Hezbollah leader Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has denied reports that he was poisoned, calling them 'psychological war' against the resistance.

In an interview with Al-Manar TV, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah said that the reports were broadcast by Iraqi Internet website Almalaf and "unfortunately some local and Arab media outlets contributed in circulating this baseless information."

"This information is totally unfounded," Nasrallah said." I am sitting here in front of you... There was no poisoning. It is pure fabrication."

Hezbollah Secretary General added that the report is "part of the psychological war" against Hezbollah.

He told Al-Manar that "if you make a research about internet sites that spread such baseless information you will find that they are all run by the same black room to serve US-Israeli interests."

On Wednesday the Iraqi Internet website Almalaf reported that Nasrallah had survived an assassination bid in which he was poisoned with a 'highly toxic chemical substance'. PressTV
