Nasrallah Blasts Israel for Air Strike against Hezbollah Position in Syria
nsnbc : Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary-General of Lebanon’s Shiite Hezbollah, confirmed Saturday that an Israeli air strike hit a strategic Hezbollah position in Syria Thursday night. He added that Israel is meddling in Syria on a daily basis using a cohort of excuses and pretexts.
Referring to an alliance of Shiite powers in Syria, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine, Nasrallah said “To all those who are fighting on the front in Syria for the enemy, I call on you and say that this plan has failed. Netanyahu crawled to Moscow to pleaded with Putin because he fears ISIS’s defeat, which is a failure for him and a victory for the Axis of Resistance.”
Ironically, Nasrallah forgot to mention the fact that it was the Palestinian, Muslim Brotherhood offshoot Hamas who first turned its back on the Syrian government in Damascus, partially fell out with the government of Iran, and introduced the war to Palestinian refugee camps in Syria in cooperation with al-Qaeda-linked groups.
That said, Nasrallah also addressed the war in Syria saying “After six years of war in Syria, the countries and international forces that devised the plot against Syria are faced with the bloody reality, which is a disappointment and a failure.”
He accused Arab countries of wasting billions of dollars on the war against the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria and other powers of what he describes as “the axis of resistance”. Nasrallah said the money could have saved Somalia and Yemen from hunger, built houses for the Palestinians in Gaza.”
