Nasrallah: “Israel is manipulating the situation in Syria in the worst possible way to suit its own interests”

Beirut, 30/1/2015 ~ “The Israeli enemy must understand that resistance will no longer heed the ‘rules of engagement’ as it is its ethical and legal right to repel any aggression”, Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said.

Nasrallah’s strident message came during a festival held Friday in honor of the resistance martyrs in Quneitra.

“From now on, when a fighter from resistance is assassinated, the Israeli enemy will be held responsible and thus resistance will have the right to respond wherever and whenever it sees fit, and it whichever way it deems appropriate,” he added.

Nasrallah indicated that resistance “had not had second thoughts about the necessity of retaliation, even if things went to extremes.”

Nasrallah pointed to a state of confusion in Israel following the assassination of resistance fighters which, he said, prompted it to declare a state of emergency and to send threats via different countries.

“The resistance operation happened in broad daylight and came at the height of the Israeli alert, leaving Israel at a loss as to what really happened,” he said.

“Unlike Israel,” Nasrallah went on to say,” resistance claimed responsibility for the retaliatory operation soon after it was carried out.”

Hezbollah’s Secretary-General considered that Israel is manipulating the situation in Syria in the worst possible way to suit its own interests, highlighting the support it provides for takfiri terrorist organizations.



Sayyed Nasrallah Announces New Era with ’Israel’: No Rules of Engagement, Ready for Any War

Beirut, 30/1/2015 ~ Hizbullah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered Friday a speech in which he delivered a strong message to the Zionist entity.

Sayyed Nasrallah spoke during a ceremony held by Hizbullah in Sayyed Shuhada Complex, in Dahiyeh [Beirut’s Southern Suburb], to pay tribute to the great Quneitera martyrs.

Thanks to Resistance People, LA

At the beginning of his speech, His Eminence welcomed and thanked the Resistance people for their participation in the Martyrs’ commemoration.

On this level, Sayyed Nasrallah thanked the Lebanese people, the Resistance’s supporters and all those who stood by the resistance, took part in the martyrs’ funeral and expressed their sympathy and support for any decision taken by the resistance. “They stood with their known covenant and steadfastness so that we must tell them every hour, ‘O you the most honorable and purest people.”

“I would like to condole our masters, the families of martyrs, as their beloved sons were elevated to Divine high grades away from this false life.”
In parallel, he saluted the families of the martyrs and thanked all those who offered their condolences to the Resistance. “I salute the supporters of the Resistance, who stood by us the moment the Quneitra strike took place.”

“My thanks to all who shared with us the solace and expressed support, whether directly or through letters, or any other way from Lebanon to Palestine to Syria, Iraq, Jordan and throughout the Arab and Muslim worlds and to all those who celebrated the Resistance operation in the Shebaa Farms,” he added.

Moreover, the Resistance Leader dedicated his special thanks to the Resistance, men who were up to the responsibility of the Quneitra criminal attack.
Sayyed Nasrallah also commented on the recent terrorist attack that hit the Lebanese Army in Ras Baalbek by saying: “It is our duty, as we commemorate the resistance’s martyrs, to stand in respect in front of the Lebanese Army’s martyrs in Ras Baalbek, who fell while defending Lebanon and the Bekaa Valley in the face of the terrorist groups that prove every day that they are dedicated to the “Israeli” scheme..”

Unity of Blood to Face “Israel”

Moving to the “Israeli” attack in Syrian Quneitera, His Eminence hailed and saluted the Resistance martyrs. “The Quneitra martyrs represent a number of the Resistance’s generations.”

To the martyrs, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “We congratulate you for being blessed to fall as martyrs. We pray that Al-Mighty God grants us the same honor.”
According to Sayyed Nasrallah: “The mix of Lebanese and Iranian blood on Syrian soil in Quneitra represent the unity of our battle and destiny. This is the secret of the resistance, and this reflects the affiliation of the whole school of Jihad and the families of martyr.”

“When the governments , and political currents entered divisions among our nation, we entered the era of defeats. However, when the blood was united, we entered the era of victories,” his Eminence mentioned.

“Since 1948, our region has been suffering from a cancerous growth called the Zionist entity,” he reiterated, noting that “in recent years, “Israel” has resorted to the same arrogant practices it had adopted decades ago.”
Sayyed Nasrallah recalled that “Israel” carried out a bloody aggression against Gaza and it has violated the most basic of Palestinian rights.

