A senior spokesman of Hamas said that Hezbollah will engage in war with Israel only when Hamas is completely eliminated. Hamas leader Ahmed Abdul Hadi said this while talking to reporters on Monday.
The Hamas spokesman is currently based in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. Abdul Hadi said in an interview with the American broadcaster NBC News, “Now is not the right time.”
He added that the final limit for Hezbollah is when Hamas in Gaza is no longer able to resist, they will fight.
Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Iran-backed Lebanese armed group Hezbollah, saying the Lebanese group was playing with fire, amid rising tensions on the northern border. He has warned that Hezbollah will have to pay a heavy price for this.
“Fire will be met with stronger fire,” the Israeli prime minister said without naming Hezbollah. They definitely won’t take our test. Because we have demonstrated only a small part of our power. Those who harm us, we will harm them.
He said these things during a meeting with the soldiers of Unit-585 known as the Bedouin Battalion of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) in the northern region on Monday. At this time, he praised the members of the Bedouin Battalion in the war against Hamas.
