Lebanon’s Hezbollah warns of ‘decisive’ response to Israeli expansion of war

Lebanon’s Hezbollah deputy secretary-general Sheikh Naim Qassem has warned the Israeli regime of a “decisive” response in case of expanding the scope of its war on Lebanese soil.

He issued the warning in a ceremony in the capital Beirut on Friday as fire exchanges between the Lebanese resistance movement and Israeli troops intensified over the week following the targeted killing of a senior Hezbollah commander in the country’s south.

Sami Abdallah, better known by the nom the guerre Abu Taleb, was killed along with three other people in the Israeli strikes that targeted a residential building in the southern Lebanese town of Jwaya on Tuesday, Press TV reports.

Sheikh Qassem said the Lebanese resistance had struck several sites in the occupied territories in retaliation for Abdallah’s assassination, and would also respond to any expansion of the Israeli aggression against Lebanon, no matter how limited.

The resistance movement, he said, “targeted barracks, military personnel, and combat sites within a distance of between three and five kilometers and avoided targeting civilians” and engaging in direct military action.

“With the Israeli fear of exceeding the limits that could lead to war, it is trying to seize opportunities and work on limited expansion, but we have a decision that any expansion, no matter how limited, will be met with a decisive response that will… inflict great losses on the Israelis,” Sheikh Qassem added.
