Press Shia – A member of the Association of Muslim Scholars in Lebanon stressed that that Hezbollah has gained experience and capabilities since the end of the July 2006 War and this has become a real concern for Israel.

Press Shia Agency – In an interview with Press Shia News Agency, Shaykh Suhayb Habli, a senior member of the International Union of Scholars Supporting the Islamic Resistance, referred to the latest developments in the Middle East, and said, “It’s no secret to anyone that there is a union between the Zionist entity and some Arab and Islamic countries and this has appeared to the public after years of covert action and coordination.”

“What occurred in Lebanon during the 2006 July War was clear and despite the efforts of some Gulf and Arab countries through their collusion against the Islamic Resistance [Hezbollah], the Resistance dealt a decisive blow when they won in that war,” he said. 

The Lebanese Sunni cleric added that when the former Saudi foreign minister, Saud ibn Faysal, described the Resistance as “adventurers,” he represented the viewpoint of the Persian Gulf monarchies in regard to the Resistance, but these so-called “adventurers” proved that they are capable of imposing a resounding defeat on Israel.

“The defeat of the Zionist entity has proved in several councils and several reports, including the Winograd Commission’s report, which confirmed the defeat of the Zionist entity,” he said. 

Shaykh Habli added: “As for the popular situation, everyone knows that the people on the Arab and Islamic streets are with the Resistance. The Resistance in Lebanon and in the occupied Golan Heights has been able to unite the hearts around the approach and thought of the Resistance. Therefore, there is no fear on the street, but rather these leaders are fearful but they will be thrown into the dustbin of history because the people will write the next victory.”

As for the capabilities of the Islamic Resistance to hit its targets, Shaykh Suhayb Habli said, “There is no doubt that the Resistance has accumulated expertise and capabilities since the end of the July War and is still accumulating expertise and capabilities, making it capable of increasing their power several times from the level it was during the July 2006 aggression.”

He added that the situation has become a real concern for the Zionists and the statements made by Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah about the Dimona reactor and the ammonia containers in Haifa is only a small part of what the Resistance possesses as a means of deterrence and the enemies may be surprised by the achievements of Resistance in the event of any aggression against Lebanon.

The head of the Association of Unity in Lebanon added that what which happened in Syria and through military cooperation between Russia and the Syrian Arab Army has given the Resistance and its fighters new tactical experience, which makes it highly capable of responding to any kind of ground invasion. 

Shaykh Habli stressed that the Resistance’s air and sea forces in are in a better position than they were in previous years. Hence, Israel will be in real trouble if they want to begin any military adventure against Lebanon. 

“Everyone knows that the Zionist entity is living in an internal predicament and is unable to control its internal issues so how to carry out an aggression against Lebanon?” he stated.
