Nasrallah’s statement came in the wake of Iranian-developed Fajr-5 rockets, with their range of 75 kilometers (45 miles), falling near Tel Aviv and Jerusalem during the latest conflict with Gaza.

“Israel, which was shaken by a handful of Fajr-5 rockets during eight days—how would it cope with thousands of rockets which would fall on Tel Aviv and other (cities) ... if it attacked Lebanon?” Nasrallah said.

“If the confrontation with the Gaza Strip... had a range of 40 to 70 kilometers, the battle with us will range over the whole of occupied Palestine—from the Lebanese border to the Jordanian border, to the Red Sea,” he said.
