Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah threatened Israel again on Saturday, claiming his group has rockets that could hit all of Israel.

“The forces of the resistance today have the ability, the power and the missiles to hit any target in Israel,” said Nasrallah.

Nasrallah’s deputy, Naim Qassem, warned several days ago that Iran would respond to an air strike on a military base in Syria which was attributed to Israel and in which seven Iranian personnel were killed.

"The elimination of the Iranians by Israel at the airbase will be met with a response,” Qassem told Al-Mayadeen TV.

"By bombing the T-4 airport, Israel wanted to create an equation that shows that it controls the rules of the conflict, but we do not accept this. We expect an Iranian response against Israel, but we do not know its nature or details,” he claimed.

Prior to that, Nasrallah warned Israel that its air strike in Syria has put it in direct confrontation with Iran.

"The Israelis committed a historic mistake...and put themselves in direct combat with Iran," Nasrallah said.

Hezbollah is one of Iran’s regional proxies.

On Friday, the deputy head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Brigadier General Hossein Salami, also threatened Israel, warning the Jewish state that its military bases were within reach.

“Don't trust in your airbases; they're within reach. Don't have hope in the U.S. and the UK,” he said.

“Wherever you are in the occupied land, you’ll be under fire from us, from east and west. You became arrogant. If there’s a war, the result will be your complete elimination. Your soldiers and civilians will flee, and you won’t survive. And you’ll have nowhere to run, except to fall into the sea,” added Salami.
