On Sunday, supporters of Hezbollah gathered near the Lebanese border to profess their support for the terror group and declare their willingness to assist in attacking the Jewish state via a group motorcycle ride visible from Israel.

Lebanon’s Daily Star reported on the event, during which Hezbollah supporters rode motocross bikes. The Daily Star claimed Hezbollah has used this type of off-road motorcycle in “resistance operations.” Within the world of Islamic terror groups such as Hezbollah and Hamas, the term “resistance” frequently refers to attacks on innocent civilians.

“We’re ready if you ask,” a rider from Sunday’s rally told the Daily Star, according to the Jerusalem Post. “If you want us on [motocross] bikes, we’re at your service.”

The biker explained that ride, organized under the motto “to Jerusalem on millions of motocross bikes,” was designed to demonstrate support for Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.

Hezbollah’s activities along Lebanon’s border have broken international law and include constructing cross-border terror tunnels that the group intended to use in attacks on Israeli civilians. Israel discovered and destroyed the tunnels as part of Operation Northern Shield at the beginning of the year.

The terror group is bankrolled by millions of dollars in aid from Iran, in addition to the vast international narcotics trafficking operation it oversees.

Hezbollah is committed to Israel’s destruction and has amassed an arsenal of around 150,000 missiles in the last decade, in violation of the terms that brought the Second Lebanon War to a close in 2006.
