Hezbollah militia leader said on Saturday (August 31) that his terrorist group doesn't have the capability to down all Israeli drones if they launched attacks.
Hasan Nasrallah claimed that he has enough precision-guided missiles in Lebanon for any confrontation with Israel, denying Israeli claims that the militia harbours facilities to build the weapons.
Nasrallah also accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of seeking a pretext to attack and to change the rules of engagement with Hezbollah.
He denied that Hezbollah had factories to produce the weapons. "We have as many precision-guided missiles in Lebanon as we need for any confrontation, small or big," he said in a televised speech.
An Israeli drone fell in the Hezbollah-dominated southern suburbs of Beirut and a second one exploded near the ground last week, a Hezbollah official told Reuters, in the first such incident in more than a decade.
