Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Friday the resignation of Israel's military chief proved that his group had won the July-August war with Israel, and forecast that the country's defense and prime ministers would also have to resign.
"It is natural and logical that (Israeli Defense Minister Amir) Peretz should fall. I expect him to resign. He will be the next victim," Nasrallah said in an interview on Hizbullah's Al-Manar television station.
He predicted that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert would also pay the price of Israel's failure to crush Hizbullah and secure the release of its soldiers in the 34-day war.
"In the end, (Olmert) will either resign or be overthrown," Nasrallah said.
