Nasrallah Presents Hizbullah's Perception of Confrontation with Israel

(Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs) Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Dr. Shimon Shapira - In an address marking the 12th anniversary of the Second Lebanon War on August 14, 2018, Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary General of Hizbullah, claimed to have achieved complete deterrence against Israeli aerial attacks in Lebanon as a result of the war. Nasrallah noted that Israel's military training is based on preventing the occupation of the Galilee and not merely on offensive attacks into Lebanese territory. He further declared that "the Israeli efforts to obtain recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights have failed." He also claimed that the Israeli demand to remove Hizbullah and Iran from Syria is futile and will fail. The writer, a former Israel Foreign Ministry chief of staff, is a senior researcher at the Jerusalem Center.