“In Syria, he explained that “Israel” has been backing the extremist groups and shelling regime positions under various excuses. In Lebanon, it does not recognize resolution 1701 and has committed thousands of violations against the country’s sovereignty.”

Sayyed Nasrallah continued: “”Israel” believes that it can threaten all armies and governments in the region whenever it pleases and without being deterred. It is benefiting from the divisions in the region and the complete absence of the stances of the Arab countries, especially the so-called Arab League.”

Slamming the Arab inaction, Hizbullah Secretary General said: “There is no such thing as an Arab League or an independent Arab stance when it comes to “Israel”. Arab positions and arms are available when it comes to Yemen, Iraq, and Syria.”

Quneitra Assassination

“Given this reality in the region, the Quneitra airstrike took place on January 18,” Sayyed Nasrallah revealed some aspects of the “Israeli” attack. “An “Israeli” helicopter targeted two civilian vehicles transporting our seven Mujahedeen brothers in the area. Our brothers in Quneitra were martyred in a clear assassination, in a decision taken by the Zionist entity. Some reports mentioned that the head of the opposition in the Zionist entity was informed of the critical decision.”

On this level, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “”Israel” has not yet claimed the responsibility for the assassination believing that Hizbullah is weak and would hide the news of airstrike and martyrs.”

However, according to His Eminence, “”Israel” was surprised that Hizbullah announced the name of its martyrs within a short time of the strike..We are here in front of a clear and public assassination, similar to that targeted our teacher, Martyr Sayyed Abbas al-Mousawi, his wife and his child, and there is not a coincidence or a mistake in such an operation.”

Al-Nusra, “Israel’s” Ally

He further rejected all “Israeli” claims that the Resistance men lost their road or were preparing for an operation. “Thousands of al-Nusra Front members are present along the border with the Zionist entity in the occupied Golan Heights. Neither Netanyahu nor Yaalon are concerned by the presence of al-Nusra on the Zionist entity’s border.”

“”Israel”, however, felt threatened by six Hizbullah members and an Iranian general passing in civilian cars, without missiles, through Quneitra,” he highlighted.

Sayyed Nasrallah also uncovered that “Our martyrs were at a point located 6 km from the border as two thousand al-Nusra militants separated between our martyrs and the “Israeli”.”

“The Takfiri armed groups, especially those in the Golan Heights, are a natural ally of the “Israeli” army, even if they raised the Islamic flag.”

“The facts say that there is an “Israeli” decision to target this group, we do not know when the decision was made, at the highest levels in the enemy’s entity and was waiting for the hour for implementation, and that was on Sunday.”

To all those who criticized the Resistance, the Resistance Leader vowed: “We can’t and won’t forget “Israel”. We can’t and won’t forget the Palestinian people.”
Sayyed Nasrallah further said: “After the assassination, “Israel” sought to make Hizbullah get confused, embarrassed and suffer the loss.”

Moreover, His Eminence shed light that “in the assassination there exists a painful side and an emotional humanitarian dimension. Yes, we suffer, mourn, and cry and on one of the days I cried like any other father, away from media.”

“Israel” on One foot

“On the day of assassination, “Israel” immediately anticipated a Hizbullah retaliation to the Quneitra assassination and therefore took all precautions.”
“We did not hesitate in making the decision that “Israel” should be punished for its crime in Quneitra even if it meant going to an all-out war,” he revealed, pointing out that the Resistance immediately began planning its retaliation.

According to Hizbullah Secretary General, “The first achievements of these martyrs is that from Sunday until Wednesday afraid “Israel” stood on a leg and half.”

“We had no hesitation in taking the decision that “Israel” should be punished for its crime in Qunietra. We prepared ourselves for the worst case scenario when we took the decision of response.”

His Eminence clarified that “the resistance carried out its Shebaa operation in broad daylight in spite of the fact that “Israel” was at its highest level of preparation.”

Emphasizing some aspects of the victory reached by the Heroic Resistance operation, Sayyed Nasrallah mentioned: “In the result, they assassinated us in broad daylight at around 11:30 and we killed them in broad daylight, 11:25 to 11:45 The “Israelis” targeted 2 cars, we targeted more than two cars. They attacked us by missiles and we did the same. They were killed and we fell as martyrs. “Israel” did not claim responsibility for the Quneitra attack, but Hizbullah announced the responsibility for the Shebaa operation soon after it took place.”
To the enemy, Sayyed Nasrallah sent a clear and strong message, “You tried us. Don’t test us.”

