Lebanese Hezbollah leader Nasrallah reassures about health and thanks supporters
Lebanese Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said his health was good and thanked everyone who asked in a televised speech on Tuesday.
âA human is a human being, sometimes you are sick or tired,â Nasrallah said.
Nasrallah appeared ill in his last speech on May 25, when he was coughing all over the place, but then said he suffered from allergies and nothing serious.
âSome people killed us and others started looking for a successor, I reassure them,â Nasrallah said, referring to rumors on social media after his last appearance which hinted at a serious illness.
Nasrallah led the Iranian-backed Hezbollah armed movement for nearly three decades, turning it from one of Lebanon’s many civil war militias into a regional influence group.
âThere are people who expressed their love and distributed bread and salt and wrote and called and I reassure them, some sent medicine and honey,â Nasrallah said.
“I cherish their love and thank everyone.”
