Syria Never Changed its Resistant Stances Despite Global War It Has Been Facing: Nasrallah

BEIRUT, (ST)- Hizbollah Secretary General Hasan Nasrallah has stressed that Syria has kept steadfast and hasn't changed its resistant stances and support for the Palestinian cause despite the global war it has been facing.

Nasrallah, in a televised speech marking Hezbollah Martyr’s Day on Saturday, said that resistance has achieved great victory made by the blood of its martyrs. He saluted the families of the martyrs, saying that “thanks to martyrs’ sacrifices, the resistance has achieved all its victories.”

He added that the resistance's missile capability is a deterrent force against the Israeli enemy aiming to put an end to its threats.

 Resistance will respond to any Israeli attack on Lebanon

 "We will continue  to hold on to our weapon and the army-people-resistance equation. We will also respond to any Israeli attack on Lebanon and will not accept any aggression by the enemy on our land,” Nasrallah said.

On normalization between the Israeli entity and the Gulf states, Nasrallah said "we condemn all kinds of normalization with the Israeli enemy and call on honest people of the world to condemn it".  He pointed out that what was taking place secretly is now happening publicly, clarifying that current normalization bids puts an end to the Arab hypocrisy and drops the masks of cheaters and hypocrites who, over decades, cheated the Palestinian people by telling them that they support their resistance."

He went on to say that "real hope lies in resistant peoples and the countries which back these peoples," pointing out that the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, through their resistance, sacrifices and marches of return, constitute the hope for not surrendering."

Nasrallah saluted the people of the occupied Syrian Golan and hailed their honorable stance against normalization, surrender and Israel's judaization practices. He praised their adherence to national belongingness which foiled the so-called "Local Councils elections"  which the Israeli occupation tried to impose on them.            


On Yemen, Nasrallah hailed the steadfastness of the Yemeni people in the confrontation of the Saudi-Emirati and American coalition's aggression, pointing out that international calls for stopping the aggression may be a bid to save the coalition's countries form the quagmire they put themselves in. He urged the Yemeni people to remain patient and cling to their positions, because today, they are closer to victory more than ever before.

 Nasrallah went on saying that the world expressed anger over the killing of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, but it turned a blind eye to the daily Saudi crimes in Yemen.

Concerning the formation of a Lebanese government, Nasrallah urged all the Lebanese to adhere to national unity and not to put obstacles in the face of this process.
