Nasrallah declares Israel “will definitely cease to exist” in next war

The Hizballah leader, in his most vituperative speech against Israel ever, said Friday, Feb. 22: “Arab opposition, including Syria, and popular opposition will eliminate Israel; its armed forces will be defeated and Israel will be left with no army. We will fight as we have never fought before, confronting the Israeli army with of a type of combat it has never before experienced.”
Hassan Nasrallah pledged “Mughniyeh’s blood would not go unpunished, declaring,” He was killed in a pre-emptive Israeli strike, an open war.”
debkafile: On Feb. 20, Israeli chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Gaby Ashkenazi indicated Hizballah planned to seize on an Israeli ground offensive against Gazan missiles to launch a revenge attack in the north and force Israel to fight on two fronts. He told graduating IDF officers: “It is up to us to achieve a quick victory in every confrontation.”
Nasrallah went on to say: “Israelis want to chop off the heads of the resistance leaders. We’ll take the decision when to defend ourselves and where… We won’t surrender because we have tens of thousands of Imad Mughniyeh.”
Turning to his quarrel with Lebanon’s government factions, Nasrallah accused “the majority of waiting for an Israeli war to finish Hizballah off.”
