In response to the killing of Hamas deputy chairman Saleh al-Arouri in Lebanese capital, the leader of the Lebanese military group Hezbollah has warned that the entire country will be at stake if the Israeli transgressions remain un-responded.
For a second time in seven days, Hassan Nasrallah reiterated that the group should not be passive about an infraction of this level during a broadcast speech. He declared that the process implies that all of Lebanon—all towns, villages, and characters—will get exposed.”
“Al-Arouri’s murder… will undoubtedly not go without reaction and punishment,” he continued. Al-Arouri was assassinated last Tuesday in what is believed to have been an Israeli strike on a Hezbollah position in a Beirut neighborhood in the south.
Hezbollah’s chief was speaking while Lebanon complained to the UN Security Council about al-Arouri’s murder. He referred to it as the most perilous stage of Israeli aggression on the country.
In a January 4 complaint, which claimed that Israel bombed Syria using Lebanese territory, it employed six missiles in the operation that murdered al-Arouri.
Nasrallah has previously made threats of vengeance. He had issued a warning to Israel on Wednesday not to prolong the conflict, stating that if Israel decided to attack Lebanon, there would be no limits and no regulations to the combat by his organization. Nasrallah declared, “In one word, he will regret it if he thinks of going to war with us.”
Al-Arouri’s murder, according to Nasrallah, will not go unpunished or unanswered. The battlefield will react when Hezbollah fighters employ the “right place and the right time.”
Furthermore, Nasrallah declared that the Israelis aren’t disclosing the real amount of their deaths, and the annihilation of their supplies, and that “We have full knowledge of where Israeli military positions are.”
Seize the Opportunity
Hassan Nasrallah stated that a “key part” of the conflict was Lebanese southern border with Israel. The group’s present border operations have given Lebanon a “historic opportunity” to reclaim the area that Israel has been occupying. He continued by saying that there is a “historic opportunity” for the Islamic opposition in Iraq to end US involvement there.
Hezbollah militants, according to Nasrallah, carried out some 670 assaults along the border between Lebanon and Israel. The group also claimed to have smashed a huge quantity of Israeli trucks and armor.
He said that the Israeli army will shift to Lebanese soils if it succeeded in achieving its military objectives in Gaza. Over 140 Hezbollah militants and scores of civilians from Lebanon have died as a consequence of ongoing fighting between the Israeli military and Hezbollah since October 7, when Israel began its attack on the Gaza Strip.
Israel and armed organizations in southern Lebanon, especially Hezbollah, have been exchanging messages back and forth over the border, which is monitored by the UN.
