Hezbollah’s leader voiced surprise at the intensity of Israel’s Lebanon offensive. In a Lebanese television interview broadcast Sunday, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said it might have been a mistake for Hezbollah to kill eight Israeli soldiers and abduct two in a July 12 raid that triggered a 34-day war. “If I had known that the operation to capture the soldiers would lead to this result, we would not have carried it out,” he said.
