Nasrallah speech

The secretary-general of Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement has warned Israel about any act of aggression against the resistance front. Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah says any miscalculation by the regime could lead to a major war in the region. Nasrallah also touched on the threats made by Israeli officials against Lebanon. He said it is the Tel Aviv regime that must fear the big war with the resistance. The Hezbollah leader said the resistance front has hundreds of thousands of fighters ready for such a battle. Nasrallah was speaking in a speech that marked the anniversary of Israel’s forced withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000. The occasion is known as the Resistance and Liberation Day. He said the resistance front’s deterrent capabilities have been growing since 2000, while Israel has seen its deterrent power diminish. Nasrallah said the recent Palestinian retaliatory operation in response to Israel's attack on the Gaza Strip proved that the resistance front has significantly enhanced its deterrent power. The Hezbollah leader added that now Israel has to pay a price for every attack against Palestinians.

Boycotting Israeli products

A major European trade union organization has announced its decision to boycott products made in Israeli settlements. According to Palestinian media, the decision came during the European Trade Union Confederation’s congress in the German capital, Berlin. The confederation called for regulatory measures to prevent the European Union’s legal entities from importing or exporting products manufactured in Israeli settlements. The body cited the illegality of Israel's West Bank settlements under international law. It also supported the right of the Palestinian people to have an independent state, with the occupied East al-Quds as its capital. The confederation represents over 45 million European workers and their trade unions. The UN Security Council has condemned Israel's settlement projects in several resolutions.

Sudan ceasefire deal

Sudan’s warring sides have accused each other of violating the latest ceasefire deal, which was mediated by the US and Saudi Arabia. The seven-day truce between the Sudanese army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces entered its third day on Thursday. The ceasefire came into effect Monday night and was immediately violated as airstrikes and artillery fire shook the capital city of Khartoum. There have been further breaches of the ceasefire agreement since then. The paramilitary RSF issued a statement late Wednesday, placing the blame for ceasefire breaches on Sudan’s army. The army responded Thursday morning, saying it had countered an attack on armored vehicles by the RSF in a clear violation of the truce. The violence, which started in mid-April, has so far killed around 1,000 people and displaced over a million others. The two warring factions were former allies and had jointly seized power in a 2021 coup.
