Nasrallah ends speculations over his health by TV speech

TEHRAN, Jun. 08 (MNA) – The Secretary General of Lebanese Resistance group Hezbollah's speech on the 30th anniversary of Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV on Tuesday ended speculations over his health.

Lebanese Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah started to deliver a speech on Tuesday evening on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Al-Manar TV network.

In his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah reassured supporters that he has recovered and is now in good health, reiterating his hope that he prays at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

According to Nasrallah,  Al-Manar is a non-profit TV Channel that was established in order to raise a certain cause.

Al-Manar is a Lebanese satellite television station owned and operated by the Lebanese Resistance group Hezbollah, broadcasting from Beirut, Lebanon. The channel was launched on 4 June 1991.

Since its start, the TV network has played an important role in covering resistance operations against the Zionist occupiers in southern Lebanon. Al-Manar Network was also very active in covering the events of the liberation struggle in southern Lebanon in 2000.

Al-Manar's policy, as its officials have always emphasized, has been to strengthen unity between Muslims and Arabs. This network considers defending the resistance against the Zionist regime as its main strategy and seeks to bring the voice of truth to the world.

The Hezbollah leader added that Al-Manar TV started its satellite broadcast in order to provide media coverage to the Palestinian Intifada in 2000.
He further added that Al-Manar is the Palestinian cause TV.

Nasrallah also pointed to the recent developments in occupied Palestinian lands, saying that the Prime Minister of the Israeli regime Benjamin Netanyahu has failed and recent attacks on the Palestinians in holy Quds is an attempt by Netanyahu to escape from the crisis he has created.

"The political crisis in the Zionist entity may push the Israeli officials to commit a folly against the Palestinians and the entire Umma," he underscored.

On the other side, he noted, the Palestinians in Gaza, West Bank, and 1948-occupied territories insist on defending Al-Quds and all the sanctities.

He stressed that the entire Muslim Ummah must act responsibly in support of Palestinians.

Nasrallah added that any aggression on Quds would ignite a regional war.

He referred to the remarks made by Yemeni Leader Abdul Malik al-Houthi on Quds, saying that "We are seriously working to consecrate Al-Quds formula, adopted initially by Yemen’s Sayyed Abdul Malik Al-Houthi." 

He added that NileSat and Arabsat blocked Al-Manar TV broadcast due to its support to Yemenis against the Saudi-led coalition.

According to Hezbollah leader, "Holy God helped us to order the evacuation of Al-Manar TV headquarters during 2006 War a few minutes before the Zionist warplanes bombed it."

Nasrallah went on to touch upon the political situation in Lebanon, saying that “Hezbollah rejects the early elections in Lebanon and insists on the creation of the new government as soon as possible.”

He also pointed out that the fuel problem in Lebanon can be solved by Iran but it needs a brave political decision.

 “If the Lebanese government fails to address the fuel crisis, Hezbollah will import fuel from Iran.”

The Hezbollah chief further called on Lebanese ministers to fight hoarding and the people who store basic goods with the hope of selling them in the future at higher prices.

He said that “We must act to reduce the suffering of the people.”

Nasrallah concluded by saying that, "The formation of a new government is the natural way to deal with financial and economic crises.”
