BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered a televised speech, Wednesday, on the tenth night of Muharram.
In his televised speech, Sayyed Nasrallah touched on a number of topics, including Hezbollah’s presence and future in Syria.
“We will stay there (Syria) even after the settlement in Idlib. Our presence there is linked to the need and the consent of the Syrian leadership,” he said to the large crowd on the eve of Ashura.
The Hezbollah leader then turned his attention to the Syrian Kurds, who he encouraged to abandon the U.S. and negotiate with the Syrian government.
“Your best interest is to negotiate with the Syrian leadership. Washington could abandon you at any price,” he said.
Sayyed Nasrallah would conclude his speech by touching on the latest Israeli strikes on several Syrian cities earlier this week.
“The Israeli attacks on Syria are part of the Israeli-US-Saudi fiasco,” he maintained, underlining Israel’s keenness that Syria doesn’t acquire rocket capabilities that guarantee a balance of terror.
“The Israeli attacks on Syria had become unbearable and must be stopped,” he added.
