The Gaza war continues until the hour, along with mutual military operations on the Lebanese front, while the Lebanese interior is becoming increasingly attached to the Iranian signal confirming that Iran is unwilling to a full-scale war and to an Israeli signal confirming that the Israelis have no desire to expand the confrontations as well.

In parallel with these signs, a question arises: "is there a war or not? And what could happen if that war breaks out, in very difficult political, economic and living conditions witnessed by Lebanon and Syria together with such a sensitive confrontation with Israel?”

A source called for "dealing with Israeli threats that talk about an attack on Lebanon in a matter of weeks in a serious way. Nevertheless, Lebanon does not want war. But if Tel Aviv starts a formal attack, and at a great pace, we will find that we have become inevitably at the center of the battles".

He considered in an interview with "Akhbar al-Yawm" that "no international body is able to guarantee that there will be no war in Lebanon, or a comprehensive confrontation at the regional level. The solution starts with a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. The negotiations that are taking place in this framework are probably serious, and the American and Arab efforts are clear, although it has been difficult to reach any kind of agreement".

The source pointed out that "when the United States of America, Britain, France, and Europe talk in general, about the two-state solution as a necessity to resolve the conflict, and when the Israelis refuse to do so, and take all the steps that frustrate this solution, we are in front of crazy people, who have decided to continue with a crazy war".

He added: "Israel always wants wars, even if there is no attack on it. That is why we find that the Iranians and their affiliated armed factions in Lebanon and throughout the region have been dealing with the possibility of a comprehensive escalation with caution since October 7 until now. The destruction of Lebanon by any war today means turning it into another Gaza, especially since no Arab or Gulf state will provide assistance to Beirut, not in reconstruction, not even at the level of aid".

He concluded: "this reality pushes all the parties friendly to Iran and to the axis of "resistance" in Lebanon, especially the Christian ones, to make accurate calculations regarding the Gaza war".
