Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah dismissed Israel’s latest warnings over any escalation related to the dispute over offshore gas, saying that his party, like Lebanon, is also waiting for Israel’s response to the latest Lebanese proposal.
“We said everything that could be said and now it’s time to wait,” he said in a televised speech, adding, “The Israelis are talking a lot these days positively and negatively but we should wait.”
“Those who waited more than ten years can wait for a few more days. No problem,” he added in dismissal.
Nasrallah mentioned the Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz by saying “We’re always hearing threats and the last one who threatened was Gantz.“
He added: “To us, all of these threats are of no value. Our decision, rhetoric, and orientation are clear and we are awaiting the coming days to act accordingly.”
Nasrallah has repeatedly warned that Hezbollah will “escalate” against Israel if Lebanon’s demands in the sea border demarcation file are not met.
