Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday threatened to hit Hezbollah with a “crushing blow” if the Lebanese terror group “dares to do some nonsense” and launches an attack on Israel.

Netanyahu made his comments at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting in response to Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah’s speech over the weekend, commemorating the Lebanese terror group’s “victory” in the 2006 Second Lebanon War, where he said the organization has the ability to hit “sensitive targets” in the southern and northern Israel.

“Over the weekend we heard Nasrallah’s remarks on his attack plans,” said the prime minister. “It should be clear that if Hezbollah dares to do some nonsense and attacks Israel, we will hit him and Lebanon with a crushing military blow.

“In contrast to Nasrallah, I do not intend to detail our plans. It is enough to recall that Nasrallah had – for years – dug terror tunnels, which we destroyed within days,” Netanyahu added.

In an interview with a Lebanese satellite television station Al-Manar, Nasrallah said he doesn’t foresee a war between the two sides soon because Israel is “deterred” by the terror group.

“In a next war with us, Israel will be fighting for its existence … and I will be praying in Jerusalem,” Nasrallah said.
