The leader of Hezbollah, the Iranian regime’s terrorist proxy in Yemen, said on Thursday that his group had obtained precision rockets despite Israeli strikes in recent years aimed at cutting the weapons supply route through war-torn Syria.

“No matter what you do to cut the route, the matter is over and the resistance possesses precision and non-precision rockets and weapons capabilities,” Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said, addressing Israel in a broadcast speech.

“If Israel imposes a war on Lebanon, Israel will face a fate and a reality it has never expected on any day,” he added.

Hezbollah, backed by Iran, has played a critical role in supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during Syria’s seven-year-long civil war.
