The recent visit of Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah to the Bekaa Valley and his meeting with other prominent figures from his party is striking for its timing, form and content.Crucially, it reflects how much importance the party places on the war Lebanon is fighting with ISIS and the Nusra Front on its mountainous eastern border, even though that battle may be less virulent than Hezbollah's historical conflict with Israel.Hezbollah knows that uniting Nusra and ISIS into one front fighting Hezbollah and opening other fronts in the south would be a game-changer that would work to Israel's advantage.Through the Shebaa operation, Hezbollah was confirming its right to attack Israel, according to a politician who is close to the party.
