UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – As part of the US policies for the survival of the Tel Aviv regime, two US senators filed a bill to the US Congress for the disarmament of the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, reports the Lebanese daily al- Akbar.
According to Lebanese sources, two members of the US Congress, Tom Suozzi (Democrat) and Adam Kinzinger (Republican), tabled an unprecedented draft law for the disarmament of Hezbollah (“Disarm Hizballah Act”) on April 20 in the House of Representatives).
According to L’Orient-Le Jour quoting al-Akbar , the proposal for this bill shows that Israel and its American ally are panicked by the performance of the Resistance movement in the region.
The regime of Tel Aviv, which remains a strategic ally of Washington, continues to beat the war drum, multiplying the threats against the Lebanese Hezbollah. Israeli authorities continue to encourage the United States to disarm Hezbollah.
To this end, they asked US senators to assess Hezbollah’s military capabilities and to learn about the Lebanese movement’s weapons depots.
It has been more than 20 years since the United States listed Hezbollah on the list of “terrorist organizations” as part of a policy that protects Israel.
Recalling the appointment, the anti-Hezbollah bill urges Washington to strengthen the presence of the UN’s interim forces in Lebanon, UNIFIL, to put pressure on the Resistance movement and stem its military and ballistic progress.
In addition, the text questions the effectiveness of UNIFIL and thus updates the strong reservations of the United States and Israel on the implementation of 1701: the last renewal of the UNIFIL mandate in August 2017 by the UN Security Council had seen a stand-off between these two countries and France in particular, around the expansion of UNIFIL’s powers in southern Lebanon, so as to involve it in the disarmament process of UNIFIL.. This Israeli-American impulse, which others thought was conducive to destabilizing the border rather than mitigating the threat, eventually failed.
