A high-ranking Hizbullah official has said the party would launch an offensive on Israel in the Palestinian territories occupied in 1948 in case the Jewish state wages a new war, Iranian News Agency, Fars, reported.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, made the statement in an interview with Syrian magazine "al-Hakika," the news agency said.

"We would not initiate war but in case they wage any war in the future …there will be a counter attack behind the front lines…and for the first time since 1948 in Palestine itself," the official reportedly said.

The Hizbullah Shura Council member also revealed in his remarks to the Syrian magazine that the body of slain commander Imad Mughniyeh was moved to Lebanon before Syrian secret service agents had the chance to examine it.

Mughniyeh was assassinated in a Damascus car bombing Feb. 12.

Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah ordered Mughniyeh's body to be transferred "immediately" to Lebanon minutes after the bombing, Fars news agency quoted the official as saying.

He added that Syrian President Bashar Assad asked Nasrallah to keep the identity of the assassinated official secret but the Hizbullah leader refused.

The Shiite group accused Israel of killing Mughniyeh and pledged to avenge his death.

The Iranian news agency also quoted the Hizbullah Shura Council member as saying the investigation into Mughniyeh's killing "has ended but we will announce its results in the right time."
