Lebanon's Hezbollah vows to confront U.S. Middle East plan

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Lebanon's Iran-backed Hezbollah pledged on Friday (May 31) to confront the U.S. Middle East plan that President Donald Trump has touted as "the deal of the century." Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the heavily armed Shi'ite movement, said it was unlikely Washington and its allies would launch a war against Tehran as they would pay a heavy price.

The U.S. military has sent forces, including an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers, to the region to counter what it called "clear indications" of threats from Iran.

The U.S. special envoy for Iran says the steps had deterred Tehran.

But he said that Washington would respond to any attacks with military force.

Nasrallah described a U.S. blueprint to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, led by Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, as a "historic crime" that must be stopped.
