Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah boasted Tuesday that his party had the upper hand against Islamists in Syria, while warning Israel that the resistance was ready for any conflict on Lebanon's southern border.Hezbollah's intervention in the Syrian war, which started as peaceful protests in March 2011 but has turned into an armed rebellion that has killed nearly 200,000 people after a brutal crackdown by the regime, has sparked criticism from many Lebanese, who accuse Nasrallah of dragging Lebanon into the war."You should close all of your airports and your ports because there is no place extending on the land of occupied Palestine that the resistance's rockets cannot reach".He said Israel knew very well that Hezbollah was never distracted from watching Lebanon's southern border contrary to what he said were Lebanese and Arab media reports that the Syrian conflict had exhausted the party's capabilities.
