adinejad said confronting Israel is an effort to “protect the dignity of all human beings.”Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Lebanon-based Hezbollah group, and Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, the Iranian president, have issued stern warnings to Israel, saying that any aggression on that country’s part would be met with a swift armed response.Nasrallah, speaking during a televised address from Beirut on Friday, said that his fighters will make the lives of Israelis “a living hell” if it is attacked.”There are targets in occupied Palestine [Israel] which could be targeted by a small number of missiles,” Nasrallah said.”If we are forced to use them to protect our people and our country, we will not hesitate to do so… and that will turn the lives of hundreds of thousands of Zionists into a living hell,” he said in a speech marking al-Quds [Jerusalem] Day.Nasrallah warned that any conflict would involve “tens of thousands of deaths”. Last month, an Israeli general warned that the Israeli military would respond “decisively” to any rocket attacks aimed at Tel Aviv.
