Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah commented for the first time, in a speech he gave to mark the 17th anniversary of the Second Lebanon War, to the confrontation with Israel around the tents that the organization set up on Mount Dov.

"If Israel takes action against the tents that have been set up across the blue line - it will not go unnoticed. This is Lebanese land and must be in Lebanon's hands at any cost and it is Hezbollah's responsibility to do so. We will also return our land in Ghajar in cooperation with the Lebanese government," Nasrallah stated.

According to him, "Israeli deterrence has been eroded, but there is no erosion in Israeli arrogance. Israel continues to violate Lebanese sovereignty."

According to him, the responsibility for handling the violation of Lebanese sovereignty rests with the Lebanese army and UNIFIL, however, so far they have documented the violations but have not been able to change the situation despite referrals to international authorities.

He claimed that "the victory in the Second Lebanon War put an end to the Great Israel Plan, and the US New Middle East Plan failed in Lebanon and was destroyed in Palestine, Iraq, Syria and Iran."

According to him, "The victory in 2006 put Israel on the path of retreat. The Israeli enemy tried all means to prevent the strengthening of Hezbollah's power in Lebanon, but it was not successful. The peace and security in southern Lebanon is the result of the public's confidence in the existing deterrence capacity compared to the terror from our side on the Israeli side." .

He also accused Israel of being responsible for the burning of the Koran in Sweden by an extremist. "The man who burned the Koran in Sweden had a connection to the Israeli establishment and his goal was to provoke a conflict between Muslims and Christians," he claimed.
