Hizbullah Terror Chief Welcomes Maritime Border Deal, Claims "Resistance" Prodded Israel

(Times of Israel) Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Tuesday welcomed the agreement between Israel and Lebanon to settle a maritime border dispute, claiming his group's "resistance" helped prod Israel toward a deal. Hizbullah repeatedly threatened Israel during the negotiations and launched several drones at Israel's offshore gas installations. "Tonight there will only be joy and clapping," Nasrallah said in a televised address. "Israel is more afraid of war than the Lebanese."
