Top shot of supporters STORYLINE: The leader of Lebanon's Islamic militant group Hezbollah on Friday warned Israel that his fighters would hit Tel Aviv with rockets if Israeli forces attacked Beirut or the guerrillas' stronghold in its southern suburbs. Speaking on the anniversary of the end of the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah conflict, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said the Shiite militants were now capable of striking any Israeli city. The 2006 month long war began when Hezbollah launched a cross-border attack that killed three Israeli soldiers. During the conflict, the Iranian-backed militants rocketed the Israeli port of Haifa and other parts of Israel's north but spared Tel Aviv to the south. In retaliation, Israeli warplanes destroyed entire blocks in Beirut's southern suburbs, including Nasrallah's office and Hezbollah's headquarters. Hezbollah calls the outcome of the war "a divine victory" because Israel failed to crush the militants, who withstood massive Israeli airstrikes and artillery bombardment. The war killed about 1,200 people in Lebanon, most of them civilians, and about 160 in Israel. Nasrallah's speech added to the tension of back-and-forth warnings between Hezbollah and Israel that have escalated since a July 14 explosion at a suspected Hezbollah arms depot near the Israeli border. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that Israel would hold the Lebanese government responsible for any attacks on Israeli targets by Hezbollah. He warned Lebanon against letting Hezbollah join the new government. He said the government in Beirut could not turn a blind eye to Hezbollah's activities while the group sits in the Lebanese parliament and plays a major role in the country's politics. Nasrallah, appearing on a giant screen from his hiding place, addressed thousands of supporters waving yellow Hezbollah flags who gathered for the rally in south Beirut. He said recent Israeli warnings against Lebanon do not signal that Israel is planning to attack soon. He said the Israeli warnings were part of a "psychological war" aimed at preventing the militant group from joining a new Lebanese unity government, whose formation has been stalled since the June 7 election.

In an indictment police submitted to the district court in the northern town of Nazareth, the three were charged with murder, attempted murder and membership in an enemy organisation, police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said. A fourth Hezbollah member currently under arrest has not yet been charged, Rosenfeld said. The three are Hussein Suleiman, 22, Mohammed Sarour, 20, and Maher Housani, 30, Rosenfeld said. Suleiman is accused of planning events that sparked the 34-day war on July 12, in which Hezbollah militants infiltrated Israel to attack a border patrol, killing three soldiers and capturing two, Rosenfeld said. The defendant is also accused of involvement in other deadly attacks on soldiers. Sarour and Hourani are accused of taking part in attacks against soldiers along the border, Rosenfeld said. Rosenfeld claims the three have confessed to their part in the attacks and to receiving military training in Iran, Hezbollah's key sponsor.

In a joint news conference with Peretz, the army's chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz, said the strategic damage to Hezbollah from Israel's 16-day offensive is "enormous." He said Thursday's government decision to authorise the call up of tens of thousands of reserves was not meant to threaten anyone but rather to make the army ready for "all possibilities." However, he also said that Israel had no intention of waging war against Syria, which is a prime supporter of Hezbollah.

Wide top shot of crowds STORYLINE Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah appeared in public on Saturday for the first time in more than a year to take part in the most important religious event for Shiite Muslims. Television footage broadcast on Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV station and other stations showed the black-turbaned Nasrallah, surrounded by hundreds of thousands of people, taking part in Ashura commemorations in the Hezbollah stronghold of southern Beirut. The Hezbollah leader was expected to address the crowds later on Saturday. Nasrallah went into hiding for fear of an Israeli assassination. The last time he appeared in public was in September 2006 at a "Victory Rally" marking the end of a monthlong war between Israel and the militant Shiite group. Since then, he has only addressed his supporters through video-links or on television. During Israel's 34-day offensive in the summer of 2006, it threatened to kill Nasrallah as it did his predecessor in 1992. Ashura marks the death of Imam Hussein, the Prophet Muhammad's grandson, who died in a battle in 680 against the leader of what became the Sunni branch of Islam. The battle took place in Karbala, which is located in present day Iraq.

