Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said during a televised speech on Thursday, that Hezbollah supports the Palestinian Hamas Movement call for a “new Intifada” against Israel in Palestine. The Intifada was declared in protest to a decision of US president Donald Trump to recognize the city of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Nasrallah called on the Arab League and the Islamic world to provide a political, media, financial and even military support for the Palestinian people so they can launch the “new Intifada” against Israel.
“The most important response would be a Palestinian uprising and an Islamic summit that would declare Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Palestine … We support the call for a new Palestinian intifada [uprising] and escalating the resistance which is the biggest, most important and gravest response to the American decision,” Nasrallah said during his speech, according to the Lebanese Naharnet TV.
Moreover, Nasrallah questioned the fate of the Palestinians who live now in Jerusalem after it becomes the capital of Israel, and even the fate of the Lebanese Shebaa farms, and the Syrian Golan Heights that the US does not recognize as part of Israel as for now.
“What will be the fate of the Palestinian residents in Jerusalem? What will be the fate of the Palestinian properties in Jerusalem? Will they be appropriated or demolished?” Nasrallah said.
The Hezbollah leader said that Trump’s decision should be a “motive” for everyone to hold the responsibility and ignore the voices that will say soon that what happened is “not important”. Nasrallah also doubted the credibility of Israel and the US.
“The leaders of the Zionist entity [Israel] don’t respect the international resolutions, and don’t respect the international conventions or treaties … The Zionists don’t even respect the agreement that they signed, nor the international will, or the what the Arab, European countries, Russia, China or Latin America say, and what the Zionists mainly care about is what America says” Nasrallah said according to the Lebanese al-Manar TV
The Nasrallah statement will likely boost the Hamas Movement confidence to start a large wave of protests all over the Palestinian areas on Friday. Such large protests could increase the pressure on the US, Israel and even the Palestinian government.
