Netanyahu warns Hezbollah of ‘crushing blow’ after Nasrallah touts advanced weapons

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warns Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah of a crushing blow” after head of the Lebanese terrorist group boasted of possessing highly accurate missiles in spite of Israeli efforts to thwart their weapons capabilities.

“If he confronts us, he will receive a crushing blow that he cannot imagine,” Netanyahu says at a bible study being held at the Prime Minister’s Residence.

Earlier Nasrallah told Israel that “no matter what it did to cut the [weapons transport] route, it is over. It has already been achieved,” he said, adding that Hezbollah “now possesses precision missiles and non-precision and weapons capabilities.”

Israel worries Hezbollah has been improving its capabilities and has acknowledged carrying out scores of strikes in Syria, most of them believed aimed at halting suspected arms shipments for Hezbollah.
