Iran-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah vowed to respond to Israeli airstrikes on open land. In comments made on Saturday, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said the group would continue to retaliate to future attacks.

This comes after Hezbollah fired rockets at Israel on Friday, claiming it was in response to airstrikes fired upon them on Thursday. “Our response yesterday is related to the direct Israeli airstrikes that targeted Lebanon for the first time since 15 years, and our response had specific execution and target,” said Nasrallah.

It is the first time that Hezbollah has directly claimed an attack on Israel since 2019, as tensions boil along the border following a week of tit-for-tat exchanges.

The group and Israeli forces exchanged rocket attacks over three days beginning on Wednesday, in which no one claimed responsibility. Nasrallah warned Hezbollah will escalate tensions should Israel continue launching airstrikes against it. He added they always used to say they weren’t looking for war, but said they are ready for one.
