Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has said that the Lebanese resistance movement will defend the country against any Israeli attack.
“I warn Israelis, resistance will not be silent in case of aggression,” Nasrallah said on Saturday in a televised speech given during a ceremony in southern Beirut to commemorate the Martyrs’ Day.
"Everything we need for the next battle we have in Lebanon and we keep in Lebanon," he said.
Nasrallah denied speculation that Hezbollah has become weak and said the resistance movement is prepared more than ever.
“Lebanon’s resistance movement is fully prepared and ready,” he added.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Hezbollah secretary general also said that resistance is the only choice for Palestinians in their struggle against Israeli occupation.
“Israel is the greatest danger for Palestine and the region,” Nasrallah added.
He said Hezbollah would continue to support Palestinians in order for them to achieve their rights.
Israel violates Lebanon's airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.
Lebanon's government, the Hezbollah resistance movement, and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, known as UNIFIL, have repeatedly condemned the overflights, saying they are in clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 and the country's sovereignty.
UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war of aggression Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on Israel to respect Lebanon's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
In 2009, Lebanon filed a complaint with the United Nations, presenting over 7,000 documents pertaining to Israeli violations of Lebanese territory.
