Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah threatened Israel over the assassination of Lebanese terrorist Samir Kuntar Sunday, one week after the latter was killed in an airstrike in Syria. 

"The Israelis are hiding like rats along the border," he said. "They are worried and they should be worried along the border and inside Israel. Their threats will not benefit them."

"The response is coming no matter what... We cannot forgive the shedding of our mujahideen [martyrs - ed.] blood by the Zionists...anywhere in the world," he continued. 

Nasrallah also referenced the current terror wave in Israel, praising terrorists for their efforts to kill Israelis and Jews.

"Those who are staging stabbing operations in Palestine know that they would either be martyred or jailed," Nasrallah said.  

"As we commemorate Kuntar, we must revive the spirit of sacrifice, because this is a key condition for the rise of the people, the persistence of resistance and the creation of the future." 

Kuntar is notorious for the 1979 murder of three Israelis, including 31-year-old Danny Haran, and his four-year-old daughter.

His death was largely attributed to an Israeli Air Force (IAF) strike in Syria, although Israel has not formally taken responsibility for the hit.
