BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:17 P.M.) – Secretary General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, hit out at Israeli airstrikes in Syria during an address from Beirut on Saturday.
Four Israeli jets breached Syrian airspace to bomb alleged military sites near the ancient city of Palmyra in the early hours of Friday, leading Syria to activate its air defence system.
According to the Syrian army, two Israeli jets were struck, with one shot down over the Israeli occupied section of the Golan Heights.
Hassan Nasrallah said: “Today, this prepared and occupational project has failed, and Syria has won; yet still waiting for the great victory.”
He then explained how groups once previously supported by foreign countries are now no longer backing them.
“ISIS is on its way to demise, as will as al-Nusra and all terrorist Takfiri factions, it is only a matter of time, even the whole countries who previously supported, financed and were allied to them, now are abandoning them and even fighting them! Because the magic has now turned on the magician.”
He then attacked Israel’s falsities as supposed reasons for its airstrikes in Syria.
“And of course, Israel comes up every now and then with fake excuses to interfere with Syrian issues, sometimes for hitting Hezbollah weapons – like what they claimed last week – or sometimes with another excuse like a shell explosion in al-Julan or something like that, thus they start interfering and bombing several sites of the Syrian army in Syrian territories, providing by that the required support for ISIS or any terrorist factions.”
