25 July 2014, 18:31 Nasrallah: Hizbullah is following up carefully on all the political and field developments in the battle. We tell our brothers in Gaza we are with you and beside you and we will do anything that we perceive is a duty on all fronts.

25 July 2014, 18:07 Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah: Gaza, while burying its martyrs, has triumphed through the logic of the resistance and will triumph in the future.
25 July 2014, 18:06 Nasrallah: The objective of the war is not Hamas only but all the resistance and every tunnel, rocket, and weapon in Gaza.
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, 18:01 Nasrallah: Israelis took advantage of the three settler boys' case - which has not been uncovered yet - and they accused resistance movements of it and considered it an excuse to wage a war.

25 July 2014, 17:56 Nasrallah: And Iraq has entered a dark tunnel under the name of Islam and Islamic Caliphate and Christians are experiencing forced migration, Sunnis are clashing with ISIL and do not have an option other that being slaughtered or joining IS, and Shiite are only faced with killings. As Muslims today and an Islamic movement it is among our duties to announce out condemnation to what Christians and Muslims are experiencing in Iraq.
25 July 2014, 17:54 Nasrallah: Syria was and hopefully still is a solid wall in front of the Zionist project and has embraced the resistance and the Palestinian cause. We all know the size of the war imposed on it.
25 July 2014, 17:52 Nasrallah: What we are experiencing today as a nation and as an Ummah is the most dangerous situation ever since the occupation of Palestine and it is because of the systematic destruction of countries, armies, people and societies.
25 July 2014, 17:49 Nasrallah: Holding onto the Palestinian cause is one of the reasons for Syria's resilience and for the victory of the Islamic revolution in Iran.
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. And even in Lebanon, there is an effort exerted to choose a Palestinian suicide bomber, to differentiate between Palestinians and other nationalities.
25 July 2014, 17:45 Nasrallah: Isolating Palestinians psychologically, politically, and emotionally from the region's people is the most dangerous thing that has been committed is the past years. They pushed Palestinians into conflicts and confrontations or even enmities with neighboring countries.
25 July 2014, 17:44 Nasrallah: While Gaza is being slaughtered, other priorities prevail in other Arab countries such as the issues of gas and of paying salaries. These are rightful demands but they wanted them to be the crucial cause.
25 July 2014, 17:41 Nasrallah: It was not among the Zionists' considerations to return one meter of the Palestinian land to its owners, and therefore we consider that consensus over Jerusalem is absolute.
25 July 2014, 17:40 Nasrallah: Zionists have worked for long years and are still working on eliminating the Palestinian cause, on considering that the Palestinian people no longer exist and and that Jerusalem has become meaningless to Muslims and Christians.
25 July 2014, 17:38 Nasrallah: Quds Day is a motivation and a reminder of the central cause, so that the Jerusalem and Palestine remain in our hearts, minds, culture, work and in our priorities.
25 July 2014, 17:37 Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah speaking at the annual celebration of Quds Day in Dahieh: We salute the souls of the July 2006 war martyrs, and we salute the resistance's fighters, the wounded and our people who continue to be resilient to preserve the resistance because it is our only hope.
