The leader of Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah said that while his group had chosen to respond to Israeli airstrikes on open land, it could escalate with a different strategy in the future.
Hezbollah fired rockets towards Israeli forces on Friday, drawing retaliatory fire from Israel into south Lebanon in the third day of cross-border back and forth amid wider tensions with Iran.
Hezbollah wanted to show that Israeli airstrikes would be responded to and in an appropriate manner, Nasrallah said, adding that the response could be in any open land in "Northern occupied Palestine," Galilee, or the Golan Heights.
