Days after cancelling a speech which led to speculations about his health, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Tuesday appeared to supporters via video.

Speaking at a ceremony to mark the third anniversary of the killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and quoted by Haaretz, Nasrallah denounced National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir's visit to the Temple Mount and said will "lead to an explosion in the entire region."

"We are not afraid of a Netanyahu government – we understand it," he added, saying that what is novel about this particular Israeli government is that it is one of "corrupt people and insane extremists."

"This is a sign that this is a government that will bring an end to the Zionist entity." This government "will take crazy steps, which will bring destruction upon [Israel]," declared Nasrallah.

On Ben Gvir's visit to the Temple Mount, Nasrallah said that "attacking holy sites in Jerusalem is liable to cause a regional escalation."

He continued, "I say to supporters and enablers of Israel: If you do not want another regional war in addition to the war in Ukraine and Russia, then stop Israel from taking stupid steps."

"What happened today at the al-Aqsa compound and the stance regarding the Palestinians of many Arab countries guarantee that they are turning toward a dangerous direction. If the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy sites are harmed, it will not destroy the situation within Palestine alone, but in the entire region,” said Nasrallah, according to Haaretz.

"We are telling every country in the world: If you do not want a war in the region, you must curb these insane extremists," he continued.

Nasrallah also commented on his health, rejecting the rumors and saying that "there is no need to panic".

The Hezbollah leader’s speech was originally scheduled for Friday but the group abruptly cancelled the speech, claiming Nasrallah has a flu infection and was “receiving the appropriate treatment”.

Subsequent reports from Lebanon and Saudi Arabia claimed that Nasrallah in fact suffered a stroke last week and has been incapacitated.

Last year, Nasrallah gave a speech in which he was seen coughing and appearing to have trouble speaking.

The speech resulted in rumors swirling about the condition of the Hezbollah leader, including rumors that he had contracted COVID-19 and even gone into a coma.

Hezbollah denied those rumors, and Nasrallah later gave another speech in which he dispelled the rumors about his health.
