Hezbollah vows to destroy Israel`s Navy in event of conflict

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has said that his militants are capable of wiping out Israel`s Navy and any other ships heading to Israel in the event of a new war with the Jewish state.



Beirut: Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has said that his militants are capable of wiping out Israel`s Navy and any other ships heading to Israel in the event of a new war with the Jewish state.

"If you launch a new war on Lebanon, if you blockade our coastline, all military, civilian or commercial ships heading through the Mediterranean to occupied Palestine will be
targetted by the Islamic resistance," said Nasrallah in a speech transmitted via video link to thousands of supporters massed in Hezbollah`s stronghold in Beirut`s southern suburbs.

"Whether along the northern or southern Israeli shore, we can target ships, bomb them and hit them God willing," he added, speaking on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the withdrawal of Israeli troops from southern Lebanon after a 22-year occupation.
"When the world sees how these ships are destroyed, no one will dare go there (Israel)," he added. "And I am only speaking about the Mediterranean, I haven`t reached the Red
Sea yet."
His speech came against a backdrop of tension in the region following allegations that the Shiite party, which fought a devastating war with Israel in 2006, was stockpiling
sophisticated new weapons in anticipation of a new conflict.
