Nasrallah: Attack on Lebanon possible; Egypt must open Rafah

Dec. 29, 2008 9:52 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 29, 2008 9:52 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Secretary-General of Hizbullah Hasan Nasrallah on Sunday warned that Israel might extend its aggression on the Gaza Strip and attack Lebanon, taking advantage of the transitional period before the new US president-elect comes to office.

"Resistance is ready to counter any Israeli aggression on Lebanon," Nasralah said. He added, "I asked the resistance fighters in southern Lebanon to be careful because our enemy is criminal and treacherous."

Nasrallah also called on the Egyptian people, governmental officers, intelligentsia and political parties to exert pressure on their government to keep the Rafah crossing open permanently and to send weapons and ammunition to Gaza.

"Thousands of Egyptians must take to the street and demand the opening of Rafah crossing," Nasrallah said.

Nasrallah explained that if Egypt does not open the Rafah crossing it will be accused of partnership in the aggression and siege on Gaza. He described what is going on in Gaza as "a Palestinian version of what happened in Lebanon in July 2006."

He called on all Arab peoples to take to streets and announced a period of general mourning on Monday.
