Hizbullah Hails 'Historic Symbol' Castro
Hizbullah has hailed late Cuban leader Fidel Castro, whose death was announced on Saturday, as a “historic symbol.”
Ammar al-Moussawi, who is in charge of international relations for Hizbullah, lauded Castro as "a historic symbol whose life was a lighthouse to all revolutionaries around the world."
Castro, a titan of the 20th century who beat the odds to endure into the 21st, died after surviving 11 U.S. administrations and hundreds of assassination attempts.
No cause of death was given.
Hassan Rouhani, the president of Hizbullah's regional backer Iran, has hailed Castro as a "relentless warrior."
