Liberman: Syria fighting will be over soon, Hezbollah will turn its sights on Israel

Yisrael Beytenu chief Avigdor Liberman warned Monday that comments made by Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah over the weekend suggest that the organization intends to set its sights on Israel as soon as it extricates itself from fighting in Syria's civil war.

During a rare public appearance in Beirut to mark the Shi'ite Ashura holy day, Nasrallah attacked both Israel and the US, saying that Hezbollah has fought Israel in the past and will continue to do so. "Anyone who thinks that we will retreat or give up- that won't happen. We will win," he vowed.
