Lebanon’s Hezbollah said on Sunday that the Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was pushing the region to war in Syria, Lebanon and in the Gaza Strip.
In a speech to followers, the leader of the Iran-backed group, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said the Israeli government did not have “a correct assessment of where this war will lead if they ignite it”, and did not know how it would end.
He was speaking on the occasion of Ashura, when Shiites commemorate the slaying of the Prophet Mohammad’s grandson, the Imam Hussein, at Kerbala in 680.
