The Lebanese Hezbollah says it will not give up its missiles

BEIRUT – Lebanese Hezbollah leader says his government should not give in to diplomatic pressure aimed at freeing his group from its missile arsenal.

Hassan Nasrallah said on Saturday that neither threats nor sanctions will force his group to abandon their skills, including a rocket arsenal that Israel considers concerned.

Nasrallah says Lebanon should not succumb to diplomatic pressure because "yielding" would allow Israel to attack Lebanon.

His speech was broadcast on a large screen to supporters in the southern district of Beirut.

Nasrallah said his group would respond to any attacks from Israel.

His comments came after the Israeli media reported that the Jewish state had asked the Lebanese government through a mediator to take action against Hezbollah's rocket factories, or that it would take military action.
