(JNS.org) Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah took to the Lebanese terror group’s airwaves Thursday to boast about being able to target Israel’s nuclear facilities in Dimona, while chiding Israel for being afraid of Hezbollah’s “might.”

"Israel knows we can turn the reactor in Dimona from a threat to us into a threat against itself, with our missiles," Nasrallah said in remarks broadcast on Hezbollah’s Al-Manar satellite station, boasting that his terror group could turn "Israel's main weapon into a threat against Israelis themselves."

"If Hezbollah is weakened, Israel will see it as an opportunity for war. Support for Hezbollah in Lebanon protects Lebanese people from war....Israel is aware of Hezbollah's might and is afraid of us," he added.

Nasrallah said the recent meeting between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Donald Trump marked the end of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

"After what came out after the meeting between Netanyahu and Trump, I am not exaggerating if I say that yesterday there was a semi-official announcement of the death of the path of negotiations….The Israeli plot is to establish a limited government in Gaza and prevent the Palestinians from returning to the other lands stolen from them. For the Israelis, there is no such thing as a Palestinian state," he said.
