Hezbollah pledges response to al-Arouri’s assassination

Secretary General of Lebanon’s Hezbollah Resistance Movement, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, has promised revenge for the assassination of deputy Hamas leader Saleh al-Arouri by the Israeli regime.

The assassination of Saleh al-Arouri will not go unanswered and unpunished, Nasrallah said on Friday, adding that all of Lebanon will become exposed if no response is given to the Israeli killing of al-Arouri.

He made the comments in a ceremony three days after al-Arouri, one of the most senior members of Palestine’s Hamas Resistance Movement, was killed in an Israeli drone strike in a Hezbollah stronghold in Beirut, Lebanon.

Hezbollah operations

The Hezbollah chief also spoke about the military operations his movement has been conducting at the border in southern Lebanon in support of Palestinian resistance fighters in Gaza. Those operations began on October 8, a day after the Israeli regime unleashed its war on Gaza.

According to Nasrallah, Hezbollah has conducted more than 670 operations since October 8, repeatedly targeting 48 “border positions of the Israeli occupiers.”

He said that the operations have forced the Israeli regime’s military forces to retreat and left a large number of Israeli tanks and armored vehicles destroyed.

The regime however hides the real number of its casualties and facts regarding the material damage inflicted on it, Nasrallah said.

Yemen Red Sea operations

The Hezbollah secretary general also spoke about the military operations, which Yemeni armed forces have been conducting on Israeli-linked ships in the Red Sea over the past several weeks in support of Palestinians in war-hit Gaza.

He said that Yemen has now become part of international equations and has revealed the true nature of the US through its operations.

Nasrallah also said that more Yemeni groups are now supporting the operations, and therefore, the US should realize that millions of Yemenis would stand up against it in case of any aggression against their country.

Nasrallah made that comment in reference to a US move last month to form an international coalition to confront the Yemeni military operations.
