Hizbollah Warns Syria Supplying 'New Weapons'

Hizbollah says it will gain an arsenal of "sophisticated" weapons from Syria following Israeli strikes on the capital Damascus.

The claim was made by the group's leader, Hassan Nasrallah, as Britain warned it would push the EU to designate Hizbollah's military wing as a terrorist organisation.

It follows a series of raids and air strikes around Damascus which Israeli sources, quoted by Reuters, said were designed to take out "game-changing" Iranian missiles destined for use by Hizbollah.
