Hizbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah posited that “one reason that there’s no war is that Iran is strong, otherwise the war could have been launched. The other reason is that the CIA knows that a war on Iran will set the region on fire and won’t stop behind its borders. …The whole region will ignite and the U.S. troops and interests will exterminate if a war on Iran was launched.” Warning Israel that Hizbollah would respond to any Israeli aggression, Nasrallah declared that “we have in Lebanon precision rockets that are able to target direct posts in Israel and that would change the face of the region”.
