‘America is the Great Devil’: Hezbollah Chief Issues Threats in Pre-Recorded Bunker Speech, Open New Front if Israel Crushes Hamas
Obviously fears for his own life. Jerusalem Post: “The speech, while made public today, was pre-recorded. Nasrallah was not present in the building where the speech was displayed.”
Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah stayed in his bunker for his first public address since the October 7 massacre.
While thousands of terrorists and terror-supporters showed up for the speech in Beirut, the head of the Iran-backed Lebanese Shia-jihadist group was nowhere to be seen.
“The speech, while made public today, was pre-recorded. Nasrallah was not present in the building where the speech was displayed,” the Jerusalem Post noted.
Terror chief’s speech, replete with threats and insults directed at Israel and the U.S., failed to offer immediate military relief to the Gaza-based Hamas leadership facing an advancing Israeli ground force.
Nasrallah blamed the U.S. for the ongoing Israeli counter-terrorism operation in Gaza. “The US bears full responsibility for what is happening in Gaza, Israel is only the tool that carries out. The US is preventing a ceasefire and the cessation of attacks. As Khomeini said – America is the great devil,” he declared.

Fearful of an Israeli retaliation, the terror chief denied any prior knowledge of the attack and placed full responsibility for the October 7 bloodshed on the Palestinians. The Times of Israel reported:
Making his first speech since the Israel-Hamas broke out following the Palestinian terror group’s October 7 onslaught, Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah says the Lebanese terror group knew nothing about the assault ahead of time.
“The October 7 operation was planned in total secrecy, even other Palestinian factions were not privy to it, let alone resistance movements abroad,” Nasrallah says.
“The international community keeps bringing up Iran and its military plans, but the October 7 attack 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.”
Hiding from some dark hole, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah called the October 7 massacre a "glorious," and "blessed" operation.
He's been blathering for 20 minutes now and I can summarize his tirade as follows: Nasrallah is a coward who orders death and celebrates death. pic.twitter.com/W2lCQMMkwT

Nasrallah, whose terrorist organization is funded and armed by Iran, did vow to intensify cross-border attacks on Israel. The remarks comes as Hezbollah ramped up rocket attacks into northern Israel amid an ongoing ground offensive against Hamas in Gaza.
The Israeli news website Ynet reported:
In his first public speech since the onset of the Israel-Hamas war, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah that the fighting has expanded to more than one front.
“Today we commemorate the martyrs of Hezbollah, [Hamas’s] Al-Qassam Brigades, [Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s] Al-Quds Brigades and the civilian martyrs that Israel has killed, including journalists,” Nasrallah opened his speech. He claimed that “Al-Aqsa Flood [the name given by Hamas to the war] has expanded beyond a single front and arena.”

To help Islamic terrorist group Hamas achieve a ‘victory’ in the unfolding conflict, Nasrallah called upon all Muslim countries to unite against Israel and the United States. The Jerusalem Post reported:
“In our front, all options are open,” he insisted. “All the options are open to us and we studied all the options. We must be ready and be ready for all the options that could happen in the future.” (…)
He insisted that the first goal was to stop “aggression” against Gaza, and the second goal would be to ensure the victory of Hamas. He insisted that countries end trade with Israel and that Arab and Muslim countries cease sending oil to the United States.
The fact that Hezbollah won’t be launching a large-scale attack on Israel apparently disappointed many of Nasrallah’s Palestinian fans:

Gaza ground op: IDF takes out terrorists, captures weapons
As Israeli ground offensive in Gaza entered its seventh day, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) targeted Hamas leadership and terrorist fighting forces. Israeli military appears to have encircled Gaza city, the terrorist bastion in the northern part of the territory, and was taking on the Hamas terrorists in a pitched urban battle.
The Israeli losses from the week-long military operation have reached 24, the IDF sources confirm. “The IDF death toll reaches 24 since Gaza ground operation, after four more soldiers were killed,” the Israeli TV channel i24NEWS reported Thursday.

IDF disclosed the details of the overnight strikes in a early morning press release on Friday:
IDF fighter jets, acting on precise ISA and IDF intelligence, killed Mustafa Dalul, Commander of the Sabra Tel al-Hawa Battalion, who since the beginning of the war took a central part in managing the combat against IDF troops in the Gaza Strip. In recent years, Dalul held a number of positions in the Hamas battalion and brigade of Gaza City.
In addition, IDF fighter jets and artillery, directed by ground troops, killed a number of terrorists who operated against the ground troops. During searches in the area of Beit Hanoun, the troops located weapons, intelligence material, an AK-47 rifle, submachine gun, magazines, grenades, explosive devices, RPG, communication means, and maps.
Overnight, IDF fighter jets struck terror infrastructure and killed Hamas terrorists. In parallel, Israeli naval soldiers, directed by ground troops, struck a number of buildings from which shots were fired at the soldiers, and anti-tank missile launchers.
