Hezbollah Leader Warns Israel Not To Attack Lebanon

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, in a speech delivered today, warned that should Israel launch an attack on Lebanon, Hezbollah will wage the war without limit. The speech was originally scheduled to be on the observance of the fourth anniversary of the U.S. drone assassination in Baghdad of IRGC Gen. Qassem Soleimani, but was colored by the assassination in Beirut, yesterday, of senior Hamas official Saleh Arouri. Nasrallah condemned the killing of Arouri and vowed that the crime will not go unpunished.

Nasrallah went through a lengthy defense of Hamas’s Oct. 7 actions, arguing that they helped bring the Palestinian cause before the eyes of the world, and also tarnished the image of the U.S. and Israel. In reality, however, the Oct. 7 attack has served as the provocation that Israel has used to justify its ongoing genocide in Gaza.

As for the Israel-Lebanon front, Nasrallah said that Hezbollah has been fighting while taking into account Lebanon’s interests, which is causing the Resistance movement to pay the price with the blood of its Resistance fighters. However, Nasrallah stressed, in the case of a full-scale war being declared on Lebanon, “We will have no limits, no restrictions, no rules of engagement, or boundaries.”

“Whoever might think about going to war with us will regret such a decision. War with us will be tremendously costly,” he stressed. “If war is declared against us, national interest will require us to fight the war until the very end.”
