Hizbollah threatens Tel Aviv

Text size Aa Aa

In a taped televised message, the leader of Hizbollah, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, has said his group would fire rockets at Tel Aviv if Israel attacks central Beirut. It was Hizbollah’s first direct claim that it has longer-range missiles capable of hitting the Israeli city, some 130 kilometres south of the border. In reaction, a senior Israeli military source said Israel would destroy Lebanese infrastructure if Tel Aviv is attacked. Nasrallah also offered to stop the rocket barrage altogether, in return for a halt to Israeli air strikes on what he called civilian areas in Lebanon.
