Hezbollah Can Strike Targets in Tel Aviv, Warns Nasrallah
Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said May 11 that his Lebanon-based terrorist group was capable of striking any target in Israel, declaring that “the days when we fled and they did not are over.”
“Today we are not just able to target Tel Aviv as a city but also with God’s will and strength we are able to strike very specific targets in Tel Aviv and in any place in occupied Palestine,” Nasrallah said in a televised address, essentially admitting that his militia was arming itself with advanced long-range missiles in violation of U.N. Resolution 1701.
Hezbollah is based in southern Lebanon, which borders Israel. According to the U.N. resolution that ended the 2006 Second Lebanon War between Israel and Hezbollah, only U.N. forces can carry arms south of the Litani River.
“For every building that is destroyed in the suburbs, there will be buildings destroyed in Tel Aviv,” he said, referring to Hezbollah’s stronghold in a suburb of southern Beirut.
