Pro-Hizbullah Motorcycle Procession in Lebanon: We Are Ready to Enter Israel Underground or Above Ground

On August 16, 2019, Al-Manar TV (Lebanon) aired a report about a pro-Hizbullah motorcycle procession that rode along the Israel-Lebanon border near the village of Aitaroun. Riding past Israeli military outposts, the motorcyclists displayed Hizbullah flags, and they ran over an image of the Israeli flag. The motorcyclists told the reporter that they are steadfast on their land, that they are ready to answer any call from Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah, and that they are ready to enter northern Israel, whether underground or above ground. The motorcyclists chanted: "We respond to your call, oh Nasrallah!"


Reporter: It is very easy to hear the roar of these motorcycles in the hills along the occupied strip of the border. It can be heard in the area along Aitaroun, which is on the border. The procession passed along the border, across from the enemy's military posts, along the foothills of the occupied Galilee. The participants displayed messages that expressed their strong desire to cross [the border].

Man 1: We have come here to show the Israeli enemy that we are and will continue to be steadfast on our land.

Man 2: We are ready to respond to any order by Sayyed [Hassan Nasrallah]. We will fight any battle with motorcycles, with horses, with anything…

Man 3: We are always present, and we will cross [the border] underground or above ground, with the help of Allah.

Man 4: Like we were promised by Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, we will be above ground or underground wherever it is necessary.

Man 5: We are ready to penetrate [the border] with or without a fence.

Reporter: The men displayed the Hizbullah flag before the military outpost that sits on the Mhafer Valley in Aitaroun, and they symbolically ran over the flag of the occupying entity. This roar has a special rhythm. It precedes that will happen when victory comes, and perhaps soon it will mark the crossing to the place that they think is far, but that we think is close.

Motorcyclists: We respond to your call, oh Nasrallah! We respond to your call, oh Nasrallah!
