Lebanon blames Israel for anti-Hezbollah telecoms hacking

Honoring the memory of the slain commander, the Hezbollah chief said Israel knows that any future conflict will be inside occupied Palestine, Press TV reported.

The Syrian conflict has also been an arena where tensions between Israel and Hezbollah have ramped up.

There has been rising speculation about the possibility of a new war between Israel and Hezbollah, a powerful Lebanese paramilitary organization, more than a decade after their last direct confrontation.

The judge also cited a possible "mental disturbance" and concerns about reports just before his death that he was gay. After hearing arguments from both sides, Judge Susan Garsh said she expects to issue a decision late Tuesday morning.

During a visit to Israel this week, US Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford said Hezbollah's potential of opening a front against Israel in Syria is a "big threat" to the security of the Jewish state.

Dunford, who was in Israel on his third official visit this week told reporters traveling with him that he discussed issues of mutual concerns in the region with Israeli military officials, including Iran's influence in the region, Hezbollah's presence in southern Syria and the presence of the Islamic State group in the tri-border area of Israel, Syria and Jordan.

Israel "is scared and anxious of any future confrontation. and knows that it could be inside the occupied Palestinian territories", Nasrallah said.

Nasrallah has threatened Israel with invasion before, and earlier this year said the militant group's rockets could strike anywhere in Israeli territory, a regular claim made by Israel's enemies. "The mission has been accomplished. from now on (this area is) the responsibility of the state", he said.

Any chance to halt the fighting was positive and should be supported, he said, in apparent reference to a Russian-led initiative to set up "de-escalation zones" in Syria.
