Hezbollah terror group leader threatens residents of northern Israel ‘not to rest’
In a televised speech from the underground bunker where he has been hiding from Israel since 2006, Hezbollah terror group leader Hassan Nasrallah threatened residents of northern Israel “not to rest”, after two drones manufactured in Iran ‘crashed’ in Beirut.
The terror group leader said that the drones were targeting a specific location in a Hezbollah-dominated suburb in Beirut, yet noted that they had not been shot down.
Nasrallah threatened that his terror group would shoot down Israeli drones if they appear in Lebanon’s airspace.
Nasrallah also threatened the IDF at the border with an imminent response if they were to eliminate any of Hezbollah’s terrorists in Syria, revealing also that two members of the terror group had been eliminated Saturday night in the airstrikes on Damascus.
Meanwhile, during Nasrallah’s speech, a field commander in the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group was eliminated in a strike by an unidentified drone along a highway near the Syria-Iraq border.
According to local sources, unidentified drones attacked two vehicles of a local Iranian-backed Shiite terror group. Six terrorists who were traveling in two trucks were eliminated as well.
The assassination comes just hours after Israeli strikes foiled a plot by Iranian al-Quds force and Shiite terror groups to carry out drone attacks from Syrian soil.
The IDF on Sunday said the explosive-laden drones that Iran planned to use against Israel on Saturday night were flown into Syria from Tehran several weeks ago, along with Iranian military officials to act as advisers.
Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’s al Quds Force personally oversaw the training, funding, and preparation for the drone attack, Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi said.
