BEIRUT (Reuters) – The chief of Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah stated that whereas his group had chosen to answer Israeli air strikes on open land, it might escalate with a special technique in future.
Hezbollah fired rockets in direction of Israeli forces on Friday, drawing retaliatory fireplace from Israel into south Lebanon in a 3rd day of cross-border forwards and backwards amid wider tensions with Iran.
Hezbollah needed to indicate that Israeli air strikes can be responded to and in an acceptable method, Nasrallah stated, including that the response could possibly be in any open land in “Northern occupied Palestine,” Galilee, or the Golan Heights.
