Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen TV has reported that the Hezbollah Resistance Movement Seyed Hassan Nasrallah is in full health and an interview with him will be broadcast in the coming days.
Nasrallah has not been seen in public since November, when he criticized a possible ceasefire between Hamas and Israel.
Hezbollah’s leader, Hassan Nasrallah, reportedly had been hospitalized after suffering a heart attack last week, the newspaper Israel Hayom reported, citing Lebanese journalist Jerry Mahar.
According to Mahar’s source, “a senior figure in the Hezbollah organization was hospitalized” on Saturday in Beirut, while other sources confirmed that it was Nasrallah, adding that he “has been fighting cancer for years”.
Israel and Hezbollah last clashed in 2006, with Israeli forces invading Lebanon after Hezbollah kidnapped two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid.
Ties between Israel and Lebanon further deteriorated after the IDF launched Operation Northern Shield in early December 2018, destroying suspected Hezbollah tunnels used to funnel militants and arms across the Israel-Lebanon border.
