Hizbullah has the right to possess an air defense system to face the Israeli warplanes that regularly fly over Lebanon, the leader of the group, Hassan Nasrallah said on Monday. Nasralah refused to confirm or deny persistent Israeli reports that Hizbullah may have acquired anti-aircraft missiles, but he said during his speech that an air defense system would change the balance of power by shattering Israel's air superiority. Nasrallah spoke via a video link to a rally commemorating last year's assassination of Hizbullah's top military commander Imad Mughniyeh, who was killed in a car bomb in the Syrian capital of Damascus.
