Israeli PM Netanyahu sought to escalate Mideast tensions to win another term: Nasrallah
Tehran (KNA) - The secretary general of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did his utmost to escalate tensions and crises in the Middle East as part of attempts to secure another term in office, but all to no avail.
“Netanyahu tried to change equation in Lebanon in a bid to stay in power and continue on as incumbent Israeli prime minister. He even engaged in fiery rhetoric against Iran, but his bid to secure another term just failed,” Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in an address to his supporters in a televised speech broadcast live from the Lebanese capital city of Beirut on Friday.
"Results of the recent Israeli elections exposed the extent of leadership crisis there, and showed the lack of confidence in the regime,” the Hezbollah chief said.
