Nasrallah says Hizbullah's arsenal of rockets can hit 'any corner' in Israel

Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said Monday the summer 2006 war with Israel did not succeed in diminishing Hizbullah's military potential, adding that his group possesses an arsenal of rockets that can reach "any corner" of Israel, including Tel Aviv.

"Every corner and any point in occupied Palestine are within our reach," Nasrallah said during the first part of an interview with the Qatar-based al-Jazeera satellite TV station. "Tel Aviv and other than cities were certainly within the reach of Hizbullah rockets during last summer's war with Israel," he added.

Hizbullah fired around 4,000 rockets into the Jewish state during the war with Israel last summer. Hizbullah's missiles reached Israel's third-largest city of Haifa.
