Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Wednesday that he was "proud" that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama had discussed the Lebanese Shi'ite terror organization in their recent meeting in Washington earlier this week.

Nasrallah's comments, made at a televised speech to mark Hezbollah's Martyr's Day, apparently referred to the two leaders discussion of the war in Syria and the threats it poses to Israel.

"We are enjoying security in the South due to the equation of deterrence in the face of the Israelis and the achievements that have been made against the takfiris (Sunni terrorists), and this has been reached through the blood of the martyrs," Lebanese news portal Naharnet quoted Nasrallah as saying.

"We rule out any imminent Israeli attack on Lebanon because Israel knows its high cost," Nasrallah said.

Nasrallah said the fact that Obama and Netanyahu discussed Hezbollah "means that we are in the correct place in the region's equation."
