Israel will face thousands of rockets: Hezbollah
Beirut: The leader of Lebanon`s Hezbollah says the militant group would fire thousands of rockets into Israel and hit cities in the country`s heartland in any future war.
Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah`s comments came days after an eight-day Israeli offensive against Gaza ended with a truce.
Israeli aircraft launched some 1,500 strikes on targets linked to the Palestinian territory`s Hamas rulers and other groups, while Gaza militants fired roughly the same number of rockets into Israel.
Some Iranian-made Fajr-5 rockets targeted the cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for the first time.
Nasrallah said in a speech in Beirut today that Israel will face "thousands of rockets that will fall on Tel Aviv and other areas if it launches an aggression against Lebanon”.
Israel and Hezbollah fought a 34-day war in 2006.
