Hezbollah terror group leader Hassan Nasrallah says Israel is shooting itself in the foot and authoring its own demise by pursuing a law that will impose a death penalty for certain terror offenses.

“Any time your enemy decides to pass a law to execute prisoners, it means he is a fool,” Nasrallah says in an address to his followers that mostly focuses on internal Lebanese politics.

He claims that the law will increase the motivation of Palestinians to carry out attacks.

“Everything happening indicates the end of this entity,” he says, attempting to dunk on civil strife enveloping Israel.

He also praises Lebanese citizens who he says have faced off against Israeli troops along the Blue Line, the unofficial border between the countries.
