Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah on Monday described the wave of violence in the Gaza Strip as a test for the "Arab Spring nations."

Nasrallah was quoted by Lebanese news site Naharnet as saying Egypt, Libya and Tunisia would have to choose how they respond to fighting between the IDF and the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

Nasrallah also described Hezbollah's unmanned aerial vehicle, shot down by Israel last month, as part of the group's deterrence strategy. "We have reached a point where we forced the enemy (Israel) to acknowledge the deterrence force created by the Resistance (Hezbollah) in Lebanon," according to the report.

That Israel did nothing after Hezbollah claimed responsibility for sending the drone deep into Israeli territory was proof of that deterrence, Nasrallah asserted.