Cutaway of rally 6. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah leader: "No army in the world will be able to make us drop the weapons from our hands as long as these loyal people believe in the resistance." 7. Wide on crowd STORYLINE: Hundreds of thousands of Lebanese packed into an open square in Beirut's bombed out southern suburbs on Friday, for a "victory over Israel" rally organised by Hezbollah. The crowds waited in eager anticipation for the highlight of the event, a speech by Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, in what was his first public appearance since the end of Hezbollah's conflict with Israel. The crowd, waving hundreds of yellow Hezbollah flags, cheered ecstatically when Nasrallah appeared. The black turbaned cleric said Hezbollah possessed more than 20-thousand rockets, even after firing nearly 4-thousand rockets at Israel during the 34 days of fighting, and he vowed that the UN peacekeeping force deploying in the south and helping guard Lebanon's borders from new weapons shipments would not affect the organisation's arsenal. "No army in the world will be able to make us drop the weapons from our hands," he said. Nasrallah said that the US was behind Israel's war on Hezbollah, "in terms of its decisions, its arms, its planning, and its will and in terms of giving more time to the Zionists, from two to four weeks", he said, referring to the United States' refusal to demand Israel halt its bombardment of Lebanon. He also said he would not release two captured Israeli soldiers, except in an exchange for Lebanese prisoners. "Even if the whole world came, they wouldn't be able to save those two detainees". Nasrallah said he decided to appear at the rally despite threats to his life. Israeli warplanes destroyed Nasrallah's office and residence in southern Beirut in the early days of the month-long war. The leader last appeared in public on July 12, when he held a news conference and offered to trade two Israeli soldiers his militants captured earlier that day for prisoners being held by Israel. The cross-border raid sparked 34 days of fighting in Lebanon between Hezbollah and Israel.

"The termination of Israel from existence is a definite and compulsory result. It is a historical law, it is a divine rule, there is no escape from it."

Wide of rally STORYLINE Israel on Sunday freed a man it convicted of being a Hezbollah spy and sent him back to Lebanon, while Hezbollah turned over the remains of what it said were dead Israeli soldiers - in what could be the preliminary stage of a larger prisoner exchange between the two sides. Israeli authorities released Nasim Nisr early on Sunday after he completed a six-year sentence for espionage, driving him from a prison in central Israel to the northern Rosh Hanikra crossing. Cameramen surrounded the white van Nisr was sitting in as a blue gate swung open to allow him through the frontier. His lawyer, Smadar Ben Natan, said Nisr was very happy to be released. Nisr was born to a Jewish Lebanese mother and a Shiite Muslim father. He migrated to Israel from Lebanon years ago, and settled in the country. Nisr, 39, was born in Lebanon to a Jewish Lebanese mother and a Shiite Muslim father. Because of his Jewish ancestry, he later moved to Israel and became a citizen, and married twice. He has a 10-year-old son from his first wife and two daughters, aged 10 and 7, from his current wife. He was jailed in 2002 for six years for allegedly spying for Hezbollah. Nisr's return to the village of Naqoura was met with a huge celebrations, which included many of his family members as well as senior Hezbollah officials. "I wish all the prisoners a safe return to their homes. I wish them the happiness I feel today. I hope they can all return to their homes and to their mothers," said Valentine Sayegh, Nisr's mother told AP Television. Nabil Kaouk, a senior Hezbollah leader in southern Lebanon said that Nisr's release confirms "the success of the resistance's strategy for liberty and victory." Meanwhile, as Nisr returned home, Hezbollah officials handed over a brown wood box containing what they said were the remains of Israeli soldiers killed during the month long 2006 war in Lebanon. Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV showed the box being handed over to International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) representatives on the Lebanese Israeli border. "We are handing over the remains of a number of Israeli soldiers killed during the July 2006 war," Wafik Safa, Hezbollah's senior security coordinator told Al-Manar during the handover, but did not offer any further details. An Israeli security official confirmed that the remains were being transferred back to Israel. He said Hezbollah had agreed to turn over the remains as a "gesture" and the move was not coordinated with Israel. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity surrounding the ongoing negotiations. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah predicted last month that Israel will release prisoners it is holding "very soon," setting off speculation that a major swap was in the works. Israel is believed to be holding at least seven Lebanese in its prisons, while Hezbollah has been holding two Israeli soldiers it captured in a 2006 cross-border raid that sparked that year's month-long war. According to Israeli officials, the soldiers are believed to have been badly wounded, and Hezbollah has offered no proof that they are still alive.

For my part I say, even if we don't want this war to happen, the victory will be on our side and it will be definite and clear to the whole world and it will not leave and doubt about it ." 5. Elevated shot of scouts gathered in hall STORYLINE: The leader of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, launched a fiery attack on Israel on Sunday, in which he warned of a firm and decisive response to any future Israeli aggression against Lebanon. Sheik Hassan Nasrallah warned Israel that the results and repercussions of another war will exceed that of the inconclusive, month long 2006 conflict between Israel and Hezbollah, the mainly Shiite "Party of God". He said the Israeli army will be crushed in any ground offensive "in our mountains, valleys, homes and cities along with your state which usurped our holy land." Nasrallah accused Israeli Defence Minister, Ehud Barak, Israeli Deputy Prime Minister, Shaul Mofaz, Israeli Defence Force Chief of Staff, Gabi Ashkenazi, and Israeli Foreign Minister Tippi Livni of threatening Lebanon with renewed war. "They are saying it will be fast and accomplish a clear and definite victory," he said. "From my part I say even if we don't want this war to happen, the victory will be on our side and it will be definite and clear to the whole world and it will not leave and doubt about it," he added. Nasrallah made the threats at a scout graduation ceremony aired on Hezbollah's Al-Manar Television. The comments came after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Israel would hit back harder than in the 2006 war, without restrictions if Hezbollah attacked again. Olmert said Israel did not use all means to respond then, but "if Lebanon becomes a Hezbollah state, then we won't have any restrictions in this regard." Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora on Friday sent a letter of protest to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urging him to inform the Security Council's member nations of the "seriousness of the Israeli threats." More than 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians, were killed in the 2006 war, which began after Hezbollah captured two Israeli soldiers and killed three others in a cross-border raid. Lebanon's new national unity government has given Hezbollah and their allies veto power over all major decisions and also upheld Hezbollah's right to retain its weapons.

