Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has said that all options are on the table against Israel
Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has said that all options are on the table against Israel, urging the Zionist regime to stop its aggression against Palestinians in Gaza immediately.
According to Press TV, speaking in a televised speech on Friday, Nasrallah repeated that Hezbollah is ready for all possibilities.
The Hezbollah chief said whoever wants to prevent a regional war, must quickly stop the Israeli aggression against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
He warned the United States that preventing a regional war depended on stopping the Israeli attack on Gaza, and there was a realistic possibility of fighting on the Lebanese front turning into a “wide war”.
“You, the Americans, can stop the aggression against Gaza because it is your aggression. Whoever wants to prevent a regional war, and I am talking to the Americans, must quickly halt the aggression on Gaza,” Nasrallah said.
“You, the Americans, know very well that if war breaks out in the region, your fleets will be of no use, nor will fighting from the air be of any benefit, and the one who will pay the price will be… your interests, your soldiers and your fleets,” he said.
Addressing the US deployment of warships in the region, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah said Hezbollah is not intimidated.
He said that Hezbollah is prepared to act against US navy ships in the Mediterranean Sea.
“I tell you with all sincerity, we have prepared well for your fleets, with which you are threatening us,” he said.
He said that the Lebanese resistance movement entered the battle against Israel on October 8, the day after Palestinian resistance movements launched its surprise operation against Israeli occupation forces.
Nasrallah said the daily exchange of fire with Israeli forces along the Lebanese border might seem modest but it is very important, calling it unprecedented since 1948.
Nasrallah also said Hezbollah’s operations against Israel are significant and unprecedented in history.
The Hezbollah chief said that 57 Hezbollah fighters have been martyred so far.
Nasrallah made the remarks in his first address since the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip began on October 7.
He blamed the United States for being entirely responsible for the aggression the Israeli regime is perpetrating against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip and called Israel merely an executive tool.
‘Operation Al-Aqsa Storm was 100% Palestinian’
The Hezbollah secretary general also said that Operation Al-Aqsa Storm was carried out entirely by Palestinian resistance movements.
“The great Al-Aqsa Storm Operation was decided and implemented 100 percent by Palestinians,” he said.
“Absolute secrecy is what ensured the success of the Al-Aqsa Storm operation on October 7,” added the chief of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement.
“We were not bothered by Hamas’s concealment of the October 7 attack plan,” he stated.
“Conditions in Palestine in recent years have been extremely harsh, especially with this extremist, foolish, stupid, and savage [Israeli] regime,” he said.
“The Operation Al-Aqsa Storm led to an earthquake in Occupied Palestine,” he said.
“It has strategic and existential repercussions and will leave its effects on the present and future of [Israel],” he stated.
He said that what is happening in Gaza shows Israel’s foolishness and inability because what it is doing is massacring children and women.
The Hezbollah leader called Israel “frail” and said that for a whole month, it has been unable to record a single military achievement.
Nasrallah offered “condolences and congratulations” to the families of those martyred in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.
“This is a seamless battle at the human, ethical and religious levels. It’s the most evident, the most honest and the most noble,” he stated.
“Our true strength lies in our firm belief, unshaken conviction, our devotion and commitment to the cause,” the Hezbollah chief said.
Nasrallah began the speech by praising “the fallen martyrs” of Hezbollah and the other resistance groups fighting Israel, as well as the civilian martyrs.
“I start by offering my deepest condolences to the families of the fallen here in Lebanon, and at the same we congratulate you as your loved ones have won the honor of martyrdom,” he stated.
“We must salute the… strong and brave Iraqi and Yemeni hands who are now involved in this holy war,” he noted.
“There had to be a major event that would shake the usurping entity and its supporters in Washington and London and this is when the blessed Operation of the October 7 took place.”
Earlier this week, a high-ranking Hezbollah official disclosed the United States’ recent messages to the Lebanese resistance movement, in which Washington had implored the group to abstain from entering into a conflict with the Israeli regime.
“These messages, conveyed separately and repeatedly, bear the collective plea of the United States and some of its allies, urging Hezbollah to refrain from engaging in battle with the Zionist regime,” he stated.
The Hezbollah official highlighted that his movement’s response has been “unequivocal,” underscoring the group’s independence and unwavering commitment to its own agenda.
Hezbollah has warned that it will join the Palestinian resistance group Hamas and its allies in the fight against Israel if the regime escalates its aggression on Gaza and in case foreign military forces intervene to help the Israeli regime in the battle.
US claims it does not want to see war ‘expand into Lebanon’
The United States claimed on Friday that it does not want to see the Israel war in Gaza “expand into Lebanon,” after Nasrallah said “all options” were open.
“We and our partners have been clear: Hezbollah and other actors — state or non-state — should not try to take advantage of the ongoing conflict,” a spokesperson from the National Security Council said.
Nasrallah said the United States was “entirely responsible” for the ongoing Israeli aggression.
Asked for a response, the National Security Council spokesperson said: “We will not engage in a war of words.”
Israel has intensified its bombardment of Gaza, particularly in the north of the enclave, as military spokesperson says Israeli ground forces are “expanding operations”.
