Some news stories have suggested that war between Hezbollah and Israel is very likely now. In my view, the chances may have risen but I do not see why it is in Hezbollah’s interest to start such a war now. They are deeply involved in Syria, and they—and Iran—appear to be gaining ground steadily. Why start a war that may well involve Syria as well, with unpredictable effects on the conflict there? Why not continue making gains in Syria, and consolidate those gains?Sponsored Links
War with Israel is not up to Hezbollah. It is up to Iran. When Iran decides there will be war then there will be war. The fact that war is not in Hezbollah’s is irrelevant.