This is the victory of the free Muslims, of all the free Muslims in the world." The conflict between Hezbollah and Israel began on 12 July 2006 and lasted 34 days.

SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Hussein Rahal, Hezbollah spokesman: "From a moral point of view, the report is trying to justify to the Israeli army what it committed in the war. On the other hand, it puts the problem in how the decision of war was taken, and not in the moral problem of such a decision." 8. Close of Lebanese flag STORYLINE Hezbollah said on Wednesday that a report into Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's handling of Israel's 2006 war in Lebanon underlined the group's victory in the conflict. Olmert emerged relatively unscathed from the final report on his handling of the war, even though the inquiry criticised both the government and the army for "serious failings and flaws". "What Winograd's report said is the same as what the resistance was saying since the end of the war on the fourteenth of August, and that is the Israeli army has been defeated roughly and Israel lost the war," said Hussein Rahal, the Hezbollah spokesman in the Lebanese capital Beirut. "The second point is that Israel launched the war by its own decision and not by a Lebanese decision, and this is what the report confirms," he added. The report stopped short of blaming Olmert personally for what many Israelis saw as a stunning debacle that emboldened the Jewish state's enemies. A harsher indictment could have threatened Olmert's rule and his stated goal of signing a peace treaty with the Palestinians within a year. The head of a five-member investigative panel, 81-year-old retired judge Eliyahu Winograd, described a UN-brokered ceasefire as an "achievement for Israel" and said Olmert, in ordering a widely criticised last-minute ground offensive, acted "out of a strong and sincere perception" of what he thought was "Israel's interest". "From a moral point of view, the report is trying to justify to the Israeli army what it committed in the war," Rahal said. "On the other hand, it puts the problem in how the decision of war was taken, and not in the moral problem of such a decision," he added. Despite what appeared to be good news for Olmert, the commission did not pull punches in its description of his government's failures during the 34-day conflict that, according to official figures from both sides, killed between 1,035 and 1,191 Lebanese civilians and combatants, as well as to 119 Israeli soldiers and 40 civilians. Winograd told a packed news conference in Jerusalem that Israel did not win the war and the army did not provide an effective response to a sustained, deadly barrage of rocket fire from Lebanon's Hezbollah guerrillas. The war erupted on July 12, 2006, when Hezbollah guerrillas crossed into Israel, killed three Israeli soldiers and captured two others. Despite a heavy Israeli aerial campaign, the guerrilla group rained nearly 4,000 rockets on northern Israel.

Beirut 6. Pan on Hezbollah supporters applauding Nasrallah STORYLINE Hezbollah's leader told his supporters on Wednesday to be prepared to invade northern Israel, a day after Israel's defence minister warned that the quiet along the tense border would not last forever and the army may have to enter Lebanon again one day. "I tell the warriors of the holy Islamic resistance to be ready for a day when, if war is imposed on Lebanon, the resistance command might ask you to control the Galilee area," Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said as he addressed a rally in Beirut via video link on Wednesday. On Tuesday, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak toured the Israeli military's northern command and warned soldiers they may have to re-enter Lebanon. "This is not forever and it could under certain conditions deteriorate, and then you will have to be called on again, with everything you learned in training," he said. The comments by the two sides illustrate the fragile situation along the frontier since Hezbollah and Israel fought a 34-day war in 2006 that left 1,200 Lebanese and 160 Israelis dead. Also on Wednesday, a Hezbollah cell commander who escaped from an Egyptian prison during the country's recent uprising appeared at the same Beirut rally. Mohammed Youssef Mansour, better known as Sami Chehab, held up a Hezbollah flag and raised his hands in a V-for-victory sign Wednesday during the rally. The Shiite militant group says that Mansour was among the thousands of prisoners across Egypt who are believed to have escaped or been set free shortly after the revolt against long time President Hosni Mubarak erupted in late January. Mansour was convicted in 2010 along with 25 others of spying for Hezbollah and plotting attacks in Egypt.
