In a televised speech on Tuesday night, Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah described the Lebanese army as 'heroic' following an exchange of fire that left one Israeli soldier and four Lebanese dead.
According to DPA, Nasrallah warned that Hizbullah is standing by to help the Lebanese army.
"This time we stood and watched ... but next we will not," he warned.
"Israel's aggression on Lebanon has never stopped. We will not stand idle ... we will cut any hand that attack our army."
