Hezbollah chief makes rare public appearance for Gaza

July 25, 2014 9:55 P.M. (Updated: July 26, 2014 9:17 P.M.)
BEIRUT (AFP) -- Lebanese Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah made a rare public appearance on Friday to show solidarity with Gaza on the annual Iran-led Jerusalem Day commemoration, an AFP correspondent reported.

It was only the fifth public appearance by the head of the Shiite militant group since 2006, who Israel has threatened with assassination for nearly a decade.

Nasrallah appeared on stage from behind a curtain to wild applause from the thousands in the crowd at the indoor venue in a southern suburb of the Lebanese capital.

Jerusalem Day, celebrated every year on the last Friday in the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, was this year dedicated to "solidarity with the people and the resistance in Gaza."

As the Palestinian death toll in 18 days of the Israeli onslaught on Gaza topped 800, Nasrallah announced: "Palestine is still the main cause" in the Muslim world.
