BEIRUT: The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah movement has warned Israel that it will fire rockets at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport and other strategic Israeli targets if Israel's military strikes Lebanon.
"If they destroy our buildings in the southern suburbs, we will destroy buildings in Tel Aviv," Hassan Nasrallah said on Tuesday via a video link from a secret location in Lebanon.
His speech was broadcast to a rally commemorating the 2008 assassination of Hezbollah's top military commander, Imad Mughniyeh, who was killed in a
car bomb in the Syrian capital of Damascus.
Hezbollah and Israel fought a 34-day war in 2006, and in recent months both sides have exchanged tough words of warning.
Nasrallah said the group has an arsenal of thousands of rockets and missiles, some of which he said could reach anywhere in Israel.
Nisreen el-Shamayleh, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Beirut, said Nasrallah warned that Hezbollah was not just going to blast holes in the walls of the building, but was ready to completely destroy them.
