Hezbollah: attacks on Jerusalem mean regional war

Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah delivered a televised speech from an undisclosed bunker in Lebanon, during which he levelled a hostile threat to the State of Israel.

Any attack on Jerusalem, as he put it, “means a regional war,” said Nasrallah, adding that, “When the holy city, and Muslim and Christian holy sites in the holy city, face serious and real threats, there are no red lines nor artificial boundaries.”

The leader of the Iranian proxy group stressed that Hezbollah is not positioning itself as a substitute for Palestinians, but rather as to “stand behind and next to them” in the battle for Jerusalem.

This, despite the lack of Hezbollah participation with the recent fighting against Israel by the Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terror groups in Gaza.

It is noteworthy that throughout his speech, Nasrallah was plagued by a relentless cough indicating apparent respiratory difficulties.
