Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese Shia armed group Hezbollah, is going to give a speech on Friday about the ongoing Israeli aggression in Gaza. He is scheduled to deliver the speech around 3pm local time.
This influential leader of Hezbollah has not commented on the Gaza-Israel conflict so far. He is going to talk about this for the first time today. It is believed that the Hezbollah chief will indicate the group’s next steps in response to the Israeli attack. The British media reported the news.
Nasrallah’s speech has been discussed, but as always, his whereabouts remain a mystery. It is expected that he will give a speech in memory of the fighters killed in the Israeli attack from the Hezbollah stronghold south of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon.
Meanwhile, the armed group Hamas has repeatedly called on its allies to join the war in Hamas’ ongoing conflict with Israel. Many are skeptical that Hezbollah will respond to that call. Many analysts are also hoping that this issue will be clarified after Nasrallah’s speech.
The armed group Hezbollah, like Hamas, has been identified as a terrorist organization by the United Kingdom, the United States and their other allies.
After the Hamas attack on Israel on October 7, Israel has been bombing Gaza for four consecutive weeks. In the meantime, Lebanon’s Hezbollah forces are involved in a conflict with Israel on the Lebanese border. There have also been several incidents of Israel’s attacks and counter-attacks with Hezbollah, which is known as an ally of Hamas. There are fears that the region could turn into another area of conflict.
