BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah conducted a televised speech on Monday in which he touched on a number of topics, including the prospects of war with Israel.
While the Hezbollah leader ruled out “the possibility of a renewed Israeli war,” he did say that the “Israeli Air Force can no longer carry out a battle, and Israel itself says that it is not ready for a ground battle.” However, Nasrallah pointed to the need to remain alert to all possibilities.
The Secretary-General also expressed surprise towards the world’s silence about Trump’s actions against Iran, “since this gives an excuse for violating other peoples in various countries of the world,” calling for “rejecting these arrogant American policies, whether in support of the war on Yemen or sanctions against Iran or against the Palestinian people.”
Nasrallah highlighted “the importance of hope in the lives of peoples as an alternative to despair that leads to surrender,” praising “the steadfastness of the Palestinian people,” in addition to “the events in Lebanon when some ruled out the ability to resist Israel.”
“If despair had filled our souls, Lebanon would have been under occupation and Trump would have donated it to Israel!” he exclaimed.
