Israel Warns Hizbullah any Confrontation ‘Will Shock You’

Israeli army spokesman Avichai Adraee voiced threats on Wednesday warning Hizbullah to refrain from waging any aggression against Israel “because we are going to surprise you if you dare,” he warned.

“Maintaining stability in the region is a common interest of the Israeli and Lebanese sides, but if you dare, we will surprise you,“ said the Israeli official in a video footage.

He added that “Hizbullah has been working as an Iranian arm in Lebanon and sacrificing Lebanese to foreign interests.”

Hizbullah has been hit hard in the Syrian war and “its support in Lebanon and the Arab world continues to decline,” he added.

The official warned that Israel is “closely monitoring what Hizbullah is doing as well as what is happening on the border and beyond.”
