Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said Hezbollah was "stronger than at any time since it was launched," in a televised speech Tuesday. Delivering an address marking the anniversary of the end of Israel's 2006 War on Lebanon, Nasrallah said Hezbollah's arms, equipment, numbers and determination have never been stronger.He asserted the strength of Hezbollah's forces compared to Israel's. Addressing Hezbollah's role in Syria, where it is fighting alongside the forces of President Bashar Assad, Nasrallah said the group would celebrate victory "very soon". Nasrallah claimed Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu had changed his stance and has now accepted the Syrian regime and army remaining in power, but is insisting on the ouster of Hezbollah and Iran from Syrian territory.
