The world has been holding its breath in anticipation of Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah's address.

Now, the moment has arrived.

Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, the leader of the Hezbollah militia in Lebanon, has delivered his first televised speech following the Hamas attacks, stating that the conflict between Israel and Hamas has now expanded to more than one front. This is reported by Al Jazeera.

In his address, he began by honoring Palestinian and Lebanese 'martyrs', as well as expressing gratitude to Iraqis and Yemenis.

He also took the opportunity to describe the October 7 terror attack as a 'credible jihad', according to reports from Reuters and Al Jazeera.

Nasrallah added that the individuals behind the conflict have kept it completely secret. "This battle is entirely Palestinian, for the Palestinian people, and unrelated to other issues in the region," he stated in the television broadcast.
