Hezbollah Rips Arab TV Stations – Vows to Keep Fighting for Assad (Video)
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah slammed Arab television stations Al-jazeera and Al-Aarabiya for broadcasting inaccurate information on the Syrian civil war. The terror leader vowed to continue to battle rebels in Syria.
Nasrallah said in a televised speech that recent steps taken by GCC targeting Hezbollah loyalists in the Gulf would not deter his group from its objectives in Syria.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Friday said his militia’s intervention in Syria was “late” and came in response to a “global project” led by the United States and Israel to control not only Syria but the Middle East as a whole.
Nasrallah dismissed accusations that his militia is leading a sectarian war in Syria. “The conflict in Syria is not between doctrines, not between Shiites and Sunnis; it is between two different projects.”
He attacked pan-Arab television stations Al Arabiya and Al Jazeera and accused them of broadcasting “not only inaccurate, but false” information on the conflict.
The Hezbollah chief said for the first time that his forces will remain involved in the conflict after helping the forces of President Bashar al-Assad control the town of Qusayr.
“We are going ahead with our project and we bear all the consequences of it,” Nasrallah said.
Thousands of Sunni protesters rallied for holy jihad against Assad yesterday.
