Hezbollah leader commends Hamas for October 7 attack

Nasrallah's speech acknowledges complexities, supports Hamas, and cautions against further escalation

Newsroom

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah delivered a significant speech following four weeks of conflict in Gaza, addressing the ongoing war's regional implications and expressing support for Hamas' actions.

Nasrallah acknowledged the multifaceted nature of the conflict, thanking Iraqis and Yemenis for their involvement while emphasizing that Hezbollah was not aware of Hamas' initial October 7 attack plans. He characterized the war as a Palestinian matter unrelated to wider regional issues.

Nasrallah praised Hamas' attack on Israelis and also commended attacks on U.S. bases in Syria and Iraq by forces of the "Islamic resistance." He critiqued Israel's strategic goals and called for the return of hostages through negotiations. Nasrallah held the United States responsible for the Gaza conflict and deemed it a battle of paramount significance with the goal of securing Hamas and Gaza's victory.

Despite escalating military operations by Hezbollah near the Israel-Lebanon border, Nasrallah urged Israel to avoid a preemptive military operation against Lebanon to prevent a broader regional war. He emphasized Hezbollah's readiness for all scenarios and called for an end to Israeli operations in Gaza to prevent further escalation.
