Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah had vowed last month to avenge the killing of Kuntar.Hezbollah had targeted an Israeli military patrol in the same area on Jan. 28, 2015 which killed two soldiers, in retaliation for an Israeli airstrike 10 days earlier that killed six party fighters in southern Syria.
