Qassem: Israel fears war in Lebanon this summer

Deputy Secretary-General Naim Qassem of Hezbollah says that Israel is afraid of a war in Lebanon this summer, with the understanding that it would lead to heavy casualties, according to Yediot Ahronot.

It cited an interview with Al-Akhbar, in which Qassem said "All the indications indicate that Israel is deterred and has no decision to carry out a new offensive against Lebanon. If Israel nevertheless surprises and takes a hasty step, Hezbollah is ready for any scenario."
