Hezbollah vows revenge, says attack on Israel 'is inevitable'

January 19, 2015 08:04

Hezbollah officials vowed on Monday to avenge the latest Israeli attack on its high-level officials, sources close to the Lebanese Shi’ite organization are quoted as saying in various Arab-language media outlets north of the border.

One pro-Hezbollah source told the Lebanese daily A-Safir that the group “will not rush to decide what steps should be taken” in retaliation to the assassination of Jihad Mughniyeh, the son of slain arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh.

Hezbollah officials told the newspaper that a retaliation against Israel “is inevitable,” though they added that “we will not act out of emotion.”
