Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah claimed that the U.S. and Israel are deploying suicide bombers in Lebanon, Israel’s Walla reported on Monday.

“The Israelis and Americans are using extremists as suicide bombers inside of Lebanon,” he said, in a speech honoring deceased terror operatives.

Nasrallah dismissed claims that recent suicide attacks against Hezbollah targets were a response to his group’s meddling in Syria’s civil war. “Such actions were already occurring prior [to the civil war],” he claimed.

The arch-terrorist also pledged continued support for the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in its bloody battle against various rebel elements. “We will remain in Syria,” he said.
