‘War with Israel could take place in their territory’

BEIRUT: Lebanese Hizbollah said on Thursday that any future conflict between the Shi’ite group and Israel could take place inside Israeli territory, at a time of high tension between the arch foes.

Hizbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah also said in a live televised speech that the group had dismantled all its military positions along Lebanon’s eastern border with Syria, and this area was now the “responsibility of the state”.

Israel “is scared and worried of any future confrontation... and knows that it could be inside the occupied Palestinian territories,” Nasrallah said.

Two Israeli air strikes against Hizbollah targets inside Syria in recent weeks have raised tension between the two.

Nasrallah said the Syrian conflict had entered a new phase, without elaborating, but added that any opportunity to halt the fighting in the country should be seized.

Hizbollah said on Thursday it had dismantled all its military positions along Lebanon’s eastern border with Syria, and this area was now the “responsibility of the state”, with no need for the Shi’ite group’s presence.
