Hizbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah warned that “Hizbollah is engaging in tuned battle with the Israeli enemy, but limits will disappear if Israel wages an all-out war on Lebanon… War with Hizbollah will be very costly.

He further attributed the 2 January killing of a senior Hamas leader near Beirut to Israel and pledged: “This crime will not go unanswered”.
