Top officials in Hezbollah, a Lebanese-based and Iranian-backed terrorist group, have said in the days following the unprecedented terrorist attacks in Israel over the weekend that similar attacks on a much larger scale will be launched against Israel from Lebanon.
Hashem Safieddine, the head of Hezbollah's Executive Council, said in a televised speech on Sunday, "The images of [Hamas'] invasion of the protected and fortified settlements, and the killing and capturing of large numbers [of people] was humiliating enough [for Israel] to serve as an indication of the capabilities of the heroic Palestinian resistance fighters."
"Just imagine when these images repeat themselves one day but on a scale dozens of times larger - from Lebanon and from all the areas bordering with occupied Palestine,"
he said, according to a translation of his remarks provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
"What will become of that cancerous growth, Israel, then? When we were talking about the destruction of Israel, some people were saying that we were delusional,"
he continued. "Today has proven true the words of the esteemed leader, [Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali] Khamenei, who said that one of these days we would put an end to this plundering entity. It seems, however, that the Israelis are expediting this, as we are seeing today."
"Oh, Americans and Israelis, your continuous stupidity, your disregard for [our] holy places, and your crossing of all the [red] lines, have brought about the Al-Aqsa Deluge,"
he added. "If you continue with this stupidity, and construct your positions and actions on miscalculations, you will bring about, this time, the deluge of the entire nation, and not just the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
MEMRI also highlighted remarks from Hezbollah official Hashem Salhab, who said on Sunday that the terrorist attack was "a live-fire maneuver of a larger operation that is expected to eliminate the existence of the Israeli enemy in reality [i.e. comprehensively], not only in Palestine."
"The Zionist soldier and the Zionist settler must begin the countdown of the remaining days of their existence,"
he continued. "We are talking about the blessed Palestinian flood of resistance, a flood of Palestinian resistance that is part of the resistance axis. If the flood of the resistance axis reaches you, what will you do, you Zionists? The U.S. will not help you with a thing... It did not manage to predict this, and will not manage to stop the Al-Aqsa flood."
"You have seen today only part of the war and much more awaits you,"
he later added.
