Hezbollah, the Shiite terror group, says it’s seeking revenge for the killing of a member in Damascus.

Israel’s alert levels on its northern border with Lebanon have reportedly been raised following the killing of a Hezbollah member in Damascus on Monday night, with the group threatening to respond.

In a new video spread by the terrorist group, a squadron is seen preparing to launch anti-tank missiles, Hebrew-language outlet N12 reported Wednesday.

Moreover, Hezbollah has raised its alert threshold as well, Lebanese daily Al Akhbar reported.

The video follows threats sounded by Secretary-General of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah toward Israel.

The last time there was a flare-up on the Israel-Lebanon border, the Iran-backed Shiite organization launched anti-tank missiles at an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) post and at military vehicles near the town of Avivim in the north, on September 1, 2019. The incident ended with no casualties to Israel.

On Monday, according to multiple reports, Israel attacked sites belonging to Hezbollah and several other organizations backed by Iran south of Damascus.

In a mourning statement, Hezbollah confirmed that member Ali Kamel Mohsen was killed by the “Zionist aggression” on the outskirts of Damascus.
