BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:15 A.M.) – Secretary General of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah delivered a speech on Quds Day, Friday in Beirut in which he discussed the day’s historical background and the broader situation in the Middle East.

Nasrallah said the Palestinian nation was being exposed to “Embargo, starvation, cutting the power, disruptions of hospitals, arrests and imprisonment, starvation, murdering based on suspicion”

He blamed Israel for aiming to “make Palestinians desperate and Palestinian leaders desperate so that they settle for anything.”

On Iran and Saudi Arabia, Nasrallah said “Saudi Arabia is weaker, not capable, and too cowardly to launch a war on the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

Nasrallah also blamed Saudia Arabia, the United States, Gulf countries and Turkey for the creation of so-called Islamic State(IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL).

Al-Quds day, which falls on the last day of the month of Ramadan, was introduced in 1979 by late Iranian leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini as a day of protest against Zionism and Israel’s control of Jerusalem.
