Nasrallah: Hezbollah is stronger than ever

BEIRUT | / NNA - January 16, 2015, 08h46
Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah confirmed Thursday that his party's military wing was as ready as ever to fight Israel, saying that the battles waged by Hezbollah in Syria and its mobilization in Lebanon did not wear out its military capacities, and that its military power was stronger than ever.
In his interview on Thursday evening with Al-Mayadeen TV channel, Nasrallah described the Israeli air raids on several targets in Syria in recent years as "an attack against the entire axis of resistance," noting that his group's fighters stand ready to invade the northern Israeli region of Galilee in any future confrontation as "they have the full right to retaliate."

Nasrallah noted that "no one has committed that the attacks against Syria will remain without a response. This is the right of the entire axis of resistance; it is not Syria's right exclusively."

He also assured that "the Israelis are currently incapable of achieving a decisive and clear victory in any possible war on Lebanon."

Hezbollah's Secretary General accused a powerful regional state of backing the extremist Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq and hailed the most-recent dialogue between his party and the Future Movement for creating an atmosphere of self-control in the country.

"The dialogue has so far curbed sectarian strife. Its results appeared following the suicide bombing that rocked Tripoli's Jabal Mohsen over the weekend," he argued.
"If it weren't for this dialogue, the reaction would have been different," said Nasrallah.

During the interview, the party's secretary-general reiterated his support for his ally, Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun, saying he should be Lebanon's next president.

He later tackled the issue of the party's official busted five months ago and who turned out to be working with the Israeli and U.S. intelligences.

"He was responsible for a department inside one of the security units in Hezbollah (...) however, he was not of a high rank in the party's security apparatus," Nasrallah told his audience.

"His importance and status were highly exaggerated by media. He confessed to everything and admitted the extent of his collaboration with Israel," Nasrallah explained, noting that the former official's family was responsible for informing the party about their son's collaboration.

Hassan Nasrallah's comments came as many opponents criticize Hezollah's presence in Syria; they also assume that its military power was weakened by its losses in the violent fighting against the Syrian rebellion as well as islamist groups.
