Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Friday warned Israel that his terror group knows more about the Jewish State than any other Arab power ever has.
Nasrallah was making his comments in an address for al-Quds Day, a day where hatred of Israel, the US and all things Western is marked in Iran and some other Islamic countries.
The terrorist leader said he was not impressed by Israeli warnings not to test the country’s readiness along its northern border.
“The threats we heard are not new, but what is new is that Israel speaks about this a lot. The threat to destroy us and kill us is not new,” Nasrallah said.
“Israeli comments reflect their fear of [Hezbollah] defeating Islamic State in Syria,” Nasrallah said. He claimed Israel was supporting Sunni groups involved in the Syrian civil war, using them for a proxy war against Hezbollah.
He admitted that Israel has “strong intelligence mechanisms and your drones fly day and night over Lebanon. But you also had a lot of intelligence in the Second Lebanon War and you were still surprised” by Hezbollah, Nasrallah said, according to a translation published by Ynet.
That war’s tenth anniversary is two weeks away.
Nasrallah proceeded to boast that Hezbollah possesses significant intelligence on Israel.
“The important thing is the amount of information we have about you — on your power plants, your petrochemical plants, your nuclear sites, your important economic sites, your strengths and weaknesses and your resources in all areas,” Nasrallah said.
“We are the first Arab entity to have this amount of information on the Israeli enemy,” he added.
