Hezbollah Leader: Resistance Movement to Repel Threats Powerfully

Secretary-General of the Lebanese Hezbollah Movement Seyed Hassan Nasrallah underlined that the Lebanese Islamic resistance movement is prepared to confront enemy threats regardless of conflicts and challenges existing in the region.

Speaking at a meeting with visiting Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian, Nasrallah stressed the necessity to keep vigilant against the plots hatched by the US and the Zionist regime, and stated, “The Resistance will resist against threats powerfully and will create new equations regardless of the surrounding challenges and tensions.”

He lauded Iran’s key role in resolving the regional problems, and stated, “Foreign plots against Syria have reached a stalemate and the Islamic Republic of Iran is supporting the righteous demands of the Syrian people and emphasizing political solutions to the Syrian crisis in accordance with its stable stances in defending and supporting the rights of the regional nations.”

Abdollahian, for his part, said that foreign plots against the axis of resistance have failed to produce any fruit, thanks to the vigilance and solidarity of the Syrian government and nation.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

In October, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of stirring unrests in Syria once again.

The US and its western and regional allies have long sought to topple Bashar al-Assad and his ruling system. Media reports said that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.
