Hezbollah: Israel Plotting to Assassinate Sayyed Nasrallah


"22/05/2009 “Israel is planning to assassinate Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, a development which would set the region ablaze,” a senior Hezbollah member told pan-Arab London-based daily newspaper Asharq al-Awsat on Friday.

Sayyed Nawaf al-Moussawi, who was Hezbollah's top foreign policy official and who is now running for a seat representing the south Lebanese town of Tyre in Lebanon's upcoming parliamentary elections, said that Israel's plan was hatched in concert with Arab governments.

Moussawi spoke in detail about the elections. He also told the newspaper that Israel's planned large-scale military drill is really a simulation of the army's plan to liquidate Sayyed Nasrallah.

"The resistance is addressing this military maneuver responsibly and seriously," Moussawi said, adding that Hezbollah is on high alert "because a decision was taken in Israel to assassinate Nasrallah, and many states have conspired with Israel on this front." "
