A Hezbollah source told the Kuwaiti daily As-Seyassah that the party has issued an internal memorandum noting increased provocation against the resistance and the cover some Lebanese factions are providing to any possible Israeli aggression on Lebanon.
“Hezbollah’s enemies have seen signals of weakness in the party’s decision not to retaliate yet to the assassination of Imad Mugniyah, and this might encourage Israel and its Lebanese allies to come up with a new adventure. Media reports have been focusing lately on Hezbollah’s activities in establishing military bases. This is also part of the provocation against the resistance,” the memorandum said.
The source added that Hezbollah no longer has good relations with the Lebanese army.
“Members of an official security service that is allied with March 14 have been talking about the cameras placed near airport runway 17 for several weeks. When the cameras were discovered, the information was released through the defense minister, and the Army Intelligence Services confirmed it. This means that the historical close relationship between the Lebanese army and the resistance is over for good. The military institution has taken sides with the other party,” the source said.
The internal memorandum also said that an Israeli report has confirmed Hezbollah’s suspicion that a PSP official was involved in Mugniyah’s assassination.
“Hezbollah called on its officials to take security measures and move into secondary residences. It also called on its members to be prepared for any scenario,” the source added.
He also said that the present campaign against Hezbollah is more dangerous than the 2006 July War. “Internal factions are participating in this campaign, and as the number of our allies has decreased, so has their readiness to provide the party with a political cover, especially since the FPM, headed by MP Michel Aoun, has become inefficient on the Christian level. The same is true of Hezbollah’s Sunni allies.”
“Thus, Hezbollah will be more or less alone in the coming confrontation,” he added.
