Hezbollah Leader Threatens 'Surprise' Attacks Against Israel

(MENAFN- IANS) Beirut, May 25 (IANS) Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has threatened to launch "surprise" attacks against Israel after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he has "surprising" military plans for Lebanon.

"You must expect surprises from our resistance," the Hezbollah leader said during a televised speech on Friday.

Nasrallah also claimed that "the resistance" is well-prepared for any surprising attacks from Israel, saying they have "studied all hypotheses and scenarios", Xinhua news agency reported.

In a meeting with several Israeli generals on Thursday, Netanyahu said Israel has "detailed, important, and even surprising plans for the North," namely the country's northern neighbour Lebanon.

"We are constantly in action on the northern front," Netanyahu said, adding Israel has "eliminated hundreds" of Hezbollah members.

Tensions along the Lebanon-Israel border escalated on Oct. 8, 2023, following a barrage of rockets launched by Hezbollah toward Israel in solidarity with Hamas' attack on Israel the day before. Israel then retaliated by firing heavy artillery toward southeastern Lebanon.
