Iran may attack Israel directly, Nasrallah warns in Quds Day speech

Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah warned Israel against continuing its “aggression against the Iranian presence in the region,” saying Iran may “attack Israel directly” during a video address delivered at a ceremony in Beirut on Friday as Iran and its proxies marked Quds Day.

Nasrallah pushed what he called the “regional equation on Jerusalem” and called on countries in the region to send a message to Israel that “the demise of Jerusalem means the demise of Israel.”

Nasrallah’s speech comes after weeks of tensions in Jerusalem and multiple days of clashes on the Temple Mount between Muslim rioters and Israeli forces
