GU. Brian Whitaker. We still have 20,000 rockets, says Nasrallah
In a defiant "victory" speech in a bombed-out suburb of Beirut, the Hizbullah leader, Hassan Nasrallah, said yesterday his organisation had recovered from its month-long war with Israel and now possessed more than 20,000 rockets.
Although Mr Nasrallah's latest claim is impossible to verify, he has a reputation for not bluffing. Flanked by bodyguards and with only his head visible above a protective screen labelled Victory Festival 2006, he said his guerrillas would never surrender their weapons. "No army in the world will be able to make us drop the weapons from our hands."
