Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah on Wednesday threatened "no place" in Israel would be spared from the group's weapons in case of a full-blown war, after Israel said operational plans for an attack on Lebanon had been approved.

"The enemy knows well that we have prepared ourselves for the worst... and that no place... will be spared our rockets," Nasrallah said in a televised address. Israel must "wait for us on land, by sea and by air", he added.

The Lebanese resistance leader also warned the nearby island of Cyprus if it opened its airports and bases to Israel in the event of total war.

"Opening Cypriot airports and bases to the Israeli enemy to target Lebanon would mean that the Cypriot government is part of the war, and the resistance will deal with it as part of the war," Nasrallah said added.

The Lebanese resistance group has published a 9-minute video, taken by a drone, showing Israeli military and civilian locations in several Israeli cities. 

Later the group fired a barrage of more than a dozen projectiles into northern Israel, a day after Tel Aviv threatened of a “total war," saying it had approved operational plans for an attack on Lebanon.
