dialogue, the reaction would have been different.”
“Imagine if the two aggressive suicide bombings against our people in Jabal Mohsen happened during a different climate,” he said.
“Tripoli and the region would have been set ablaze.”
“Our experience with the Progressive Socialist Party is not bad and it succeeds; we cooperate in Lebanon but disagree on Syria,” he said, hinting the same could be done with the Future Movement.
Hizbullah Secretary General reiterated his support for his ally Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun, saying he should be Lebanon’s next president.
Any talk on the presidential election must be with the general [Aoun],” Sayyed Nasrallah stressed.
Sayyed Nasrallah: ‘Hezbollah Ready to Invade Galilee, beyond Galilee’
Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah asserted that the Islamic Resistance is ready to invade Galilee and the Israeli settlements which lie beyond Galilee during any upcoming war against the Zionist entity.
During an exclusive interview with Al-Mayadeen TV Network broadcast live on Al-Manar Channel, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that the Resistance will not resort only to the missiles to defend Lebanon, so it prepared its fighters to be able to invade Galilee in case their leadership ordered them. “When the resistance leadership… asks you (fighters)… to enter into Galilee, that means the resistance must be ready to enter into Galilee and to go even beyond the Galilee.”
Stronger Than Ever Before
Hezbollah Secretary General said that despite Hezbollah current preoccupations, it has accumulated and sustained its military power, adding that the Israeli enemy has acknowledged that the party is gaining huge military experiences from various battlefields.
Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that the resistance has every conceivable type of weapon, revealing that it has possessed Fateh 110 missiles since 2006 war.
“The resistance also has the weaponry that is much more sophisticated.”
Hezbollah Secretary General said that the party follows a permanent plan to develop its abilities and that in 2015 the resistance is stronger than ever before.
His eminence noted, “We do not limit our human and military capabilities.”
Hezbollah leader stressed that the Resistance cannot tolerate the Israeli assaults, adding that the party considers that the terrestrial, marine and aerial violations besides the assassinations and the assault as red lines which cannot be surpassed by the Zionists.
Sayyed Nasrallah noted that Hezbollah will respond to any Israeli violation in the way that he finds suitable.”The repeated bombings that struck several targets in Syria are a major violation, and we consider that any strike against Syria is a strike against the whole of the resistance axis, not just against Syria.”
However, he added that the resistance does not compel itself to respond in a manner that may serve the Zionist interests.
Sayyed Nasrallah clarified that the Resistance’s operation against the Zionist occupation troops on Shebaa Farms in 2014 responded to the Israeli deliberate murder of Hezbollah fighter who was dismantling a Zionist surveillance device.
Concerning the Israeli recurrent air raids against targets in Syria, Sayyed Nasrallah said that all the axis of resistance is concerned with responding to the attacks, stressing that the response may take place at any time.
“Yes, such a decision could be taken. This is something open that might happen at any given time. This axis has the ability to respond.”
“No one has given a commitment that the attacks against Syria will remain without a response.This is the right of the axis of resistance and it is not Syria’s right exclusively,” he added. “When will this right be practiced? This depends on certain criteria that will be taken into consideration,” His eminence said.
Sayyed Nasrallah revealed that the Israeli air raids were part of the militants’ plan to attack the Syrian army, pointing to the communication between the Israeli military and the terrorist groups in Golan and Quneitra.
Hezbollah Secretary General said that the party does not deploy military units on Golan Heights, yet that it is ready to assist the public resistance against the Israeli occupation in the area.
“The Zionist entity is no longer able to achieve any military victory in Lebanon after its failure in its recent war on Gaza,” Sayyed Nasrallah underscored, “I do not eliminate the possibility of a war with the Zionist entity, yet ‘Israel’ does not launch a war if it is not sure of being able to achieve victory.”
Spy Issue Highly Exaggerated
Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted that the US-Zionist security violation of Hezbollah was highly exaggerated by media, revealing that Hezbollah detected a spy who worked in favor of the Israeli enemy but did not have any relation with the military structure of the resistance and that he was not of a high rank in the party’s security apparatus. “We busted a Hezbollah official who was recruited by the US intelligence and subsequently the Israeli intelligence, but the issue has been greatly exaggerated,” he said.
“He was never in charge of my protection and had never come close to any Hezbullah missile unit. He had nothing to do with the entire military structure of the resistance,” Sayyed Nasrallah indicated.
“Infiltrations are part of the war between us and Israel and part of the battle’s losses and we must expect things of this kind,” he added.
