BEIRUT: Hezbollah warned Monday that U.S. military bases in the region could be targeted by Iran if Israel launched an attack on nuclear facilities in the Islamic Republic.

“Iran would not be forgiving if Israel attacks [Iran’s nuclear facilities]. The response would not be limited to Israel but all U.S. military bases in the region could be targets of attacks,” Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, Hezbollah’s secretary general, said in a rare face-to-face interview with Almayadeen television.

He added that the United States would bear responsibility for any action taken by the Jewish state.

Both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak have repeatedly spoken of the possibility of a unilateral strike against Iran, while the U.S. has said that it will not let Iran obtain an atomic bomb.
