Hezbollah: Netanyahu’s Victory Won’t Affect Maritime Deal

BEIRUT (Dispatches) – The
demarcation deal between the Zionist regime and Lebanon will not be affected by the return to power of right-wing Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a senior official in Hezbollah said.
Hassan al-Baghdadi said, “The sharp division within the occupation temporary regime and the weak victory of the extreme right heralds the rapid demise of this non-viable entity,” stressing that this “gives us hope for the speed of its collapse, especially with the escalation of resistance in the West Bank, which makes the occupation leaders worry about their future.”
“No future regime can touch the achievements made by the demarcation deal to preserve Lebanon’s wealth,” al-Baghdadi said.
Netanyahu’s camp, which includes far-right parties, won 64 of the 120 seats in the Zionist regime’s Knesset elections last Tuesday.
The head of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has attributed the Zionist regime’s recent inking of the maritime deal with Beirut to Tel Aviv’s fear of engaging in another conflict with his movement.
The resistance had threatened not to allow extraction of gas from the disputed Karish natural gas field in Eastern Mediterranean before conclusion of an agreement that would meet Beirut’s demands, said Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah during a speech last week.
Emphasizing that the resistance’s threats confronted the Zionist regime with the prospect of a conflict with the movement and even a regional war, Nasrallah added, “It was [only] after the American and Israeli sides realized that the resistance was serious about what it says and witnessed [the resistance’s] drones over Karish, that the agreement came about.”
Nasrallah further credited persisting Palestinian resistance efforts across the occupied West Bank for reaching the agreement, pointing out that half of the regime’s occupation army has been deployed to the West Bank and is therefore unable to engage in war with Lebanon.
The Hezbollah chief, meanwhile, underlined that the occupying regime was not prepared to engage in another war due to its domestic troubles as well as facing another uprising by native Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
