The correspondent was referring to an equation set by Sayyed Nasrallah during a ceremony in January 2015 where Hezbollah was honoring six of his members who were martyred in an Israeli strike on Quneitra.
“From now on, when any Hezbollah cadre or fighter is killed, we will hold ‘Israel’ responsible, it will be our right to respond at any place and time and in any way we find it appropriate,” Sayyed Nasrallah said in a speech on January 30, 2015.
Last year in August, two Hezbollah fighters were martyred in a strike on Syria. The strike was followed by a drone attack on a Hezbollah media office in Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh). The Zionist entity back then stayed on alert for more than a week until Hezbollah staged retaliatory strike on Avivim base on September 1, 2019.
On Wednesday, Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar reported that Hezbollah Resistance groups raised level of readiness in a bid to monitor activity of Israeli occupation soldiers at the border between Lebanon and the occupied territories.
