Re: Hezbollah to Israel: Any attack will be reciprocated

Lebanon’s Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Tuesday warned Israel against intimidation, alluding to Israeli combat drills that took place earlier this month, warning any attack would be reciprocated, Reuters reported.

“We are not looking for a confrontation but we don’t leave the blood of our martyrs. If a confrontation happens we will respond to it … if you attack our cities we will attack yours,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech.

The Israeli army held large scale exercises along the northern border with Lebanon on 9-10 February.

They said at the time the exercise would examine lessons learnt from operational activities that took place along the Lebanese border over the summer and prepare troops for a variety of scenarios including readiness for “combat days”.

“I want to also warn that these threats we are hearing in recent days – combat days and what not – I want to warn that this game of combat days is a dangerous one,” Nasrallah said.

“No one can guarantee it would not lead to war.”

Israel’s air force also said on Monday it began a “surprise exercise” to improve combat readiness along the country’s northern frontier to last until Wednesday.
