Hizbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah remarked that “Hizbollah’s silence [regarding the 13 March explosion at the Megiddo Junction in Israel] is part of the battle with the enemy… I will respond to the enemy’s threats that if Hizbollah was proven to be responsible for the Megiddo operation they will do such and such, by telling tell them: Buzz off”. He further warned Israel that “an attack on Lebanon could trigger a war in the region… The resistance in Lebanon adheres to its commitment and its decision that any attack against any person present on Lebanese territory, whether he is Lebanese, Palestinian or of another nationality, or an attack on a Lebanese region, will not get unanswered”.
