Nasrallah will not release a scrap of information on abducted Israeli soldiers “for nothing”
In a recorded speech aired by the Arabic al Jazeera TV network Monday night, the Hizballah leader said only he was competent to give out information on the Israeli soldiers, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev [kidnapped a year ago on the Israeli side of the Lebanese border.] But he said he would reveal nothing about their condition without something in return.
Nasrallah confirmed reports that he takes the precaution of not appearing in public.
As debkafile reported exclusively, Hassan Nasrallah recorded his speech Saturday, July 21, in Tehran. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad convened a two-day council of war with leaders of Hizballah, Hamas and other Palestinian radical groups, as the second round of the talks he and Iranian military chiefs held in Damascus Friday with Syrian president Bashar Assad and heads of his armed forces.
We have also learned that Al Jazeera paid a high fee for exclusive use of the Nasrallah tape, keen to preserve its lead as the preferred platform for top-line radical Muslims, such as al Qaeda big shots.
