REPORT: Hezbollah SG Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah: We will be where we are needed
Lebanon News
Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah saluted on Friday all those who were wounded in battle, their families, medical staff and others on the occasion of the 'Wounded Resistance Fighters Day', adding that Hezbollah is the resistance movement that brought down brutal foreign rule, not to be forgotten.         

“The new generation must know of our past achievements; that era that separates the resistance fighters from the agents,” he said, stressing that Hezbollah is an integral part of the Lebanese community, since it has presented martyrs for the integrity of the country.              

“We do not hold a dual citizenship, only the Lebanese. We were born here, we live here and we will die in Lebanon, no one can take that away from us,”
Nasrallah said.                   

He pointed out that the greatest army in the Middle East, the Israeli army, "fell before the feet of Hezbollah fighters," condemning the United States blatant interference in Lebanon's internal affairs and in the region.                                          

The Hezbollah chief called on all the people living on the Lebanese territories, whether they be Lebanese, Palestinian or Syrian, to practice utmost restraint throughout these strenuous times, denouncing all forms of celebratory gunfire, "more-so if it is coming from the arms of the Resistance."                                

Commenting on the rockets falling on Baalbeck, Nasrallah said that there is some sort of a foreign intelligence plan aiming at inciting a Sunni-Shiite strife in the region, pointing out that "the rockets that hit the Sareen, Baalbeck, Hermel areas did not come from the Lebanese border town of Arsal but from rebel groups across the border."          

On another note, Sayyed Nasrallah condemned the incident that occurred before the Iranian embassy in Beirut stressing that it was an accidental.

"The man who was killed during the clashes was innocent."                   

Regarding Hezbollah’s intervention in Syria, Nasrallah said Hezbollah decided to interfere in the Syrian crisis and participate in the battles on the ground in order to stand against a project targeting Lebanon and the region, stressing that “Hezbollah is among the last to enter the Syrian war, preceded by the Future bloc and other parties”.                

“Had our interference in the Syrian battles been alongside the opposition, would it have been deemed blessed?” he asked.                      

“We never hid and said we were delivering milk and blankets in Syria, we declared that we were fighting,” he continued, adding that the Syrian army fights on its land, while the resistance has only taken part of the responsibility "to face this US-Israeli-Takfiri project."                     

However, Nasrallah denied that Hezbollah had any conscripts in the Gulf, noting that the anger emanating from the Gulf States is a result of the defeat they feel on a project they had hoped would come out triumphant.                

“I was not aware that the Gulf Cooperation Council had any blacklist but we are honored to be on the US terror list,” Nasrallah stated.

He stressed that those who think that placing Hezbollah on terror lists and exerting pressure will change the party’s stance is delusional, noting that resorting to sectarian rhetoric is a sign of weakness.                

“Our stance post the al-Qussayr battles is the same as it was before and we will be where we are needed,” he concluded.
