Israel won't Escape Unhurt over Mughniyah

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Hezbollah leader said retaliation for the assassination of the movement's top commander Imad Mughniyah has always been on the table.



Speaking in a press conference on Thursday, Hezbollah Secretary General Seyed Hassan Nasrallah insisted that taking revenge for the murder of Mugniyah is just a matter of time.

"The reaction to Mugniyah's assassination, which will aim to teach the murderers a lesson, is a necessary thing...However, regarding the question of when the revenge will come and what it will be don't expect us to answer that," Nasrallah said according to press tv.

Although Israel denies any involvement in the February 12 assassination, Nasrallah said all the evidence gathered so far indicates that Israel's Mossad service was behind the car bomb attack in Damascus.

"There will never be a day when revenge is behind us," Nasrallah added. "It will always be ahead of us."

Ahead of the first anniversary of the commander's assassination in Damascus, Nasrallah concluded that "Israelis are living in fear of our revenge."

Earlier last week, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered security services to stay on high alert over concerns of an imminent retaliatory attack by the Lebanese movement. The military has put its forces on high alert along Israeli border with Lebanon.
