Hezbollah says war with Israel unlikely

AP , Friday 10 Nov 2017

Lebanon's Hezbollah leader says war with Israel is unlikely amid the crisis facing his country following the resignation of its prime minister Saad Hariri in an announcement made from Saudi Arabia.

Hassan Nasrallah said Friday that his powerful militant group is watching carefully for any Israeli attempts to use the crisis to begin hostilities against Lebanon. Nasrallah says Israel is cautious and unlikely to make such a move.

Nasrallah warned Israel against "miscalculation" or "taking advantage of the situation."

He said Israel should not think "we are troubled. No, absolutely not."

"Today we are more confident and feeling stronger in the face of any threat," said Nasrallah.
