Iraq’s al-Noujaba: ‘Israel’ to pay for killing Hezbollah commander

Secretary general of the al-Nujaba Movement in Iraq has warned 'Israel' that it will pay a heavy price for its crimes, particularly its latest attack that resulted in the killing of a Hezbollah leader.

An Iraqi Resistance group warned Israel of a “heavy price” after the occupation killed a senior commander of the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon in a strike on Lebanon.

Secretary General of the al-Nujaba Movement Akram al-Kaabi made his remarks on Thursday following the Israeli strikes two days earlier that killed Taleb Sami Abdallah (Abu Taleb) and three others in a residential building in southern Lebanon.

Kaabi extended his condolences to Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Lebanese Resistance fighters, and Abu Talib’s family over his martyrdom, emphasizing that the commander was dedicated to upholding pure Islamic values.

“Real men have promised to make the enemy pay a heavy price very soon for shedding pure blood,” he added.

“The enemies should know that the Resistance of Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, and Iran will not stop until the liberation of al-Quds from the occupiers,” the statement read. 

In response to the Israeli crime, Hezbollah launched approximately 215 rockets, along with several missiles and drones, targeting the northern part of the occupied territories on Wednesday.

During the funeral procession in Beirut, the Executive Council chief of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hashem Safieddine, emphasized that the occupation entity has not learned from past experiences of the battle against Hezbollah

Israeli media reported that the barrages represented the largest attack by Hezbollah during the ongoing exchange of fire on the border with the occupied lands.

“Israel persists in its folly … believing that assassinating [Resistance] leaders would weaken [it],” he declared, pointing out that experience has shown that the Resistance only grows stronger and becomes more steadfast following the martyrdom of its leaders.

Sayyed Safieddine stressed that “Israel must understand” that Hezbollah’s inevitable response will be to increase operations in support of Gaza, “both in type and quantity.”

Hezbollah and “Israel” have been engaging in confrontations since early October. The Resistance group has pledged to continue its retaliatory strikes as long as the occupation persists with its aggression on Gaza, resulting in the deaths of at least 37,232 Palestinians, predominantly women and children, and injuries to 85,037 others.
