BEIRUT, (Reuters) – Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Saturday his guerrilla group would fire more rockets at central Israeli cities if Israel’s offensive in Lebanon was not halted.

In a speech televised on Hezbollah’s television channel, Nasrallah said he believed Israel wanted a ceasefire but was being pressured by Washington to continue the conflict.

He said U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who arrived in Israel on Saturday, had come to impose conditions and serve the Jewish state.
