The leader of Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, confirmed on Saturday that an Israeli airstrike hit one of his group’s strategic strongholds in Syria on Thursday night.
“Israel is meddling in Syria every day under lots of excuses,” he 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,” Nasrallah said, in reference to a group of Shia/Shiite powers that includes Hezbollah, Hamas, Syria, Iran and Iraq.
Hezbollah’s Secretary-General also addressed the Syrian civil war, 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.”
Nasrallah also accused Arab countries of wasting billions of dollars on the war against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria and other powers of the so-called ‘Axis of Resistance’ that “could have saved Somalia and Yemen from hunger, built houses for the Palestinians in Gaza.”
