Nasrallah threatens retaliation in future war with Israel

Hezbollah march

Hezbollah's Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has stated that if Lebanon comes under attack from Israel that Hezbollah will hit back at Israel's infrastructure, such as their oil refineries and in particular Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv.

"If you hit our ports, we will bomb your ports, and if you hit our oil refineries, we will bomb your oil refineries," Nasrallah was quoted as saying.

This comes only days after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad stated that Damascus would stand by Beirut should Israel launch another war on Lebanon in which Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak responded by stating that Syria should clinch a peace deal with Israel or find itself in a "full-fledged war" with Tel Aviv in which the Assad "family will lose power" on top of a military defeat!

Hezbollah was formed and trained after the Israeli invasion of Lebanon back in 1982 by Iran's Islamic Guards and have last fought against Israel in a six week war back in 2006 after the abduction of two Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah.
