Hezbollah’s damage to Israel cannot be repaired 'for decades': Lebanese MP

Smoke billows after rockets fired from southern Lebanon hit the Upper Galilee region.

A senior Lebanese lawmaker says Hezbollah’s damage to Israel as a result of its pro-Palestinian retaliatory operations cannot be repaired for the next few decades.

“As a result of these attacks, we have dealt major blows to the Zionist enemy, which it cannot recover from within the next few decades,” Mohammad Raad, head of Loyalty to the Resistance Bloc – the political wing of Hezbollah – in the Lebanese parliament, said on Sunday.

“The Israeli society is collapsing, and we are seeing the last stages of a purported unified society,” Raad stated.

He added that Hezbollah’s operations are aimed at protecting Lebanon’s national dignity and territorial integrity, and that the group’s attempts in the path of confronting the Israeli regime are not in vain.

Raad stressed that the Lebanese resistance movement did not enter the struggle for futile interests and purposes.

Hezbollah’s anti-Israeli strikes will make Lebanon immune to Israel’s aggression and will deter the usurping regime from entertaining the notion of mounting a military offensive on the Arab country, he argued.

“We will identify the Zionist regime’s pressure levers and strike them in order to weaken the enemy and thwart its expansionist objectives. Even though such confrontation requires great patience and persistence as well as hefty costs, it is worth it as the enemy’s aggression leads to massive destruction and brutal occupation of the country,” Raad stressed.

He went on to say that Hezbollah’s struggle against Israel is not confined to the present time.

The resistance group is laying foundations that will be useful in future stages, the Lebanese legislator said, adding, “One must get prepared to weather any potential act of aggression from the Israeli enemy.”

Hezbollah and Israel have been exchanging deadly fire since early October last year, shortly after the regime launched a genocidal aggression against the Gaza Strip following a surprise operation by the Palestinian Hamas resistance group.

The Lebanese resistance movement has vowed to keep up its retaliatory attacks as long as the Tel Aviv regime continues its Gaza war, which has so far killed at least 38,514 Palestinians, mostly women and children, in Gaza.

Hezbollah officials have repeatedly said they do not want a war with Israel, while stressing that they are prepared in case it occurs.
