Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah tells his followers that his group is producing drones and can turn its thousands of rockets into precision-guided missiles.

“I tell the Israelis that their ‘battle between wars’ has turned the threat into an opportunity for the resistance,” Nasrallah says in comments carried by the Lebanese news site Naharnet. “We now possess the ability to transform our thousands of missiles into precision-guided missiles.”

Nasrallah warns Israel that Hezbollah, backed by Iran, has “started manufacturing drones.”

“We encourage the Israelis to leave Palestine and we’re ready to pay for their travel tickets,” Nasrallah is quoted as saying. “There is a decline in the Israelis’ will to fight and in their confidence in their army amid an increase in their desire to emigrate.”

“I’m not underestimating Israel, seeing as it still possesses a lot of strength elements, but it is in decline,” he adds. “The Israelis know that going to war would be difficult and costly.”
