Nasrallah: Iran-backed militias will 'prevent attacks' on al-Aqsa
Tensions around the Temple Mount have rose after National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir visited the site.

Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah warned that armed groups in Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, and the Palestinian territories would "prevent attacks" on al-Aqsa Mosque, during a speech on Tuesday afternoon.

Nasrallah referenced recent incidents of Qurans being burned in Sweden, complaining that the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation did not react strongly enough. The Hezbollah leader additionally repeated a claim that the person burning the Quran was "a Mossad spy."

"If the rulers of the countries of the Islamic world do not have the zeal and courage to defend their sanctities and their Quran, will they have the courage to defend us, you, our land, our country, Lebanon, and even Al-Aqsa Mosque?" questioned the Hezbollah leader, calling on Muslim youth to respond on their own initiative to the buring of the Quran.
