Israel-Hamas war: Hezbollah's Nasrallah plead for ceasefire in last speech
Hezbollah confirms commitment to ceasefire, surprising Israel; Prof. Amatzia Baram claims Nasrallah's goal was always a ceasefire
By SHAKED SADEH/MAARIV

A Hezbollah official informed Al Jazeera last week that Hezbollah would adhere to the declared ceasefire if Israel does the same. Any escalation by Israel in southern Lebanon or Gaza during the ceasefire will be met with a response from Hezbollah.

This declaration surprised many in Israel, but Prof. Amatzia Baram, a senior researcher on Middle East affairs, had previously claimed that this was Nasrallah's intention from the beginning of the ongoing war.

In his last speech, Nasrallah's plea for a ceasefire went unnoticed by many. He emphasized three times that a ceasefire in Gaza was demanded because he recognized that by doing so, he would not have to respond with attacks in the north to show solidarity with the Palestinians. It is important to understand that Hezbollah, similar to the IDF, took Israel by surprise on October 7.
