Report: Nasrallah to address Iran conference

Hezbollah leader to take part in International Conference on Islamic Resistance in Isfahan, reports say

Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah will discuss "the process of Israel's destruction after the collapse of Egypt and Tunisia's dictatorships" in a speech before Iranians, media in Lebanon and Iran are reporting.


Nasrallah, who has been holed up in a Lebanon bunker since the Second Lebanon War, was said to "take part" in the third International Conference on Islamic Resistance which will be held in Isfahan later this week.

Joining him will be representatives from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, the Palestinian Authority, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Bahrain and Libya. The conference will discuss the Arab Spring, Palestinian unity and right of return as well as revolutions throughout the Islamic world.


On Monday, Nasrallah said Hezbollah has no chemical weapons but can still cause great damage to Israel if there is a war, linking his remarks to tension over Iran's nuclear program.


In a rare live interview with Al-Mayadeen TV, he said Al-Mayadeen that Iranian officials told him they will strike at Israel and US military bases in the region if Israel attacks Iran's nuclear facilities.


"What I heard from Iranian officials ... is that the retaliation will be huge, and Iran will not forgive a strike against its nuclear facilities," Nasrallah said. "The Zionist entity (Israel) will not be the only target. American bases in the region will be targets, too."
