Report: Nasrallah Going After Tel Aviv in Next War

Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hizbullah, says the residents of Tel Aviv and the central region will be the terror group's target in the next war with Israel, according to a Friday report by the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar. The Shi'ite Muslim cleric was quoted as telling his followers, "if Israel decided to wage a war against Lebanon, it would wage it from Tel Aviv and not from settlements along its northern border." He reportedly added that “the war would be waged without any red lines..."

Nasrallah said that only three people - beside himself - knew, in advance, about the missile that was launched against the Israeli boat Hanit during the Second Lebanon War: senior terrorist Imad Mughniyeh (eliminated since then), a field commander and an underground commander. Four Israeli soldiers were killed in the attack. While expressing disappointment over Hizbullah members who work with Israel, he said, Nasrallah reportedly said, “The Resistance is [courageous] enough to assess itself and [uncover] all the infiltrations it discovers."
