"I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war." -- Thomas Jefferson

A senior official of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has warned the Israeli regime of a “decisive” response in case of expanding the scope of its war on Lebanese soil.

Sheikh Naim Qassem, deputy secretary-general of Hezbollah, issued the warning in a ceremony in the capital Beirut on Friday as fire exchanges between the Lebanese resistance movement and Israeli troops intensified over the week following the targeted killing of a senior Hezbollah commander in the country’s south.

The Israeli military said Hezbollah fired about 215 projectiles against northern Israel this morning, setting off sirens across the area and setting fires. Officials downplayed the large number, saying there were no injuries.
