Hizbullah says a large-scale drill to be held in about two weeks constitutes preparation for the implications that would stem from the assassination of group head Hassan Nasrallah, al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper reported on Friday.
If such assassination would materialize it would "cause an all-out explosion," Senior Hizbullah member Nawaf al-Musawi told to the newspaper.
The exercise, code-named "Turning Point 3," will be held on the morning of June 2nd. The drill will include an air-raid siren that will be activated across the country.
"The resistance is addressing this military maneuver responsibly and seriously," the Hizbullah man said, adding that the group is on high alert "because a decision was taken in Israel to assassinate Nasrallah, and many states have conspired with Israel on this front."
Earlier this week, Nasrallah himself said Hizbullah will go on high alert ahead of the drill planned by the "Zionist enemy."
Meanwhile, Lebanese newspaper al-Akhbar reported that Hizbullah has been adopting unusual preventative steps at its stronghold south of Beirut, the Dahiya. Hizbullah members are searching for cameras allegedly planted by Israeli agents at the entrances to buildings and shops in the area, the paper said.
Hizbullah is concerned that the cameras were providing Israel with footage of vehicles belonging to senior group members.
