Hassan Nasrallah has warned that any Israeli attack on Lebanon “will be definitely nd ce be responded to.” 

                       Nasrallah warns of immediate retaliation to any Israel's attack on Lebanon

Nasrallah said,despite is really possessing a large army, advanced air force and nuclear weapons,they  cannot handle the number of missiles possessed they posses.”

 The Hezbollah leader’s comments came amid reports that Israel has warned the Lebanese government that if it does not act against the terror group’s rocket factories in the country, Israel could take military action.

 The missile sites were first revealed by Netanyahu during his September 27 speech at the United Nations General Assembly.

 The factories, which are meant to convert regular missiles into more accurate precision ones, are not believed to be up and running.

The Israel Defense Forces said they are currently being constructed with Iranian assistance. Nasrallah said the large missile arsenal held by his group was the main deterrent preventing Israeli attacks.

He also stressed his organization was key to maintaining this deterrent.

 Supporter of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group raise their fists and cheer as they listen to a speech by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, via a video link, during a rally marking Hezbollah Martyr’s Day, in a southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon, Nov. 10, 2018.

 “The Lebanese army cannot hold missile capabilities. It is prevented from doing so by the US and other countries. It cannot hold capabilities that will allow it to create an equation of deterrence against the enemy. That is why Hezbollah’s missiles are significant.”

 In Saturday’s speech Nasrallah added that on the Syrian front, “Had it not been for Syria’s Army and the country’s leadership, we would have witnessed [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu in Damascus.”

 In comments last month Nasrallah dismissed as a “farce” Netanyahu’s UN speech in which he accused the group of secretly constructing underground missile production facilities near Beirut’s international airport.

 “Netanyahu’s psychological warfare over the missiles was a farce,” Nasrallah said on October 12. 

 Israel’s threat was conveyed to Beirut by Israel’s deputy national security adviser Eitan Ben-David via Paris.

 Ben-David gave it to Orléan la-Chevalier, a top adviser to French President Emmanuel Macron, during the latter’s visit in Jerusalem in late October. 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addresses the General Assembly at the United Nations in New York September 27, 2018, and holds up a placard detailing alleged Hezbollah missile sites in Beirut.

 Nasrallah also spoke out harshly against the apparent warming of relations between Israel and Gulf states, saying, “We condemn any form of normalization with Israel.

 “The current normalization puts an end to the ِArab hypocrisy and brings down the masks of the deceitful and hypocrites,” he said.

But he described this as a positive step: “Finally it is clear who stands on which side — a necessary condition for victory.”

 Israel and Saudi Arabia have no official relations and the kingdom does not recognize the Jewish state. Still, Israel has hinted at clandestine ties with Saudi Arabia in recent years, stressing the two countries share an interest in countering Iran. 

Netanyahu and Intelligence and Transportation Minister Israel Katz both recently visited Oman, while Israel’s culture and communications ministers were in the United Arab Emirates last month.

And Israel and Qatar have reportedly been in close contact recently as the latter has taken a central part in attempts to broker a calm in the Gaza Strip. 

Netanyahu has repeatedly stated that he can see a path to peace with Palestinians through the “normalization” of relations with Arab states, which, like Israel, oppose Iran.
