Nasrallah dismisses Israeli threats, says awaiting demarcation proposal

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Monday dismissed Israel’s latest warnings over any escalation related to the dispute over offshore gas, as he said that like Lebanon, his party is also waiting for Israel’s response to the latest Lebanese proposal.

“I will not say anything new. We have said everything that we should say. Now we are all waiting. The Israelis are talking a lot these days -- positively and negatively -- but we should wait,” Nasrallah said in a televised address.

“Those who waited more than ten years can wait for a few more days. No problem,” he added.

“Let us wait and stay calm. We’re always hearing threats and the last one who threatened was (Israeli Defense Minister Benny) Gantz,” Nasrallah went on to say.

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.
