Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah praises Samir Kuntar, who was killed one week ago in an alleged Israeli airstrike, during a speech to mark the occasion.
“As we commemorate Kuntar, we must revive the spirit of sacrifice, because this is a key condition for lifting up the people, the persistence of resistance and the creation of the future,” Nasrallah says in a televised address.
“After he was freed from prison, Samir could have lived a normal life among his family and friends. He could have stayed in the ‘axis of resistance’ without getting involved militarily, but he refused to do so,” Nasrallah says during his speech, according to the Lebanese Naharnet new site.
The Hezbollah leader calls for increased action against Israel, which he says, “has been seeking to influence our minds, will and resolve through a psychological war.”
