Israeli Attack on Lebanon Depends on Iran, Syria

A00086235.jpgTEHRAN (FNA)- Hezbollah chief Seyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Monday that any Israeli attack on Lebanon depended on the Iranian nuclear issue and the Israel-Syria talks.

“I can not say when Israel is going to attack Lebanon, if it is going to be soon or not. It depends on the region’s events and circumstances,” Nasrallah said in an interview with Iran’s state-run television.

“On the one hand it depends on Iran’s nuclear case, and on the other hand it depends on the indirect talks between Syria and Israel,” he added.

He was referring to the Iranian nuclear drive which the West claims is a weapons program under the guise of a civilian one. Western countries have never presented any corroborative document to substantiate their allegations.

Iran vehemently denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

Israel and Syria, which have technically been at war for 60 years, launched indirect negotiations brokered by Turkey in May, eight years after talks were frozen over the fate of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Nasrallah assessed the current situation in the Middle East as “not stable and not calm”, but he added that Hezbollah’s “military situation is in best shape, thanks God.”

Hezbollah defeated the Zionist regime’s army during a 33-day war in summer 2006.
