Russia Says Israel Has No Right to Self-Defense, Russia’s Wagner Group to Supply Hezbollah with Air Defense
Israel has no right to defend itself as it is an occupying power, Russia’s representative to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzya, said at an emergency special session of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, November 1.
“The only thing they can muster is continued pronouncements about Israel’s supposed right to self-defense, although as an occupying power, it does not have that power as confirmed by the advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice handed down in 2004,” said the Russian representative.
Despite stating that Israel does not have the right to defend itself, Nebenzya proceeded to state that Israel does have the right to “ensure its security” and “to fight terrorism.”
Further, US Intelligence has learned that the pro-Russian Wagner Mercenary Group may be supplying Hezbollah with an air-defense system, according to American media. US officials said that the White House has still yet to confirm if the SA-22 system, which uses anti-aircraft missiles and air defense guns to intercept aerial threats like aircraft and drones, will be used in Lebanon.
US officials are unable to confirm that the system has been sent yet but noted a positioned aircraft carrier used to deter Hezbollah in the Eastern Mediterranean from opening Israel’s northern front. Wagner has a presence in Syria, where many Hezbollah fighters have been found recently. (JPost / VFI News)
