Speaking during a memorial ceremony for a Hezbollah commander killed last week by an Israeli strike, Nasrallah said his group has prepared itself "for the most difficult ways," warning that attacking the Israeli part of Galilee is "a choice that remains on the table if confrontation and tension increase."

Israel has threatened over the past days to expand its war against the Shiite militant group. On Tuesday, the Israeli military announced that it has approved "operational plans" for an offensive against Hezbollah.

In response, the Hezbollah leader said they are "not afraid of these threats," claiming that Hezbollah's missiles and rockets can cause significant damage to the Israeli side.

Tensions along the Lebanon-Israel border escalated on Oct. 8, 2023, following a barrage of rockets launched by the Lebanese armed group Hezbollah toward Israel in solidarity with Hamas' attack on Israel the day before. Israel then retaliated by firing heavy artillery toward southeastern Lebanon.
