UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Wednesday warned of Israel’s response to Hezbollah’s rockets on the security and stability of the region.
This came during a speech broadcast on state television, on the sidelines of a youth conference held on Tuesday and Wednesday, in the new administrative capital, east of Cairo.
“Imagine if Hezbollah’s forces or capabilities are used in Lebanon against Israel, tens of thousands of rockets,” Sissi said. “The response from Israel in this case would be huge and very violent.”
“The (potential) conflict will have a very big impact on the Middle East,” he said. “The region will enter into a huge conflict.”
“The stability of the region must be maintained and solutions away from the conflict should be maintained … The region has been troubled since 2011, and in the region, there is no further turmoil,” he said.
“We seek to find solutions while preserving the fundamentals of Arab national security and the national security of the Gulf states,” he said.
The Egyptian president’s warnings came about two weeks after Hezbollah’s secretary-general, Hassan Nasrallah, said that the resistance had evolved in both quantity and quantity, and that the equations achieved in the July 2006 war were still in place.
“Resistance is stronger than ever,” Nasrallah said in an interview broadcast on the anniversary of the 13th anniversary of the end of the July 2006 war with Israel. “Since the war Lebanon has been safe on the border and at all levels.”
He also pointed out that “the number of members of Hezbollah has doubled and there has been a development in both missile and missile capability.”
The July 2006 war was the last direct confrontation between Israel and Hezbollah, pro-Iranian, which Israel considers its first enemy.
The confrontation began on July 12 and continued for 34 days, killing about 1,200 Lebanese and more than 120 Israelis, and left extensive material destruction in Lebanon.
