Hezbollah ready to resist any Israeli attack

By staff

Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said in a Feb. 16 televised speech that Lebanese resistance forces are well equipped and would not tolerate any Israeli aggression.

Speaking from at the Sayyed Shohadaa complex in Beirut’s southern suburbs, Nasrallah responded to Western claims about weapons transfers to Hezbollah, saying, “Everything we need is found in Lebanon; we don't need to transfer it neither from Syria, nor Iran.”

Looking back over recent decades, Nasrallah said, “30 years on, the Resistance project stands on a solid ground of equations, achievements and victories, not just dreams that ought to be true.”

Nasrallah refuted claims that Hezbollah was behind an attack that killed Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, saying about Israel’s prime minister, “Netanyahu immediately blamed Hezbollah of being behind the attack... But Israel doesn’t wage a war as a reaction.”

The U.S. has used the Bulgarian accusation to pressure European counties to classify Hezbollah as a ‘terrorist’ organization. Hezbollah, one of Lebanon’s largest political forces, is working with communists and members of all religious groups to build a front of resistance against imperialism and Zionism.
