Hezbollah’s leader, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, promised that Israel faced a “big surprise” that could shake the Middle East if Israel invades Lebanon again, the Turkish Daily News reported Thursday. Nasrallah, who delivered the comments in a speech to commemorate the year’s anniversary of the cease fire between Israel and the militant group, said that his group has long range missles that can reach deep into Israel. “Oh Zionists, if you think of launching a war on Lebanon, and I don’t advise to do it,” Nasrallah told a rally of thousands Hezbollah supporters Tuesday in Beirut’s southern suburbs, “I promise you a big surprise that could change the fate of war and the fate of the region.”
