Retaliation against Israel for Qantar’s death ‘inevitable’

TEHRAN, Dec. 28 (MNA) – Head of Lebanese Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, vowed vengeance on Israel on Sun. for Israel’s killing of their top commander Samir Qantar in Syria.

Nasrallah made the remark on Sunday in a lengthy televised address during a ceremony to mark a week since Qantar’s assassination in an Israeli airstrike in a residential quarter of Damascus. He warned Israelis to brace themselves for a response either inside or outside Israel, while noting that the response was “now up to the resistance fighters.”

The Hezbollah chief further maintained that Israel is using the chaos created by the Syrian conflict to legitimize its occupation of the Golan Heights which Israel had unilaterally seized from Syria in 1981, calling on resistance fighters to unite and push Israel out of the Golan Heights.

Nasrallah then expressed his surprise over Israel’s hypocrisy in claiming to be fighting terrorism and that foreign countries and certain Arab states actually recognize it.

“Some Arab countries are seeking to internalize despair at fighting the Zionists and liberating the occupied Palestinian territories,” he said.

He stressed, however, that “natural equations indicate that the Zionist regime is going to be wiped out",  if “all efforts in Syria, Iraq and other countries where conflicts are taking place were joined together."

Iran has strongly condemned the assassination of Hezbollah top commander Samir Qantar, of the Palestine Liberation Front, as “the most recent Zionist organized and state-sponsored terrorism."
