Hezbollah Leader Denies Prior Knowledge of October 7 Operation

The recent conflict between Israel and Hamas has seen a new development. Hezbollah’s leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has stated that the Lebanese group had no prior knowledge of the October 7 operation. This operation was meticulously planned in complete secrecy, with even other Palestinian factions being kept unaware of it. Nasrallah made his first speech since the beginning of the conflict, expressing his condolences and congratulations to the families of those who lost their lives in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

Nasrallah emphasized that the assault was entirely Palestinian in origin, carried out by Palestinians for the Palestinian cause, and had no connection to international or regional matters. He further clarified that the operation was a 100% Palestinian operation, planned and executed by Palestinians for the Palestinian cause. It has no relation at all to any international or regional issues.

The Hezbollah leader said that Israel can get back the captives held in Gaza through negotiations. He added that what is happening in Gaza shows Israel’s foolishness and inability because what they are doing is killing children and women. He called Israel “frail”, saying for a whole month it could not offer a single military achievement.

Nasrallah accused the US of being entirely responsible for the war in Gaza and calls Israel merely an executive tool. He has asserted that the Hezbollah had no prior knowledge of the October 7 operation. Nasrallah emphasized that the assault was meticulously planned in complete secrecy, with even other Palestinian factions being kept unaware of it.

In the latest updates, the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza has said at least 9,061Palestinians have been killed and 32,000 people wounded in Israeli strikes since October 7.
