While acknowledging the unpredictability of whether U.S. President Donald Trump will call for airstrikes inside Syria, Hezbollah's leader Friday said the group and its allies are ready for anything. Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah also said that Israel committed a "historic mistake" and has now dragged itself into a direct conflict with Iran after last week's airstrike on the T-4 air base in Syria's Homs. In response to an alleged toxic gas attack in the rebel-held town of Douma that medics and rescuers said killed at least 40 people on April 8, Trump took to Twitter to threaten to fire "new and smart" missiles at Syria. Nasrallah ridiculed the tweets about the potential strike and said Trump was "ignorant, unaware," and unpredictable.Shortly after the Hezbollah leader's speech, Israel fired back at Nasrallah and Iran, claiming an Iranian drone shot down inside Israel in February was on a mission to attack the Jewish state.
