Hezbollah says able to strike anywhere in Israel

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah said his powerful militant group was capable of striking any target in neighboring Israel, saying "the days when we fled and they didn't are over".

"Today we are not only able to hit Tel Aviv as a city but, God willing, we are able to hit specific targets in Tel Aviv and anywhere in occupied Palestine," Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said, referring to the Israeli state.

Hezbollah, a Shi'ite party and guerrilla group, fought a war with its southern neighbor Israel in 2006, which the group claimed as a victory even though Lebanon suffered high casualties and many areas were heavily bombed.
