BEIRUT - Lebanon's Hezbollah said on Sunday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government was pushing the region to war in Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

In a speech to followers, the leader of the Iran-backed group, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said the Israeli government did not have "a correct assessment of where this war will lead if they ignite it," and did not know how it would end.

He was speaking on the occasion of Ashura, when Shi'ites commemorate the slaying of the Prophet Mohammad's grandson, the Imam Hussein, at Kerbala in 680.
