(Worthy News) - Russian Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin warned of a possible conflict between Israel and Lebanon and accused the US of inciting "new conflicts" in the Middle East during an interview in the Russian news agency Sputnik on Saturday.

"As for a conflict between Israel and Lebanon, nothing can be predicted with certainty," he said, adding that America's influence in the region was "negative."

Zasypkin lauded the efforts made in Syria by the terrorist group Hezbollah, which he described as fighting "alongside Russia and Iran" against terror and taking "a responsible approach," including calling on Lebanese political factions to work together. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
