Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement, says a new ntifada (uprising) is the right choice for Palestinians to fight the Israeli regime’s occupation of their homeland.
He made the comments on Wednesday in a ceremony held in Beirut to observe Ashura, which marks the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein, the third Shia Imam.
The Hezbollah head praised “heroic Palestinian operations” against the regime in Tel Aviv, saying such an uprising will exhaust the Zionist enemy and will eventually make it end its occupation of Palestinian lands.
Throughout his speech, Nasrallah touched on the crises and terror threats plaguing several Muslim nations of the Middle East, including Yemen, Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon.
“Our enemies do their best to detect positions of weakness across our ranks; however, they will never manage to reach their goals,” the Hezbollah leader said. Al Saud against ‘independent Yemen’
The Hezbollah leader once again slammed the brutal Saudi war against Yemen, saying the kingdom is irked by the neighboring nation’s refusal to submit to its will.
The Saudi regime does not favor an “independent” and “courageous” Yemen, said Nasrallah.
Hundreds of thousands of Yemeni fighters are ready to make sacrifices in the battle against Saudi invaders, stressed the Hezbollah head.
During Ashura mourning ceremonies across Lebanon, thousands of Shia Muslims chanted slogans in solidarity with the oppressed people across the world, especially those in war-torn Yemen.
Nasrallah had earlier called on Shia mourners to support the cause of Yemen, which has been under deadly Saudi attacks for more than a year, during Muharram rituals.
