Hezbollah No. 2 says group ready for war with Israel - Haaretz - Israel News: "Hezbollah's deputy secretary general, Sheikh Naim Qassem, said his organization is ready for any outbreak in hostilities that may erupt along the border with Israel.

Qassem, who spoke during a remembrance gathering marking three years since Israel and Hezbollah fought a month-long war, said the Shi'ite militia is not waiting for Israel to begin fighting before making the necessary preparations.

Qassem said Israel 'is an aggressive entity that can act at any moment and so the organization is always ready and it will prevent Israel from attaining its goals.'"
