Nasrallah mentioned the 1997 incident in which 12 IDF naval commando soldiers were killed on a secret mission in Lebanon in his Monday evening press conference.

He said that Hizbullah knew that the IDF ships were approaching, and set up a trap for them."We assumed that Israel was going to act. Our people waiting a few weeks, and on one of the nights, the commando soldiers came...and fell into the trap that we prepared," Nasrallah said. He presented photographs taken from an unarmed IAF aircraft, which Hizbullah obtained before attacking the commando.
