Hezbollah is capable of inflicting a major blow to Israel in a possible conflict, says a political analyst, commenting on the Saturday night speech by the head of the Lebanese resistance movement.

Speaking to al-Mayadin television, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah said Israel was deeply wrong to think that its discovery of four tunnels would save it from future attacks by Hezbollah. 

Nasrallah “emphasized that Hezbollah has the capabilities to inflict major damage on Israel,” Paul Larudee of the Free Palestine Movement told Press TV on Sunday.

“The Israelis learned the hard way in 2006 that Hezbollah can deliver a very strong blow, a devastating blow, to Israel and that Israel will be unable to hold on to any Lebanese land,” Larudee said.

“Basically, what he (Nasrallah) is saying and it seems absolutely true is that Israel really can’t afford to start this war,” he added, referring to recent Israeli threats to attack Lebanon over Hezbollah's precision missiles.
