Hizbullah representative in Iran Muhammad Abdullah Sif al-Din explained in an interview with the Iranian newspaper Shargh why Nasrallah's threats to hit Tel Aviv were not actualized during the war.
According to him, "We believe in the destruction of Israel, but the political stance is different than the military stance. There is no need to demonstrate all our capabilities in a military confrontation with the enemy. We must prepare ahead of time emergency operations and to leave them for the appropriate time. From the political perspective - we will never recognize Israel." (Dudi Cohen)
