Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah warned Friday that his group would respond to any Israeli attack at any time and in any place.The resistance party chief said that the Israeli airstrike that killed six Hezbollah fighters and a top Iranian general in Syria's Golan Heights this month has shattered the rules of engagement with the Jewish state. In a defiant speech, two days after Hezbollah fighters ambushed an Israeli military convoy in the occupied Shebaa Farms, killing two soldiers in retaliation for the Israeli raid in the Syrian town of Qunaitra, Nasrallah said the Lebanese and Iranian martyrs who died in Syria reflected the unity of the battle among the three countries against Israel. "If the Israeli enemy thinks that the resistance fears war, I tell them today in the commemoration of the Qunaitra martyrs and after the Shebaa qualitative operation that we don't fear war and we are not reluctant to face it, and we will face it if it is imposed on us, and we will win it, God willing," Nasrallah said.He added that the Qunaitra attack has destroyed the rules of engagement that had governed the military confrontation between Hezbollah and Israel in south Lebanon in the past. It was not the first time that Israel violated the rules of engagement," Berri was quoted as saying.He said the Hezbollah attack in the Shebaa Farms did not violate Resolution1701 that ended the Israel-Hezbollah war in 2006 .
