Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said on Thursday his forces would support any Syrian effort to recapture the Israeli Golan Heights, days after Israel reportedly launched raids in Syria believed to have targeted weapons destined for the Lebanese militant group.

"We announce that we stand with the Syrian popular resistance and offer material and spiritual support as well as coordination in order to liberate the Syrian Golan," he said in a televised speech.

Nasrallah also said Syria would provide 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 [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.

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