“I salute the heroic Resistance men, who carried out the Shebaa Farms operation.”

Moving to the “Israeli” front, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “”Israel” discovered that its leadership’s assessment of the situation on the ground was idiotic.The “Israeli” people discovered that their leadership put them on the brink of war, jeopardizing their economy and security.”

To “Israel”: You Tried, Don’t Test

“”Israel” must understand very well that this resistance is not and won’t be deterred, but it is wise.”

To the Zionist entity, His Eminence’s message was direct: “The resistance no longer cares about rules of engagement and we do not recognize them in confronting the enemy. We have the right to confront the enemy at any time, place, or manner.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also mentioned: “Wednesday was the most important message to “Israel” that do not mistake the calculations. I’m not talking about psychological warfare, but the mere truth, which we expressed in the battlefield.”

“We have learned that “Israel” wants to swallow the Shebaa Farms operation and he contented himself with what was done, but we understand that “Israel” wants to escape from the military confrontation and go after the men responsible for Wednesday’s operation. Accordingly, we used to distinguish between the assassination and military confrontation. We used to respond to any military action. From now on, if any cadre or member of Hizbullah is assassinated, then we will blame it on “Israel” and reserve the right to respond to it whenever and however we choose,” he said.

His Eminence also assured: “The “Israeli” army is unable to face the resistance and this what was proven in the field. This is “Israel”, which we had defeated in 2006 and in Gaza.”

“As we had already said, “Israel” is weaker than the spider’s web and will not be other than this,” he said, and noted that “the Resistance in Lebanon is in its full readiness and presence.”

Sayyed Nasrallah concluded: “Since 1982, we continued to say that the resistance is the answer and that the martyrs are the source of victory.”



Sayyed Nasrallah: No More “Rules of Engagement” in Conflict with Israel

Beirut, 30/1/2015 ~ Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah announced Friday that after the Quneitra operation Hezbollah was no longer concerned with the so-called “rules of engagement” with the Israeli enemy in any coming battle or assault, and clarified that the resistance will be responding to any violation in the time and place that it chose.

Secretary General put new rules for the confrontation with the Zionist enemy in a statement he delivered during a ceremony in honor of the brave martyrs who were killed in Quneitra Sunday, after he reassured that “the resistance in Lebanon is in its full preparation and readiness”.

His eminence addressed the families of the martyrs, offering them his condolences and congratulating them for this high rank that their beloved ones had reached. He further thanked all those who stood in solidarity with Hezbollah and offered their condolences especially in Palestine, Syria, Iraq, and Jordan, and all around the Arab and Islamic world.

Remembering the Quneitra martyrs, Sayyed Nasrallah expressed his compassion and sincere love for them, stating: “We congratulate and envy you and pray for God that He gives us this honor someday… You have left behind this world and its concerns and moved to the world of true happiness…”

“This group of martyrs is consisted of three generations, and with the martyrdom of General Dadi and Abu Issa, We can see that the leaders are always present with the soldiers, and this is the secret of the resistance. This group of martyrs which consists of sons and relatives of martyrs tell the enemy when it threatens them: Do you threaten me with death? well, death for us is a norm and Allah honors us with martyrdom.”

“These families carry this ideology and the mixture of this Lebanese blood with the Iranian blood on the Syrian territories symbolizes the common cause, destiny, and battle which brings us victory…” Sayyed Nasrallah stressed, pointing out that “Quneitra martyrs prove to the world that the mujahedeen of Hezbollah, unlike what some satellites try to say, are still on the borders and will stay on the front lines because nothing in this world can stand between them and what they love.”

His eminence indicated that “our region has been suffering at least since 1948 from a cancer called “Israel”, a cancerous cell, a terrorist state, and a corruption germ… It has always been like that, but in the past couple of years it returned to its old method and added to its corruption and arrogance… as it still threatens, occupies, destroys, and assassinates… Israel today thinks it can do all that without anyone stopping it,” and denounced the absence of the so-called “Arab League” considering that it had not played any useful role ever.

