Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah claimed responsibility on Monday for an attack that took place on the Lebanese-Israeli border in March. A roadside bomb was hidden on the Israeli side of the border and was detonated when an IDF jeep passed by. Four soldiers were seriously injured in the attack.

Nasrallah claimed that the terrorist attack against Israel was in revenge for an airstrike in February that was reportedly conducted by the IAF. The airstrike took place a week before Hezbollah’s attack and targeted advanced weaponry that was in transit to the terror group.

Israel has yet to confirm or deny its involvement in the airstrike, which killed four Hezbollah operatives and obliterated trucks transporting sophisticated missiles and missile launchers to Hezbollah warehouses from Syria.

“The Israelis understood the message very well. The story here is not about the rules of the game, but rather about deterrence,” Nasrallah stated to the As Safir newspaper.

“This was not the reply, but this was part of the reply,” Nasrallah said. He further added that the revenge attack was only paying back what Israel did to the “resistance.”

“You hit a military target and the resistance responded by hitting a military target,” Nasrallah explained.

Several days after the terrorist attack took place, an anonymous Hezbollah official told Lebanese television that the attack was a failed attempt at kidnapping IDF soldiers. The official said that while the attempt had failed, “this time, we are sure we will succeed in the near future.”

In related news, on Sunday, Nasrallah announced that the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad is safe and is no longer in danger of failing. In an interview with As Safir, Nasrallah stated, “The danger of the Syrian regime’s fall has ended.”
