BEIRUT - Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Syria would respond to alleged Israeli raids around Damascus last week by providing his group with sophisticated weapons, hinting that such arms could change the balance of power between Israel and the Lebanese guerrilla group.

"If the aim of your (Israel's) attack was to prevent the strengthening of the resistance's capabilities, then Syria will give the resistance sophisticated weapons the like of which it hasn't seen before," he said in a televised speech on Thursday.

"The resistance is prepared to accept any sophisticated weaponry even if it was to break the balance (of force)."
