Nasrallah mourns his son who was killed by Israel
Lebanon, Military, 9/15/1997
After the death of six members of the Lebanese Army, and the loss of contact with four fighters of the Islamic Resistance in a fight with Israel on Saturday night, one of the lost members of the Islamic Resistance came back safe, while another who was killed turned out to be Hizbullah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah's son, Hadi Nasrallah.
Hadi, 18, was able to establish a heroic career during his short lifetime. He was a member of the special forces of the Lebanese resistance. He joined several military training courses and died in the confrontation with the Israeli occupation in al Rafi mountain area on September 13 evening.
Yesterday, Hassan Nasrallah received messages of condolence and sympathy from numerous leaders from all over the world. In a speech, Nasrallah said that the death of his son was not a victory for Israel, but a victory for Hizbullah. "He was not promenading in Harat Horek streets when he was killed by Israel, for he went by himself to the enemy, to the most dangerous area of the front line."
Nasrallah added that he wanted to let the enemy as well as the Lebanese people know that though Hadi Nasrallah was the son of Hizbullah's Secretary General, he went to the front on his own, without being the object of any pressure from his father. He also said that the case was the same for all the "pure heroes" who could be fighting at this very moment. "The only merit that we and their parents have is that we did not hinder their decision to the virtuous way they chose," Nasrallah said refereing to the killed fighters.
Concerning the exchanges of bodies, Nasrallah announced that Hadi Nasrallah's body will be considered by Hizbullah like that of any other killed fighter, and that they will not allow Israel to take advantage of the fact that Hadi Nasrallah is the son of Hizbullah's Secretary General in order to bargain in the exchanges and get more than they would if he was any other fighter.
Nasrallah mentioned terrorism, and he concluded in his speech that Israel itself is the terrorist "from its nose to its toes."
