In the weeks after Israel apparently eliminated arch-terrorist Samir Kuntar, Hezbollah threatened terror attacks in retaliation.

Usually Hezbollah follows through with its threats.

But from reading Hezbollah's media, it appears that they believe that they have already avenged Kuntar's death, with this January 4 incident as recounted in Long War Journal:
At 3:15 PM on Jan. 4, Hezbollah targeted an Israeli military patrol with an IED attack across the Blue Line on the Zabadeen-Kafra road in the Shebaa Farms. Hezbollah quickly claimed responsibility, sayingits “Martyr Samir Quntar Group” carried out the attack. The group’s statement alleged that the explosive had damaged one Israeli Humvee and completely destroyed another, killing its four occupants. A “security source” told Hezbollah’s Al-Manar that the destroyed vehicle was carrying a high-ranking Israeli officer. However, Israeli sources said that the attack targeted two heavy-armored vehicles (one of which was a D-9 bulldozer), not a Humvee, and did not result in any Israeli casualties.
Hezbollah's Al Manar website was quite proud with two articles on the attack:

It looks like Hezbollah really only wanted a symbolic victory and not an escalation, despite its rhetoric.

It is true that Hezbollah is also working on creating terror cells in the West Bank but that is not in response to Kuntar's death, but rather on the command of Iran.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
