If Hezbollah Gets The Bomb From Iran…

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) – Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said Monday his group possesses an arsenal of rockets that can reach all of Israel, including Tel Aviv.

“We could absolutely reach any corner and any point in occupied Palestine,” Nasrallah said in an interview aired by Arab broadcaster Al-Jazeera and Hezbollah’s Al-Manar television.

Celebratory gunshots and fireworks erupted in Beirut’s southern suburbs for several minutes as the interview began and after it ended.

Nasrallah said last year’s war between Israel and Hezbollah did not succeed in diminishing his group’s military capabilities. Repeating earlier claims, the Hezbollah leader said his group could already have fired at Tel Aviv last summer during the conflict, but had avoided doing so.

“In July and August 2006, there wasn’t a place in occupied Palestine that the rockets of the resistance could not reach, be it Tel Aviv or other cities,” he said, describing Israel and the Hezbollah guerrillas in terms usually used by the group.

“We could absolutely do that now,” he added.

In Jerusalem, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev said Hezbollah’s rearmament “is a direct and grave violation of U.N. Security Council resolution 1701,” which ended last year’s war.

“The international community must hold accountable those governments, namely Syria and Iran, who by supplying weapons to Hezbollah are deliberately trying to undermine the United Nations, the Lebanese government and peace and stability in the region,” he said.

At least the pictures look real
