nasrallahIran could strike U.S. bases in the Middle East in response to any Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities, the leader of Lebanon’s Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah said today.

“A decision has been taken to respond and the response will be very great,” Hassan Nasrallah said in an interview with the Beirut-based Al Mayadeen television, according to a report in the Hebrew Haaretz.

“The response will not be just inside the Israeli entity – American bases in the whole region could be Iranian targets,” he said. “If Israel targets Iran, America bears responsibility.”

Nasrallah, reports Haaretz, also said that Hezbollah has no chemical weapons but can still cause great damage to Israel if there is a war.