Explaining the Quneitra operation, Sayyed Nasrallah stated that “on Sunday, Israeli aircrafts targeted two vehicles carrying seven brothers and killed them all while they were in an inspection tour in Quneitra. The decision was taken between the Israeli PM’s special staff, and the opposition leader was informed about it, so there was an Israeli decision to target this group, and the operation was very much similar to the one in which former Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Abbas Al-Moussawi and his wife and son were assassinated.”

“Israel did not claim responsibility for Sunday’s attack immediately as it might have thought that Hezbollah would keep silent, and will not announce about it or accuse the Israeli thinking that we are now in a weak state among our supporters. However, the first surprise for the Israeli was that Hezbollah instantly announced about the operation and stated the names of the martyrs only a couple of hours after…”

Falsifying all the Israeli claims that this group was present in Quneitra to wage an attack on Israel or to prepare for an attack, Sayyed Nasrallah asked: “Thousands of “Nusra Front” fighters are present with their weapons in Golan. What is Nusra Front? It is the Syrian version of Al-Qaeda, the organization labeled as terrorist by the entire world… and it has a wide military presence in the Golan. How come Netanyahu is not worried about that? How come Yaalon is not worried about that, and is instead protecting them, opening hospitals for them, and paying them visits? Well, Israel which was not worried about the presence of all those on its borders, took a dangerous decision because it was worried from the presence of two cars carrying seven men that only have their personal weapons.”

From this point, his eminence stressed that Hezbollah will not forget about Israel as many want it to, and it will never forget about the Palestinian people, neither will its children and its grandchildren forget about them.

His eminence emphasized the painful aspect in the loss of these martyrs. However, he assured that we only regard that as a “divine blessing, and this is what the Israeli must understand, and just like Sayyeda Zeinab said when asked what she thought about the martyrdom of her brother: I haven’t seen but beauty!”

As for some analyses that thought that Iran or Syria would try to prevent Hezbollah from responding to the attack due to their international interests, Sayyed Nasrallah assured that “none of our friends accept that we get humiliated or get killed and just sit and watch… and Israel must know that it cannot kill people and go to sleep peacefully as if what it killed were just bugs!”

Hezbollah secretary general reassured that since the first moment after the operation, the resistance was studying the revenge, and it did not hesitate for a second because “Israel had to be punished and this was worth sacrificing”.

“The first achievement of these martyrs was that Israel since Sunday until Wednesday stayed tense and alert as it awaited the response of Hezbollah,” his eminence said, adding that “on Wednesday, was the divine blessing, and the operation took place during the peak of the Israeli readiness and mobilization , yet Israel did not have a clue about what was happening, even after it was over, and this is a message for the friends before the enemy.”

“In conclusion, they killed us in the middle of the day (11:30 am), in return, we killed them in the middle of the day (11:25 am), two vehicles and some extras, in return for two vehicles, deaths and injuries in return for martyrs, missiles in return for missiles, there is only one difference between the Israeli and us, the first is that they are cowards and half men because they only fight from behind shields and attack from the back, while the men of the resistance fight face to face. Moreover, the Israeli did not dare to claim responsibility for his operation, while the resistance immediately claimed responsibility after its operation.”

Sayyed Nasrallah expressed gratitude for the resistance fighters and leadership, specifically those who carried out the Shebaa operation, and assured that the Israeli had only achieved failure and regret until now, while the resistance achieved victory, seeing that the Israeli enemy is incapable of confronting the resistance on ground.

Finally, his eminence reassured that the armed Takfiri groups, specifically those in Golan, are allies to Israel and they are similar to Lahad Army that was in south Lebanon.

He added that the resistance did not want war, however, it did not fear it, and imposed a new equation in the conflict against the Zionist enemy: “After Quneitra operation, the resistance is no longer concerned with the so-called “rules of engagement” or with confronting aggression and assassination, it no longer recognizes disassociating fields, and it is our legitimate and legal right to confront any violation at any time and any place and in any way.”

As for Israel’s decision to avoid any war, “we are aware that the Israeli is trying to escape a military confrontation and will head to look for the men who humiliated him on Wednesday to assassinate them. Based on that, I say that in the past we used to differentiate in our response on an assassination or a military act, but today if any resistance member is killed, we will consider it our right to respond in the appropriate time and place,” Sayyed Nasrallah announced.
