Hizbullah: Operational strength remains intact

Hizbullah deputy head Sheikh Naim Kassam said on Friday that Hizbullah's operational strength was undiminished by ongoing IDF aerial bombardment and ground operations targeting the organization's positions in south Lebanon and elsewhere. Speaking to Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, Kassam said that Hizbullah would "prove to the enemy that he can't achieve anything by military means." Kassam added that the IDF was afraid to enter Lebanese territory with ground forces in order to engage the Hizbullah from the ground.
