Hezbollah says doesn't want war with Israel but not afraid of one

The leader of Hezbollah said on Friday his group did not want war with Israel but was ready for one and had the right to respond to Israeli "aggression" in any time and place.



Beirut: The leader of Hezbollah said on Friday his group did not want war with Israel but was ready for one and had the right to respond to Israeli "aggression" in any time and place.

"We do not want a war but we are not afraid of it and we must distinguish between the two and the Israelis must also understand this very well," Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said.

Nasrallah was speaking at an event to commemorate the deaths of six Hezbollah fighters and an Iranian general killed by an Israeli air strike in Syria on Jan. 18. The Iranian-backed Hezbollah retaliated on Wednesday with a rocket attack that killed two Israeli soldiers on the frontier with Lebanon.
