In a nationally televised speech on Tuesday, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah praised efforts made by his terrorist organization against Israel since the start of the Gaza war seven months ago.

“Hezbollah will continue its border battle against the Israeli enemy in support of Gaza,” Nasrallah said as quoted by state-run Mehr News Agency. “Gaza’s steadfastness in the face of the Zionist war has revitalized the Palestinian cause all over the world.”

During his speech, Nasrallah falsely claimed that Israel had lost 1,500 troops throughout the war. Official numbers from the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) state that 620 soldiers have been killed since October 7, with 272 of those deaths occurring since the beginning of the ground invasion in Gaza.

“30% of Zionists now believe the entity is unsuitable for a decent life, according to Israeli polls,” he further claimed, adding that “Israel has also failed to reconstruct the deterrence image in the face of the entire Arab resistance axis.”

According to the Times of Israel, skirmishes between Hezbollah and Israel along the border have resulted in nine civilian deaths on the Israeli side, as well as the deaths of 14 IDF soldiers and reservists. Hezbollah has reported 296 terrorists who have been killed by Israel, mostly in Lebanon but some also in Syria, and at least 60 civilians casualties in the ongoing conflict.
