Combination Shot on Opponent's Ball

Combination Shot on Opponent's Ball

Is it legal to make a combination shot off an opponents ball first?

Can a person hit his opponent's ball in order to get to their ball?

This is probably an easy one, but I'm a new pool player, as far as sticking to the rule sets is concerned.

This question relates to the following billiard rules:

    You have to hit your own ball first.

    If the table is closed (meaning choice of group has been determined), you must hit one of the balls from your own group first, or it is a scratch.

    The 8 ball is neither a solid nor a stripe.

    This includes all combination shots.