His eminence added that social environment of the resistance does not embrace spy work in favor of the enemy, noting that Hezbollah deals with such violations very seriously. “The collaborator’s family was responsible for informing the party about their son’s actions.”
“He confessed to everything and to what extent he collaborated with Israel,” said Sayyed Nasrallah. “After 32 years of resistance … and with the expansion of Hezbollah’s structure horizontally and vertically, this is normal,” he said. “We should not treat it as normal, but it is.”
“As the Israeli security violation is serious, Hezbollah achievement of detecting the violation must be hailed.”
Asked about some spies from regional Arab countries, His eminence said “individuals working for Arab intelligence agencies have tried to approach officials in the party but they were busted.”
“We discovered during the 2006 war that some Arab security agencies had obtained information about the party and passed them on to the Israelis.”
On the relations with Palestinian factions, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “Hezbollah has not halted communication with the Palestinian resistance factions, and Hamas is trying to reset its relation with the axis of resistance.””We will try to promote these relations in order to fight the Zionist enemy together.”
Commenting on the Syrian-Iraqi scene, Hezbollah Secretary General pointed out that the militant groups are unable to defeat the regular army, adding that dethroning President Bashar Assad can no longer be achieved.
“The Syrian opposition does not have any problem to share President Assad in ruling the country, but the regional intervention and pressure ban this process.”
Stressing that any political solution in Syria must include mainly President Assad, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the regular army controls most of the Syrian territories and that ISIL, Nusra Front and the so-called Free Syrian Army hold the rest.
Saudi Arabia’s battlefield influence turned to be so meager after the Kingdom committed a major mistake by implementing the Afghani pattern in Syria, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out.
Hezbollah Secretary General confirmed that Turkey funds and supports ISIL and Nusra that obtain battlefield facilities from the government in Ankara, but he also mentioned the Turkish-Iraqi relations may improve with the advent of the new government in Baghdad.
Sayyed Nasrallah asserted that the International Coalition’s air raids against ISIL do not aim at eradicating the terrorist group as the United States is not concerned with achieving this goal on present.
“The Americans aim only at containing ISIL having military bases in Iraq.”
Hezbollah SG pointed out that the Iraqis themselves managed to stop ISIL attack on their various cities with the help of their Iranian brethren.
His eminence clarified that the US administration is no longer concerned with excluding President Assad from the political solution in Syria.
Sayyed Nasrallah asserted that Hezbollah considers that President Assad can guarantee the implementation of any political solution in Syria.
“The card of ISIL has been played and exhausted and the terrorist group cannot change the formula. ISIL started to lose its popular incubation in Iraq after massacred even the Muslim Sunnis.”
On Bahrain, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the opposition expressed its readiness to reach a political solution with the regime, yet that Saudi Arabia rejected all the regional mediations to end crisis, insisting on ending the peaceful revolution.
“The relation between Hezbollah and the Yemen’s Ansarullah is political, not military,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, “The party and Iran were not involved in the recent developments in Yemen.”
“What happened in Yemen is related exclusively to Ansarullah and its public; however, Hezbollah and Iran did not contribute to the recent developments in that country.”
Hezbollah SG considered that a plot was set to subdue Ansarullah which suffered a threat of elimination, so the group reacted.
Welcoming Egypt’s return to play its strategic role in the region, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Hezbollah supports any Egyptian initiative to end the Syrian crisis.
“Hezbollah has endeavored to communicate with Muslim Brotherhood that has always refrained from following this track and even blocked the Iranian initiatives to promote the mutual relations during Mursi’s reign.”
Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that Iran enjoys prosperous conditions in spite of the Western pressures, adding that the countries who are trying to challenge the Islamic Republic through the nuclear file will collapse and that it will emerge victorious.
Domestically, Sayyed Nasrallah said that he is very optimistic about Hezbollah-Mustaqbal dialogue in order to reach a written agreement, adding that it aims at easing the tensions, activating the governmental efficiency and fighting terrorism which targets everyone across the country.
“Its results appeared following the suicide bombing that rocked the northern city of Tripoli over the weekend. All parties exercised a high level of self-restraint,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding “had it not been for the dialogue, the reaction would have been different.”
“Hezbollah supports any dialogue among the Lebanese political factions to settle the complicated issues, including the presidential elections, despite the attempts of the ‘hawks’ to frustrate this trend in the country,” he added.
His eminence also reiterated the party’s support for the Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun, saying he should be Lebanon’s next president.
Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah concluded that the social environment of the resistance supports all its strategic decisions, including the intervention in Syria war.
