The Secretary General of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has affirmed that the resistance is the enemy of the United States and its hegemonic policies and the Zionist regime and its projects.
“The resistance is proud of this enmity,” Nasrallah said Sunday at a memorial ceremony for martyr Abbas al-Yatama, a commander of the resistance, adding that all the actions of the US embassy in Lebanon have failed.
He said that this U.S. embassy interferes in all affairs and tries to make the lives of the Lebanese more difficult. In recent years, the U.S. and Saudi Arabian embassies have worked to trigger a civil war in Lebanon, Nasrallah said.
He pointed out that the true nationalist groups are those forces that truly seek Lebanese sovereignty and want oil, gas and water and all Lebanese resources for Lebanon itself.
He added, “The U.S. and other Western countries spent tens of billions of dollars to tarnish the image of the resistance, but they failed. The internaitonal war against Syria started and they sent terrorists to Lebanon, but they still failed.”
Hezbollah’s secretary general went on to say that the second ship carrying fuel from Iran will be on its way to Lebanon in the next few days. “More ships will follow,” he said.
“This is not about one or two ships. This is a process, and we will continue this process as long as fuel is needed in Lebanon. Our goal is to help the Lebanese people and reduce their problems. We are not replacing the Lebanese government or companies that import oil derivatives or are fuel distribution centers. We import acceptable amounts of fuel to reduce the pressure on companies, gas stations and the pressure created by the black market. We want to drop the prices that show the greed of sellers, and we want to alleviate the problems of the people,” Nasrallah said.
Hezbollah’s secretary general stressed, “There are many countries that can help us, but the United States is preventing them from doing so, using its veto power. If the U.S. government wants to help the Lebanese people, it must lift its veto on helping Lebanon.”
