TEHRAN, Dec 13_Hezbollah poses a considerable threat to the scenarios developed by the United States and the Israeli regime to be implemented in the Middle East, says the secretary general of Lebanon's resistance movement, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_The US is doing its utmost to depict Hezbollah as a threat to Lebanon. Americans are actually vying for their own interests and those of Israel. The interests of the Lebanese nation are not a matter of concern to them at all. The US is paying out millions of dollars as part of its attempts to sully the image of Hezbollah, yet such bids are all doomed to failure,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech broadcast live from the Lebanese capital city of Beirut as he addressed his supporters on Friday evening.
He added that Washington is lying and disseminating fake news about the recent wave of anti-government protests in Lebanon, noting that US statesmen are exercising such a practice as they are beset with their own problems and desperately trying to get to grips with them.
The leader of the Lebanese resistance movement further noted that the US is unable to sideline Hezbollah and push it away from Lebanon’s political arena, describing Washington’s approach vis-à-vis the Arab country’s domestic issues as “silly and improper.”
“Hezbollah represents a serious threat to Israel’s hegemony and conspiracies. Israel is well aware of the fact that if Hezbollah had wanted to run the (Lebanese) government, it would have taken effective actions against its building of a wall along its shared border with Lebanon and repeated violations of Lebanon's territorial waters,” Nasrallah said.
