Hizbullah officers issued warnings against Israel in a February 15, 2023 report aired on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah-Lebanon) on the anniversary of the killing of 'Imad Mughniyeh on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah-Lebanon). They said that Mughniyeh's influence will be felt until the Galilee and all of Palestine will be liberated. They added that Hizbullah fighters are prepared to "liberate" the Galilee, "the next day," if Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah only says the word. They added that Hizbullah's mujaheedin can pass through the gaps in the Israeli defenses and reach the doorsteps of Israeli homes. An officer delivered a "message to the settlers," saying that Israeli forces will not be able to protect them with the protective measures at the border, and that it has become clear that they cannot even defend themselves, in light of events in the West Bank and within the 1948 borders. He said: "They should start leaving this area […] soon enough they will encounter the resistance at the doorsteps.
Hizbullah officer: "Hajj 'Imad [Mughniyeh] had and has a positive influence, and will continue to have such influence, inshallah, until the liberation of the Galilee and, indeed, all of Palestine. The liberation of the Galilee requires only one word from Sec.-Gen. [Nasrallah]. Once he declares he has made the decision, we will liberate the Galilee the next day. We are at full alert and readiness to carry out this decision.
"The resistance is at full alert and readiness. We are just waiting for the Secretary-General's decision to enter the Galilee and accomplish this goal. As part of our preparations and planning, we [detected] many gaps in the enemy's defenses, through which our mujahideen can pass, and appear at the [Israeli's] homes, at their doorsteps. The [fence] cannot stop us. We don't even take it into consideration. The men of the resistance are ready and can cross even on foot. There is no need to use cars or anything. All the measures that the enemy is taking at the border will not stop the resistance from accomplishing its goal. I would like to send a message to the settlers. They think that the enemy's [forces] can protect them with these measures at the border, but we would like to say a simple thing to them: The enemy [forces] cannot even defend themselves, especially in light of what we are seeing in the West Bank and the 1948 lands. We advise them to be ready to leave and to start leaving. They should start leaving this area, because they will be surprised how fast the resistance will enter the Galilee, and soon enough, they will encounter the resistance at their doorsteps."
