“…Nasrallah has been hiding underground since 2006. And he will keep on hiding. Nasrallah knows that once he ventures out in public he will be killed. Not by Israel, but rather by Sunni radical groups in Lebanon.“
July 3, 2012 the President of Israel declares that Nasrallah hides in his bunker because he is afraid of the Lebanese. Not because of Israel.
