The current round of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks will not succeed, Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said during a "Jerusalem Day" commemoration speech on Friday.
Nasrallah characterized the talks as "stillborn" and said, "Jerusalem, and not even one of its streets, can not be the capital of the state called Israel."
'Jerusalem Day paves the way for Israel's collapse'
'Hizbullah unlikely to go to war'
The Hizbullah chief's comments came hours after explosions ripped through a building Friday in southern Lebanon
that might - according to Lebanese security officials - have been used to store weapons for the terrorists group.
It was not clear whether there were any casualties from the blasts,
which set off a large fire, the officials said. Rescue crews responded
to the scene.
The three-story building is in the Hizbullah-dominated village of
Shehabiyeh, part of a volatile border zone south of the Litani River in
which Hizbullah has been banned from having weapons under a UN
resolution that ended the 2006 war between the terror group and Israel.
