Israel-Hamas War: Hezbollah’s open threat to Israel, said- If ground war is launched against Hamas, the price will have to be paid
AP, Beirut. If the Israeli army launches a ground war against Hamas in Gaza, it will have to pay a heavy price for it. Lebanon is also involved in this fight. This was said by Sheikh Naeem Qassem, deputy head of the Iran-backed Lebanese extremist organization Hezbollah.
Hezbollah ready for war with Israel
Kasem said, by fighting the Israeli army for the last two weeks, we are weakening the Israeli army. We will benefit from this in the upcoming battle. Hezbollah has declared readiness for war with Israel.

Hezbollah claims- caused damage to Israeli army
Four fighters from the Lebanese group Hezbollah were killed along the border with Israel on Saturday, Iran-backed group Hezbollah said, bringing to 17 the number of its members killed during two weeks of escalating violence in the border region. Hezbollah claims that its fighters have also caused huge loss of life and property to the Israeli army.
Hezbollah and Israeli forces have been exchanging fire along the border almost daily since the Palestinian group Hamas launched a deadly attack on Israel on October 7 and Israel responded with fierce air strikes on Gaza. The shootings are the latest violence on the Israeli-Lebanese border since the 2006 war between Hezbollah and Israel.
Hezbollah was created because
Sources had previously said that Hezbollah’s attacks were designed to contain Israeli forces without provoking a major war. Israel has said it has no interest in waging war and has said it will maintain the status quo if Hezbollah is stopped. But rising tensions have raised concerns about the risk of wider conflict in the region and beyond, as Israel prepares for a possible land incursion into Gaza.
