Jihad Mughniyeh

JNS.orgHezbollah vowed to avenge an Israeli airstrike in Syria that reportedly killed six of the Lebanon-based terrorist group’s members, including Jihad Mughniyeh, the son of late Hezbollah military commander Imad Mughniyeh.

“Hezbollah’s leadership cannot accept the blow it received from the Israeli strike and the killing of [Hezbollah] officials,” a Hezbollah official said, according to Israel Hayom. “Hezbollah’s leadership will choose how and when to respond to this criminal Israeli attack.”

According to reports, an Israeli Air Force helicopter strike on Sunday in the Quneitra region of Syria, near the border with Israel in the Golan Heights, killed Mughniyeh as well as members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. Some reports said that Iranian field commander Abu Ali Tabtabai was killed in the strike.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah recently said that his Shi’a Muslim terror group has more weapons that Israel can imagine.

“Hezbollah has weapons that the enemy can expect and we have ones that they aren’t expecting. Our resistance has not been damaged, and Israel is mistaken if it thinks it has,” Nasrallah told the Arabic TV station Al-Mayadeen.

After Sunday’s strike, the Hezbollah-run al-Manar news channel said that Israel “has gone crazy because of Hezbollah’s growing capabilities, and it could lead to a costly adventure [by Israel].”
