After widespread rumors about the health of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, a journalist for the Lebanese terror group’s Al-Manar TV station tweets that Nasrallah will deliver a public address next Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. to mark 30 years since the network’s founding.

Nasrallah coughed and wheezed his way through a televised address last week in which he threatened “regional war” if Israel attacked holy sites in Jerusalem.

That started a swarm of speculation about his health, including that he had contracted COVID-19. Sources close to Nasrallah on Tuesday said the terror leader was suffering from pneumonia and seasonal allergies.
