Nasrallah: Assassination of Al-Arouri will not go unanswered

Secretary-General of the Lebanese Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah said, Wednesday night, that "Israel tried to make Nasrallah's image through the assassination of Saleh Al-Arouri, deputy head of the political bureau of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), in Beirut yesterday, Tuesday, after it failed to achieve it in Gaza."

This came in a public speech to mark the fourth anniversary of the 2020 assassination of IRGC Qods Force commander Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy head of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Commission, in a U.S. airstrike near Baghdad.

Nasrallah added, "We mourn the martyrdom of Sheik Saleh Al-Arouri and his companions in the Israeli aggression on the southern suburb of Beirut," saying that "the crime of assassinating Al-Arouri is serious and will not remain without response and punishment, and between us and them is the field and the days."

He stressed that the Al-Aqsa Flood, launched by the Ezzedin Al-Qassam Brigades, dealt a severe blow to the normalization process with the Israeli occupation, and the Israeli society also lost confidence in the army and its political leadership, which affects the essence of the Zionist entity's existence.

Nasrallah stressed that the Israeli air force failed to resolve the battle in the Gaza Strip, and that three months of fighting, steadfastness and sacrifice proved to the occupation that the Palestinian people are determined to liberate their land.

rootless fighting
He explained that the resistance in Lebanon, on October 8, when the front was opened with the Israeli occupation, did not submit to the Israeli deterrence and is more daring and prepared for confrontation and aggression.

"So far, we have been fighting at the front with controlled accounts, which is why we are paying a price in the lives of our young people," he said. "But if the enemy thinks about waging war on Lebanon, then our fight will be without borders, roofs, rules or controls."

Nasrallah stressed that what is happening in the West Bank, Gaza, Lebanon and Yemen will topple the concept of safe haven in the "Israeli occupation entity," stressing that the land of Palestine is from the river to the sea for the Palestinians alone.
