Hizbollah leader vows to continue rocket attacks

Hizbollah leader vows to continue rocket attacks
Text size Aa Aa

Since Hizbollah seized two Israeli soldiers earlier this month, the guerrilla group has fired more than 1,500 rockets into northern Israel. Despite Israel’s constant attacks, Hizbollah continues to pose a significant threat. Around 40 rockets landed across the region today, slightly injuring around five people.

Israeli military authorities say the rockets fired were old Syrian-made models – a sign, they say, that Hizbollah is growing weak and running out of weapons. But the group’s leader dismissed such claims.

In a televised address, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah pledged more attacks on central Israeli cities if Israel’s offensive persists.
