Sayyed nasrallah underlined Hezbollah possesses more than 20,000 missiles despite Israel's military offensive.
Israeli State Minister Yossi Peled on Saturday warned that both policies of Israel and Hizbullah pave the way for the eruption of a new war, accusing the international community of contributing in mounting the military capabilities of Hizbullah.
In remarks carried by military radio and the popular Ynet news website, Peled said: "We are heading toward a new confrontation in the north but I don't know when it will happen, just as we did not know when the second Lebanon war would erupt."
"Although Hizbullah is part of the Lebanese government, the latter has no influence on it," Peled said, adding the Jewish state will hold Hizbullah and its ally Syria responsible for any attack on Israel.

And Sayed Hassan Nasrallah, the chairman of the Hizbollah, has been making some even more interesting threats: that his forces will "change the face of the Middle East region" if there is another war with Israel. No-one is in much doubt about what this means. The newly resurfaced Lebanese roads near the border – courtesy of Hizbollah money – suggest that someone might want to move men at high speed towards the frontier. Perhaps even to cross the border.
That's what the Israelis suspect, too – and it makes sense of Nasrallah's warning last week. The Hizbollah claimed that the 2006 war with Israel was a "divine victory" – it didn't feel that way to us in southern Lebanon at the time – yet even Israel admits it was a near-defeat for its own ill-trained soldiers. But how would Israel react if the Hizbollah managed to enter Israel itself? Israeli army commanders are talking about this in the Israeli press. A fast, dramatic spring across the frontier to the west – in the direction of Naharia, perhaps, or a grab at the settlement of Kiryat Shmona – and Hizbollah would announce it had "liberated" part of historic "Palestine". Israel would have to bomb its own territory to get them out.

So your source is from Israel??
They kind of have a vested interest in that propaganda, don't you think?
Any proof from other sources, other than the aggressor"s .
I remember a Government ..had undeniable proof of WMD ,
we all know how that played out.
Did you check Google Earth? Do you have a denial from Hezbollah?
Do you know anything about any of this beyond the stuff that passes for information on conspiracy sites? Are yo capable of anything beyond the standard knee-jerk responses? Are you over 15?
Don't reply please.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hinted on Sunday that Iran was determined to enrich uranium to 20% if Western powers failed to accept Tehran's counter-proposal concerning a UN-brokered nuclear fuel deal.
"Therefore, during the 10 days of dawn [February 1 to 11] we will announce good news regarding the production of 20 percent enriched fuel in our country," he said, referring to the period marking the 1979 Islamic revolution.

No, you don't have any other sources other than Israel, which of course is going to make outrageous claims in order to get backing from the international community to start another "pre-emptive" war.
Do you really think Hizbollah would make a claim denying the strength of their arsenal? Do you think they would want to say.. "Stop the presses!! We only have a few hundred rockets guys!" Do you think they would want to seem weak? Of course they wont deny it, even if it's not true.
I will believe you on your claim as soon as you show an impartial claim, or maybe even a claim from Hizbollah themselves.
Hezbollah claims to have an arsenal of at least 33,000 rockets. In 2009 The Mossad confirmed that Hezbollah has 80,000 rockets and has become stronger after the 2006 War. Katyusha rockets were the main offensive weapons used by Hezbollah in the 2006 Lebanon War in which it fired some 3,970 rockets into Israel from southern Lebanon.
The main arsenal of Hezbollah's rocket force consists of 40,000 rockets, including the 122mm BM-21 rockets which have a range of 25 km. Hezbollah is also believed to have fired Shahin I missile which was described as a Ra'ad 1 missile by Hezbollah's TV station and has a range of 13 km. However, the vast majority of their rocket arsenal are made up of 122mm Katyusha rockets.
At least some of the rockets appear to have been modified to improve their effectiveness ; Human Rights Watch reported that the rocket that killed eight people at Haifa's main railway depot on July 16, 2006 had been packed with metal ball bearings which acted as lethal shrapnel. Another rocket, filled with ball bearings, killed 12 Israeli reservists on August 6.
