BEIRUT: Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah will make a televised speech Thursday at 6 p.m. in response to the U.S. decision to recognize occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

A statement released by Hezbollah announced Nasrallah’s plans to make the speech, which comes after U.S. President Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday in a move he labelled "long overdue.”
