Hizballah’s Nasrallah declares in a war speech from Tehran he has missiles which can reach all parts of Israel including Tel Aviv
July 23, 2007
As DEBKAfile reported exclusively, Hassan Nasrallah recorded his speech Saturday, July 21, in Tehran for broadcast Monday, July 23 by al Jazeera TV. The station began running a promo Sunday night in which the Hizballah leader also said he had refrained from blasting Tel Aviv in the 2006 war from choice.
Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is holding a two-day council of war with leaders of Hizballah, Hamas and other Palestinian radical groups, as the second round of the talks he and Iranian military chiefs held in Damascus Friday with Syrian president Bashar Assad and heads of his armed forces.
We have also learned that Al Jazeera paid a high fee for exclusive use of the Nasrallah tape, keen to preserve its lead as the preferred platform for top-line radical Muslims, such as al Qaeda big shots.
