Hezbollah chief says group has no chemical weapons
Beirut: The leader of Lebanon`s militant Hezbollah says it has no chemical weapons but can still cause great damage to Israel if there is a war.
Sheik Hassan Nasrallah warns that in a war with the Jewish state, his group has missiles that can hit targets throughout the country.
He says Hezbollah does not need chemical or nuclear weapons, "but there are targets in Israel that (if hit) can achieve the same results," an apparent reference to Israel`s nuclear reactors.
Nasrallah spoke in a rare live interview Monday on Lebanon`s al-Mayadeen TV.
Israel and Hezbollah fought an inconclusive monthlong war in 2006 that left 1,200 Lebanese and 160 Israelis dead.
Hezbollah fired nearly 4,000 rockets at Israel during the war and is believed to have upgraded its arsenal since then.
