BEIRUT, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- Hezbollah Leader Hassan Nasrallah on Friday refuted Israeli prime minister's claims that Hezbollah is keeping missiles in three different sites near Lebanon's Rafic Hariri International Airport.

"We are not forced to give any justifications whenever Netanyahu brings up a topic. It is wrong to give answers. In fact, denying is also considered an answer," he said in a televised speech on Local TV Channel Al Manar.

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed earlier this month that Hezbollah was keeping missiles in three different sites near the airport in capital Beirut.

This has prompted Caretaker Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil to lead a tour for ambassadors and journalists to two of the locations mentioned by Israel to prove to the public that Netanyahu's claims are false.

"We thank Minister Bassil for his efforts and his diplomacy in proving that Netanyahu's claims are false," said Nasrallah.

"We should not help the enemy in its psychological war against Lebanon," he added.
