BEIRUT: Hezbollah’s leader said on Sunday that Israel miscalculated by killing prominent militant Samir Qantar in Syria last week, saying that retaliation for his death was inevitable whatever the consequences.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, speaking in a ceremony to mark a week since Qantar’s death, said Israelis should brace themselves for a response either inside Israel or outside.

“The response is coming no matter what… We cannot forgive the shedding of our mujahideen blood by the Zionists…anywhere in the world,” he said. Israel has welcomed Qantar’s death, but has not confirmed it carried out the air strike that killed him eight days ago.
