Strong American message to deter Hezbollah...

Chadi Hileneh, "Akhbar al-Yawm" agency

Answer: the decision is not in the hands of the state

Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Barbara Leaf called on Iran this morning to stop arming the party, considering that it is leading its country (Lebanon) to a dangerous situation, hoping that the Lebanese state monopolizes weapons, and Hezbollah will be a political party, which prompted a response by the opposition team, where a reluctant source said via the "Akhbar al-Yawm" agency: "it is not possible to separate the party on the southern borders of Lebanon, pointing out that the US administration's attempt to separate the southern front from the Gaza Strip front or from Iranian policy is not possible at all".

But if the answer is known, the question is: "what is the point of demanding that the party get involved in politics and hand over its weapons?" The source replied: "the decision is not in the hands of the Lebanese state, but in the hands of the party, and if it is approved, the current reality in Lebanon will change". He adds: "to reach a reality of this kind, Israel should withdraw from the Shebaa farms, the Kfarchouba hills and other occupied territories".

On the other hand, the United States does not hesitate to send dangerous messages to Hezbollah in Lebanon to accept the buffer zone based on the strict implementation of international resolution 1701, and the aim of this is to permanently neutralize the party from the military scene against Israel in southern Litani, especially after the increasingly dangerous escalation between the two sides, and on the premise that Tel Aviv is preparing for large-scale ground incursions that could ignite a major war a diplomatic solution to the military situation on the southern front.
