Daamoush Says U.S. Harming Region Stability, Not Iran and Hizbullah
A senior Hizbullah official stressed Sunday that it is Washington that is “undermining stability in the region and the world,” not Iran and his group, in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's latest remarks.
“Iran and Hizbullah are not the ones undermining stability in the region and the world but rather America, which wants to impose fragmentation, hegemony and normalization with the Zionist enemy on countries and peoples through intimidation, sanctions, pressures and force,” Sheikh Ali Daamoush, the deputy head of Hizbullah's Executive Council, said.
“Iran, Hizbullah, Syria and all the countries of the axis of resistance have experienced throughout the past decades all forms of siege, sanctions, wars and seditions, and the U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia and over 80 nations have waged a war against Syria that has been running for more than six years,” Daamoush noted.
But “Iran and the Resistance have emerged stronger and more immune, and today Syria and the entire axis of resistance are winning in this confrontation and everyone acknowledges this,” the Hizbullah official added.
“What can they do through their new strategy? Can they do more than what they did and failed in in the past?” Daamoush asked rhetorically.
Telling Lebanese that they “have the ability to foil incitement, threats and U.S.-Israeli sanctions” through “enhancing national unity,” the Hizbullah official urged them “not to heed foreign diktats and to reject the incitement that Saudi Arabia is practicing.”
In a speech in which he withdrew presidential support for the nuclear deal with Iran on Friday, Trump denounced the Iranian government as a "fanatical regime" that backs a wide array of militant groups in the Middle East.
He described Tehran as "the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism," saying it backs al-Qaida, the Taliban, Hizbullah, Hamas and "other terrorist networks."
Trump also slammed what he called Iran's "continuing aggression in the Middle East and all around the world."
