Original Message Hezbollah is not eager to ramp up its hostilities against Israel, the Russian foreign minister has said.

Moscow does not believe that Iran, Lebanon or Hezbollah want the Israel-Palestine war to escalate into a broader regional conflict, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has told Russia’s RT television.

Concerns continue to be raised that the fighting between Israel and Palestinian militant group Hamas could spark a wider war in the Middle East.

Israel’s defense minister has threatened to bomb the Lebanese capital Beirut in a similar way to Israel’s campaign in Gaza, while some U.S. hawks have called for an attack on Iran.

Moscow, however, believes there is “no appetite” for a major conflict in Lebanon or Iran, Lavrov stated, adding that neither country wants “any involvement in this crisis.”

While there have been border clashes between Israeli troops and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah, Lavrov claimed that recent televised remarks by Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah suggest that the group has “no appetite for a big war.”
