Nasrallah's televised warning comes just days after a tenuous cease-fire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza and the end of Ashura, a religious holiday for Shia Muslims.
“If the confrontation in the Gaza Strip given its blockade included missiles reaching 40 to 70 kilometers [into Israel], then the radius of a battle with us will reach occupied Palestine [Israel] from the Lebanese border to the Jordanian border and the Red Sea,” Nasrallah said, according to the Daily Star.
“From Kiryat Shmona to Eilat,” he continued, in reference to Israel's most northern and southern cities.
Nasrallah has previously warned that it now has an arsenal of weapons that could reach Israel's largest city Tel Aviv." Global Post
Israel and the "Israel Friendly Community" should take this warning seriously."As of 2010[update], the Israeli government believed Hezbollah had an arsenal of more than 15,000 long-range rockets stationed on its border with Lebanon. Some of these missiles were said to be capable of penetrating cities as far away as Eilat." Wiki on Hizbullah
Israel's nightmare ought to be a situation in which war with both HAMAS and Hizbullah ocurs and 20,000 odd artillery rockets and short range ballistic missiles are fired at their population centers, Iron Dome worked reasonably well against HAMAS artillery rockets, but even at the end of hostilities after a week of bombardment by Israel, HAMAS was still firing salvos of rockets at Israeli targets. HAMAS has buried pre-aimed rockets that are very difficult for the Israelis to locate before they are fired.
A war in which both Islamist groups "unloads" the whole inventory at Israel would produce high casualties and much damage in Israel.
Would there be a lot of damage in Lebanon? Yes. Would that deter Hizbullah? No. pl
