25 July 2014, 18:02 Nasrallah: The U.S. is covering up for this war and is supporting it through the media and political stances. The U.N. Security Council and the U.N. and Arab systems have also held the resistance responsible for what is happening and they acquitted the enemy.

25 July 2014, 17:48 Nasrallah: Despite everything that is happening, and despite conspiracies and challenges, the Palestinian cause remained assertive in the region and in the world thanks to the Palestinian people. The war today is a proof of this.
25 July 2014, 17:47 Nasrallah: People in the region have reached a state in which Palestine no longer means anything to them. This is perceived in Arab media.
