Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, speaking on the one week anniversary of the assassination of Samir Kuntar, praised the terrorist who killed four Israelis in an attack on Nahariya in 1979, saying he was an icon for the school of resistance, Naharnet reported.

Israel was blamed for the airstrike that killed Kuntar although it did not claim responsibility.

Nasrallah also referenced the wave of violence in Israel in which there are stabbing attempts by Palestinian assailants on a nearly daily basis. 

"Those who are staging stabbing operations in Palestine know that they would either be martyred or jailed," Nasrallah said.  

"As we commemorate al-Kuntar, we must revive the spirit of sacrifice, because this is a key condition for the rise of the people, the persistence of resistance and the creation of the future," he added.
