A senior Hezbollah official says “the Israeli effort to harm the Al-Aqsa Mosque and harm our holy sites will set the region on fire.”

The comments to the Hezbollah-linked al-Manar TV by Hezbollah Executive Council chief Hashem Safi al-Din come shortly after a barrage of 34 rockets were fired at Lebanon from Israel.

While Hezbollah has denied responsibility for the rockets, it is widely believed that they wouldn’t have been fired without the terror group’s approval.

The past two nights have seen intense clashes between Israeli police and Palestinian worshippers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
