BEIRUT - Lebanese Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Monday that Israel had failed to achieve its objectives in its campaign of air strikes and shelling in Gaza.

"The shelling is clearly and deliberately targeting civilians and killing women and children," he told supporters via a video screen in a speech to mark the Shi'ite Muslim holy day of Ashura.

"The military operation has failed to achieve its targets. The killing is aimed at putting pressure on the leadership of the resistance in the Gaza Strip to drop its conditions (for a truce)."

Israel launched an air campaign on Wednesday with the declared goal of deterring Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip, from launching rockets at its southern communities.
