Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah appeared on a billboard in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv advertising the importance of recycling – but in a rather ironic fashion.

The Lebanese militia and political leader dominated the huge billboard overlooking Tel Aviv's Ayalon Highway on February 7th, encouraging Israelis to recycle plastic bottles.

Nasrallah's forefinger points at a sentence in Hebrew which says, “I don't recycle bottles," while underneath is another notice, "Nasrallah has been stuck in a bunker for 12 years. What is your excuse?"  

The Israeli recycling company was not immediately available for comment on the Ad.
