Hezbollah Secretary-General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah says the resistance group fighters were behind last week’s attack against Israeli forces who violated Lebanese sovereignty.

In an interview with the Al-Mayadeen TV, Nasrallah said that the Islamic resistance was behind the operation in Labbouna area, more than a week ago, as Israeli forces violated Lebanese sovereignty, and crossed into Lebanese soil.

Nasrallah said Hezbollah members knew in advance that the Zionist regimes forces of the Golani Brigade will be passing through Labbouna, and planted explosives that were detonated as the forces passed through inflicting various injuries.

“It wasn’t just by chance, It was not a landmine that the army left in previous wars”, he said, “Our fighters planned it, and successfully carried out their mission”.

“Two groups of Israeli forces invaded Labbouna, our fighters monitored them and detonated two charges targeting the invading troops”, Nasrallah added, “Our operation was defensive, and the Israeli enemy was surprised; armed clashes also took place between the invading soldiers and our fighters”.

Hezbollah leader also noted that the Resistance group will not tolerate the Zionist regime’s violations, adding that “We will fight them whenever they violate our country.”

"The feet that will enter our land and we know about it will be cut. ... This is our right," Nasrallah said. "We will not forgive any ground violation of our land."

He added that the UNIFIL (United Nations Interim Force In Lebanon) shed a blind eye to Israel’s ongoing violations.

“The Israeli invasion to Labbouna was not the first”, Nasrallah said, “We recently witnessed various Israeli violations that target the resistance, and the people”.

Commenting on the Israeli war on Lebanon in July 2006, Nasrallah stated that his party was ready for an extended war that could have lasted for more than six months.

“Israel did not expect us to have all of these capacities and military capabilities, including our advanced wireless communication systems”, he said, “One of the reasons behind Israel’s defeat in this war is their lack of intelligence information, and obtaining wrong information”.

Nasrallah's interview was to mark the end of 33-days July 2006 war. The group is scheduled to hold a large rally in south Lebanon near the border with Israel on Friday, during which Nasrallah is scheduled to give a speech.
