Hezbollah ‘fully ready’ to contribute to war against Israel: report

Hezbollah deputy chief Naim Qassem said Friday that the Lebanon-based terrorist group is “fully ready” to fight alongside Hamas in the war against Israel, despite calls for the party to stand down, Reuters reports.

This comes amid clashes with Israel along the Lebanese border with cross-border rocket fire and shelling in “the deadliest confrontation since they fought a month-long war in 2006,” the outlet says.

Additionally, three sources in Lebanon report that the IDF has responded to an explosion along the border wall with artillery fire, striking a Lebanese army observation post Friday.

One source with security intel reports that Palestinian groups were attempting an armed infiltration at the border which sparked a warning from the Israeli military to residents nearby to stay at locked up at home.

Qassam told Hezbollah supporters earlier at a rally in Beirut, “The behind-the-scenes calls with us by great powers, Arab countries, envoys of the United Nations, directly and indirectly telling us not to interfere will have no effect.”

"Hezbollah knows its duties perfectly well. We are prepared and ready, fully ready," he continued.

"The question being asked, which everyone is waiting for, is: what Hezbollah will do and what will its contribution be?" Qassem said. "We will contribute to the confrontation within our plan... when the time comes for any action, we will carry it out."
