According to a report in a Lebanese newspaper affiliated with Hizbullah, Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah believes Israel will launch a war against Lebanon soon, possibly in the spring.
In the meantime, reports from Syria indicate that in such an event, Syria will not remain at the sidelines, but will play an active role, stating Syria views as assault against Lebanon as compromising Syrian security as well.
For those questioning why Israel would launch an offensive in Lebanon, the report states Israel is deciding to once and for all eliminate Hizbullah. The report adds that during a recent meeting in Washington between the president of Lebanon and America’s national security advisor, the Lebanese leader warned if a solution regarding Hizbullah’s weaponry is not found, Israel will indeed launch an offensive into southern Lebanon.
