Hezbollah ready for open war with Israel
Beirut, February 14, 2008
Hezbollah's chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Thursday the group was ready for 'open war' with Israel if the Jewish state wanted it after a top commander in Syria was killed.
'Zionists, if you want this type of open war then let the whole world hear: let it be an open war,' Nasrallah told mourners at the funeral of Imad Moughniyah, killed by a bomb in Damascus on Tuesday.
