Iran ordered its Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah not to respond to a recent alleged Israeli strike against targets in Syria, Israel’s NRG  news website reported on Wednesday.

As of yet, Hezbollah hasn’t even issued a verbal response to the attack, also a result of strict Iranian orders, since Tehran wants to avoid any escalation with Israel at this time, according to the report.

Apparently, Iran fears a conflict between Hezbollah, which receives extensive Iranian funding and assistance, and Israel, which is the most vehement and vocal opponent to the nuclear deal sought by world powers and Iran that could unfreeze up to $150 billion in Iranian assets.

Additionally, Hezbollah is currently heavily engaged in fighting alongside the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad against rapidly advancing rebels and can ill afford to open a second front against Israel.
