Hezbollah Leader Regrets Kidnapping that Led to War with Israel

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah says he regrets the kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers that sparked more than a month of warfare with Israel. Nasrallah told Lebanese television Sunday if he had known the kidnapping would have led to such a war, he would not do it again.

He also said Italy and the United Nations have shown interest in taking part in possible talks on a prisoner exchange between Israel and Hezbollah.

Hezbollah seized the two Israeli soldiers during a cross-border raid July 12. The raid led to 34 days of fighting between Israel and Hezbollah fighters and widespread destruction in Lebanon.
