Nasrallah: Over 12,000 rockets can be used against Israeli targets
The head of Lebanon's Hizbullah movement said his fighters have more than 12,000 rockets they could use to attack northern Israel.
"Some people think we have 12,000 rockets, Katyushas or other ones. I tell you, we have more than 12,000," Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah told an audience of tens of thousands of supporters in Bint-Jbeil, a Shiite town near the Israeli border.
"The whole of the north of occupied Palestine as well as its settlements, airports, fields and farms are within the firing range of the fighters of the Islamic resistance," he said, according to AFP.
Nasrallah's speech was to mark the fifth anniversary of the withdrawal of Israeli troops from southern Lebanon after more than 20 years of occupation.
