Hassan Fadlallah, a Shia Lebanese lawmaker and member of the terrorist organization Hezbollah, admitted Monday that the organization’s Secretary General, Hassan Nasrallah, is “actively monitoring the developing situation” Southern Lebanon and is responsible for “supervising and orchestrating” the multiple cross-border attacks against Israel as it fights off the terrorist organization Hamas from the Gaza Strip.
Speaking to the Hezbollah-controlled Al-Mayadeen media outlet, Fadlallah said that the Sheikh was carefully following the developments of the fighting and supervising and managing the situation through his “direct communication with the field commanders of the resistance.”
“The resistance is prepared for any eventuality and any scenario,” the Fadlallah stressed, adding that Nasrallah’s decision not to appear in the public media is a “strategic choice based on wisdom and courage.”
Fadlallah stated that at the necessary time, Nasrallah would appear to address the media and Hezbollah supporters. The Hezbollah official boasted about Hezbollah’s powerful 100,000-armed ground forces against Israel.
“Our resistance is well aware of the path it has selected to protect its homeland, with Lebanon’s welfare and its people being the utmost concern,” he highlighted. Hezbollah’s top priority is “to protect the homeland for the Lebanese people,” Fadlallah said.
Fadlallah’s comments came as the terrorist organization’s Deputy Chief, Naim Qassem, stated that Lebanon would join the fight “when the time comes for action.” Qassem said this while speaking at a rally where hundreds of terrorist figures gathered in solidarity, waving Hamas and Hezbollah flags and chanting “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.”
“Hezbollah knows its duties perfectly well,” Qassem said. “We are prepared and ready, fully ready, and we are following developments moment by moment.”
Since the fighting occurred on Oct. 7, around 28 Hezbollah terrorist fighters have died trying to ambush Israeli soldiers on the Northern border and destroy Israeli surveillance equipment.
Despite the successes of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in stopping Hezbollah attacks on the Northern Border, Israeli and American officials are concerned that the Iranian-backed proxy will escalate its attacks against the Jewish state and use its massive rockets arsenal to destroy Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
The Biden administration has called on Hezbollah and its sponsor, the Islamic Republic of Iran, not to get involved in the war.
In response to the President’s statements, top officials from the Islamic Republic of Iran have met with Nasrallah and other Hezbollah officials in Lebanon, threatening to unleash their proxies against Israeli and American forces in the region.
As tensions in the Middle East continue to escalate, American officials at home are worried that Hezbollah might activate its cells in Latin America, Europe, and the United States.
A recent Customs and Border Protection (CBP) memo warned staff of the risk of Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist fighters attempting to enter the U.S. through the unprotected US-Southern border with Mexico.
Since its inception, Hezbollah has vowed to wipe out the Jewish state from existence, working with Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) to attack Israeli civilians and soldiers.
