Hizballah chief Hassan Nasrallah said Sunday: “Revenge for the death of Samir Quntar is on the way… The orders have been given and execution is in the hands of resistance fighters on the ground… We are not afraid of consequences and threats. We shall not let the blood of our Jihadi fighters and brothers to be spilled anywhere in the world.” Nasrallah went on to say: “The Israelis are worried and rightly so – those on the borders [soldiers] and those inside the country… They decided that eliminating such an important target is worth the adventure and the sacrifice…They thought that al-Quntar is not that important to Hizballah.”
The Hizballah leader maintained that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu thought he could take advantage of the Syrian war to win international recognition for Israel's annexation of the Golan. “As we commemorate al-Quntar, we must revive the spirit of sacrifice because that is a key condition of the rise of the people, the persistence of resistance and the creation of the future."
Nasrallah called on the Palestinians to stop waiting for pro-Western Arab nations to take action, or for American operations in concert with Arab armies.
