Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah made a rare public appearance on Tuesday morning in southern Beirut during a ceremony to mark Ashura, according to official Hezbollah television station al-Manar.

Dozens of security guards accompanied Nasrallah during the ceremony which is the most important day in the Shi'ite calendar and commemorates the death of Imam Hussein, grandson of the Prophet Mohammad.

"On this day we warn against the Jews taking over east Jerusalem and the enemy [Israel] wanting to destroy the al-Asqa mosque," Nasrallah said according to the report.
