Hizbollah claims right to own anti-aircraft weapons

BEIRUT, Feb 16 (KUNA) -- Secretart General of Hizbollah party Hassan Nasrallah declared Monday at a rally of his supporters that his party had the right to bear arms and to use air power in any confrontation with Israel.
"The time where we were weak and defenseless is gone because now we have the right to own weapons and to use them with strength," he told the rally at a suburb of Beirut.
He indicated that Israel had superiority in air power, but nevertheless feared Hizbollah's acquisition of anti-aircraft weapons, which would bring into the fore a different equation of power. He insinuated in his speech to the supporters that his party might obtain antit-aircraft weapons and use them if necessary.
