Hezbollah secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah on Thursday praised the recent barrage of rockets fired from Gaza over southern Israel.

“The resistance was able to force a million and half a million of Israelis to stay in shelters,” Nasrallah said, lauding it as an achievement. Nasrallah was addressing newly graduated students from Hezbollah educational institutions via a screen during a graduation ceremony in Beirut.

He also accused the West of "double standard policy and hypocrisy" and said Israel was responsible for the escalations. "“Israel was who started the war when its occupation forces killed the leader of the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), Shiekh Zohair al-Qaisi in an airstrike,” he said.
