Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah underlined in a televised speech Wednesday the substantial role played by the Lebanese support front in the war on Gaza in the face of the Israeli occupation.

“The battle on the Lebanese front has played a very significant role, causing material, moral, and psychological losses to the enemy,” he stressed during the memorial service for Hezbollah senior leader Hajj Sami Taleb Abdullah and his companions, who were martyred days earlier in an Israeli strike in southern Lebanon.

He questioned the portrayal of events on the southern front, suggesting that the intensity of Israeli responses indicates a more serious situation. “If what is happening on the southern front was a routine matter, then why these strenuous efforts to stop it, and why all the screams, intimidation, wailing, and threats?” he asked.

Sayyed Nasrallah also mentioned the potential for further escalation, noting, “The possibility of invading al-Jalil remains on the table should the confrontation escalate.”

Addressing Israeli casualties, the Resistance leader accused the Israeli occupation of concealing its losses in the north. “The enemy hides its losses on the northern front but could not conceal the number of those who have evacuated settlements,” he asserted.

He criticized the global media’s portrayal of the war, saying, “Since the beginning of Operation al-Aqsa Flood, there has been a global media machine whose mission is to belittle the actions of the support fronts and the resistance in Gaza.”

Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that the Israeli occupation was deliberately hiding its losses in the north to avoid further pressure. He provided specific figures on evacuations, stressing that “42 settlements have been completely evacuated, and life has been disrupted in several others.”

Moreover, he stated that the Israeli military and security image was deteriorating. “The deterrent military-security image of the enemy is collapsing in front of its people, its society, and the world,” he concluded.

Increasing losses

“They failed to protect Israeli ships, which is a huge failure for the two most important naval fleets in the world, primarily the American fleet,” the Hezbollah chief stressed.

Sayyed Nasrallah drew two conclusions from the Yemeni front: “First, the American-British failure, and second, the Israeli inability to fight on that front.”

He criticized the Israeli occupation’s pursuit of false victories, stating, “The enemy is panting after a false and fabricated victory that has no basis in reality, just to present it to its audience as a victory.”

The Hezbollah chief highlighted significant losses inflicted on the Israeli occupation by Gaza and the West Bank, as well as from Lebanon, Yemen, and Iraq.

“The enemy understood since October 8 that its positions would be targeted and that we have enough information about them, their fortifications, their equipment, and their numbers,” he said. “We are continuing to strike enemy positions within a certain and specific schedule,” he declared.

Sayyed Nasrallah detailed the Resistance’s strategy to “blind” and “deafen” the Israeli occupation. “The resistance followed a strategy of blinding the enemy and deafening its ears by targeting technical equipment, radars, balloons, and more,” he explained.

Operation hoopoe

“We have a very, very, very large amount of information, and yesterday’s release is selected from many hours over Haifa,” he stressed about the Military Media of the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon – Hezbollah releasing Tuesday footage showing its reconnaissance drones flying over swathes of occupied Palestinian land, including Kiryat Shmona, Nahariya, Safad, Karmiel, Afula, all the way to Haifa and its port.

In detail, the video first shows Hezbollah’s drones flying over a military-industrial complex belonging to Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, which includes numerous factories, warehouses, and testing fields in which components of air defense systems are manufactured and assembled, especially the Iron Dome and David’s Sling.

Iron Dome and David’s Sling platforms, rocket engine test tunnel and storage, air defense missile storage, missile component manufacturing facilities, control and guidance systems factories, company administrative buildings, and missile testing radars, all appeared in the video.

“We have long hours of footage of Haifa and its surroundings, covering what is north of Haifa, what is beyond Haifa, and what is beyond, beyond Haifa,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

“We have developed our weapons, used new ones, and are keeping other weapons for the coming days to defend our land, our people, and Lebanon’s sovereignty,” he asserted. “We have fought only with part of our weaponry until now, and we have obtained new weapons which we will not disclose; this will become evident on the battlefield.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also underlined that the Resistance yielded unprecedented manpower.

He addressed the Israeli occupation’s actions in Syria, claiming their failure. “The enemy conducted a battle amidst war in Syria and was met with failure. Everything that was supposed to reach Lebanon has arrived,” he noted.

Hezbollah well-equiped

“The enemy knows well that we have prepared ourselves for the worst days and knows what awaits it, which is why it has been deterred for the past 8-9 months,” Sayyed Nasrallah said. He emphasized that no location within occupied Palestine was safe from Hezbollah’s missiles and drones. “The enemy knows that there will be no place safe from our missiles and drones, and [our attacks] will not consist of random bombing.”

Nasrallah claimed that Hezbollah possessed a comprehensive and real target bank with the capability to reach all targets, destabilizing the foundation of the Israeli occupation. He also warned that “the enemy knows that what awaits it in the Mediterranean Sea is also very significant.”

“The enemy knows it must expect us on land, in the air, and at sea, and if war is imposed, the resistance will fight without constraints, rules, or limits,” he declared.

In a stark statement, he warned the Cypriot government about allowing its airports and bases to be used by the Israeli occupation. “The Cypriot government should be warned that opening its airports and bases to the enemy to target Lebanon means it has become part of the war.”

Sayyed Nasrallah described the ongoing confrontation as the greatest battle since 1948 with a clear and bright horizon that will change the face of the region and shape its future.

He concluded by reaffirming Hezbollah’s steadfastness and readiness to engage in this historic battle until victory. “We affirm the solidity of our position and our readiness to continue this historic, humanitarian, and moral stance until victory,” he concluded.
