Nasrallah to Mark End of July 2006 War by Making Televised Speech


Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is expected to make a televised speech on Friday to commemorate the end of July 2006 war with Israel.

Nasrallah will reportedly address the party’s supporters at 8:30 on Friday.

He is expected to tackle the local crises and the regional developments in his speech.

Hizbullah’s chief will also focus on the importance of maintaining stability in Lebanon and express solidarity with the constitutional institutions and the army.

Israel fought a devastating 33-day war against Hizbullah in 2006 that cost the lives of 1,200 people in Lebanon, mainly civilians, and 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers.

Nasrallah said in his latest interview with al-Akhbar newspaper on Thursday that there are “no red lines” in the “security war” with Israel.

Commenting on regional developments, he said: “What we have prepared for Israel was not affected by our actions in Syria.”

“We are a resistance but they want us to be a Shiite party for Arabs, and as we defended the South, we will defend our entire country and our border with Syria,” he declared.

“Many of those who were opposed to us are starting to change their stances,” he noted.
