Hizbollah threatens Tel Aviv if central Beirut hit

(Reuters) - Hizbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Thursday his guerrillas would fire rockets at Tel Aviv if Israel attacked central Beirut.

"If you strike Beirut, the Islamic Resistance will strike Tel Aviv and it is able to do so," Nasrallah said in a taped televised message. He said Hizbollah would end its rocket attacks on northern

Israel if the Jewish state stopped attacking civilian areas in Lebanon.

"(If) at any time you decide to stop your campaigns on our cities, suburbs, civilians and infrastructure, we won't strike with rockets any settlement or Israeli city ..." he said.
