The leader of Hizbullah said Sunday that Israel's recent military exercises near the Lebanese border were intended to prepare for a new war on Lebanon. Hassan Nasrallah also said Hizbullah's military maneuvers in southern Lebanon in response to the Israeli drills were designed to send out "a clear message" to the Jewish state that his fighters were ready to defend Lebanon if it was attacked by Israel. "The (Israeli) enemy has been conducting military maneuvers for months. The latest maneuvers occurred a few weeks ago near the Lebanese border in which 50,000 Israeli officers and soldiers participated," Nasrallah told a Hizbullah rally in south Beirut. "These maneuvers are to prepare for an attack on Lebanon," he said.
