Secretary-general of the Lebanese Hizbullah party Hassan Nasrallah has affirmed that as long as Israel remains occupying Lebanese lands; the resistance is duty-bound to liberate it as a legitimate right.

In an interview with the Lebanese New TV channel Sunday, Nasrallah unveiled that in spite of cessation of hostilities in south Lebanon, IOF troops were still provoking his fighters into a new confrontation that would open the door for the USA to draft another resolution claiming that Hizbaullh breached the ceasefire and would this time tackle the issue of Hizbullah weapons.

"If the Lebanese army and the UNIFIL deployed in the south, then Israel has no right to keep a foothold there otherwise we will fight them", he said, adding that his men will provide the Lebanese army and the UNIFIL with all the assistance they need as long as their mission is not to disarm Hizbullah.

Nasrallah, however, acknowledged that Hizbullah leadership didn’t expect the Israeli response to the capturing of the two soldiers to be of that vast destruction, otherwise, he added, Hizbullah would not have carried it out in the first place.

He furthermore unveiled that negotiations over the captured Israeli soldiers and the Lebanese captives in Israeli jails started with Italy showing interest to participate, adding that the UN was also concerned with the issue.

Meanwhile, a French newspaper affirmed that the stiff resistance displayed by Hizbullah fighters has created political crisis in Israel with two out of three Israeli settlers want Israeli premier out of office.

The paper L’ Humanite added that Israel’s preference of a military solution over the political one, following the footsteps of former premier Ariel Sharon, wouldn’t lead to a solution, adding that no permanent solution in the Middle East could be achieved unless the Palestinian issue is justly resolved.

The Hebrew Ma’ariv newspaper revealed in its Monday edition that Israel’s war ministry was gearing up for another military confrontation with Hizbullah as the ministry asked for 7.5 billion dollars to rebuild Israel’s military capabilities and defeat the Lebanese resistance.

Israeli critics affirmed that the money, if granted, would derail a lot of social welfare projects and affect development in other vital sectors like the education and health sectors.

In the meantime, Israel’s racism against Palestinians in the 1948-occupied lands appeared clearly as the Hebrew Ha’aretz newspaper quoted Israeli environment minister Gideon Ezra as demanding in an Israeli ministerial meeting that funds allocated for rehabilitating the northern Israeli settlements shouldn’t reach Arab communities, adding that "Arabs in Israel acted normally during the war, and therefore, they shouldn’t enjoy the rehabilitation plans".

Arab students, according to Israeli records, constitute 60% of total students in the north.
