Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah wrapped up the campaign to plant one million trees in Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh), organized by the Jihad Al-Binaa organization.
Sayyed Nasrallah planted the one millionth tree near his residence in the Haret Hreik district in the presence of Agriculture Minister Dr. Hussein Hajj Hassan and MP Ali Ammar along with a number of Hezbollah officials.
“Praise be to Allah. In the presence of the brothers today, Almighty Allah has granted us success in planting the one millionth tree in the framework of the campain to build one million trees that has been organized by the Jihad Al-Binaa organization in the past few months. We wanted to plant this tree in this particular place, near our residence in Haret Heriek, which was destroyed during the 2006 war, to address every citizen and say: If every Lebanese plants a tree next to his house and pledged to take care and preserve it, imagine how our country would look like. Of course this is an urgent need at every level. In the framework of this move, we wrap up the campaign and we hope that God willing, we will meet at the festival that will be organized by Jihad Al-Binaa to elaborate on this matter,” his eminence said.
On Saturday, Sayyed Nasrallah will deliver a speech in the occasion at (1230 GMT), and he’s also expected to tackle the latest developments in Lebanon.
