BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a response on Friday to Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s comments regarding Hezbollah’s new precision missiles.
“If they confront us, they will suffer a crushing blow the levels of which they cannot imagine,” Netanyahu said at a Prime Minister event, as quoted by Ynet.
“I heard the arrogant words that came from the Hezbollah chief. This comes from the same man who said after 2006 that if he had known what Israel’s response would be to the abduction of three of our soldiers, he would have thought twice about doing it,” Netanyahu added.
During his speech to commemorate the tenth day of Muharram, Sayyed Nasrallah said that despite Israel’s best attempts to prevent Hezbollah from attaining precision missiles that they have already received them.
“No matter what you do to cut the route [flow of weapons from Iran to Hezbollah via Syria], the matter is over,” Nasrallah said during his Ashura speech.
