Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah hit back at Israeli threats on Monday, stressing that any assassination attempt on the Lebanese territory won’t go unanswered.
Addressing Israeli threats to target Palestinian resistance figures, Sayyed Nasrallah affirmed that Hezbollah won’t allow the Zionist enemy to change the rules of engagement.
The Lebanese resistance leader made the remarks in a televised speech via Al-Manar on the sixth anniversary of Lebanon’s Second Liberation.
His eminence pointed to the leading role played by the United States in the universal war waged against Syria since 2011.
Sayyed Nasrallah warned that Syria, along with its allies, is ready to confront Washington if it puts boots on the ground in the area east of the Euphrates River.
The Hezbollah SG, meanwhile, voiced firm rejection to the United Nations Security Council’s draft resolution on renewing UNIFIL force mandate in Lebanon, noting that the draft is aimed at turning the international peacekeepers into Israeli spies.
Second Liberation Sayyed Nasrallah started his speech by congratulating the Lebanese on the sixth anniversary of Lebanon’s Second Liberation, when the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah liberated the country’s Eastern Mountain Range from Takfiri terrorists.
“Before the Second Liberation Takfiri terrorists occupied wide areas of Lebanon's Eastern Mountain Range and used this region as a hotbed to launch terrorist attacks on Lebanon,” his eminence said.
“Lebanon was part of the map which ISIL planned to occupy, Sayyed Nasrallah said, as he pointed to the stance of some Lebanese parties who opposed fighting terrorists.
Sayyed Nasrallah recalled some events during the battles which took place against the Takfiri terrorists between 2012 and 2017.
“The US, along with some local powers, hindered the Lebanese Army’s battle against Takfiris.
At time, Washington threatened the Lebanese Government of suspending the aid to the Lebanese Army in case of a battle against the Takfiris.” Thanks to the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah, as well as to help from Syrian Army in the Syrian territories, the Lebanese territories were liberated from the terrorists in August 27 2017, the Hezbollah SG said.
“The Second Liberation is yet another successful manifestation of the Golden Trilogy: Army-People-Resistance.” This item is being updated-
