The leader of the Hizbullah terror, Hassan Nasrallah, threatened on Thursday to senior Israeli officials. Nasrallah made the threats during a speech at a ceremony in memory of former Hizbullah leader Abbas Musawi and arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh.
At this point I want to remind that Imad Mughniyeh's blood will haunt them. We will get revenge on them, but we won’thurt soldiers or diplomats. It would be shameful for us to avenge the death of our commander by killing simple Israelis.”
He added, “They (Israel) know very well who we are targeting. They are taking precautionary measures and I say to them today - beware. As long as blood flows in our veins, we will continue to operate until the day we get revenge for Imad Mughniyeh. This will be a respectable revenge.”
Mughniyeh was killed in a car-bomb attack in Damascus in February of 2008, reportedly while in the midst of planning major terrorist attacks in moderate Arab countries.
Both Hizbullah and Syria blamed Israel for killing Mughniyeh, and Hizbullah has promised to avenge his death.He promised to keep fighting Israel because it “occupies Palestine and the holy places for Christians and Muslims, works to Judaize Jerusalem and causes suffering among the Palestinians.” He added that the Zionist project is a “danger which is imposed on Middle Eastern countries and the peoples living in it, regardless of their religious affiliation, race and culture of those nations and those countries. We need to locate this danger and bring it down.”
