Ynetnews reports: Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah boasted in a speech Monday that his organization shipped anti-tank missiles to the Gaza Strip. “I’m proud and honored to say we sent Kornet missiles to the Gaza Strip. We’re using our own weapons in Syria as well,” he said.

The Hezbollah chief was nevertheless dismissive towards allegations his organization was responsible for the ballistic missile recently launched from Yemen at Saudi Arabia by Iran-affiliated Houthi rebels. Nasrallah also complained that while no Israeli attack has thus far caused the Arab League’s foreign ministers to convene, a single missile launched at Riyadh led to a special session of Arab countries’ organization.

Touching on Lebanon’s political turmoil following the surprise resignation of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, Nasrallah remarked, “I wish to remind (the Arab League ministers) and public opinion that the single greatest threat to Lebanese security and stability is the Israeli occupation. Likewise, the most important factor contributing to Lebanon’s liberation is resistance, and the backbone of that resistance is Hezbollah.”
