Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Friday weighed in on the tensions between Israel and the Islamic Jihad, i24NEWS reported.

Nasrallah claimed that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's "calculations were a failure because the decision was to isolate Islamic Jihad, neutralize the rest of the factions, and cause sedition within the resistance."

"Benjamin Netanyahu aims to escape internal division and the disintegration of his government coalition with this operation in Gaza," the Hezbollah leader claimed.

Nasrallah stressed in his speech that the leaders of Islamic Jihad have communicated with the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades in order to "unify" their position and have a "joint reaction for the resistance in Gaza."

"Despite all the assassinations of its leaders, the resistance movements have not weakened and neither have their capabilities," he stated.

Nasrallah added that the leaders of the Islamic Jihad behaved "wisely and calmly after the assassination of the leaders," offering his "condolences."

He also sent "his congratulations to the Palestinian people and mujahideen" and in particular "to my brothers of the Islamic Jihad movement, who were martyred in these days with their families".

The Hezbollah leader is no stranger to threatening Israel, and has used current internal tensions within Israel to claim that the country's end is approaching.

In March, Nasrallah claimed that the controversy in Israel over the government's planned judicial reforms showed that the Jewish State is approaching the end of its existence.
