Hassan Nasrallah, the secretary-general of Hezbollah, gave a televised address on Friday vowing to “displace millions of Israelis in the coming war...if it was imposed on Lebanon.”

The Lebanese Shi’ite leader made the remarks just days after Israeli authorities conducted air raid drills. Some Israeli military officers have been quoted in recent weeks as saying that a future confrontation with Hezbollah would result in large numbers of displaced Lebanese.Earlier this week, a senior military source said that in the event of a new conflict with Hezbollah, the IDF would seek to evacuate more than a million civilians in south Lebanon within 24 hours before proceeding to strike thousands of Hezbollah targets in some 240 villages and built-up regions.



In his speech on Friday, Nasrallah dismissed the threats as “psychological warfare.”
