Report: Hizbullah Denies Remarks Attributed to Nasrallah
Hizbullah's media office slammed as “untrue” Farda News reports quoting the party's chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah as saying that “the guardianship of Wilayat al-Fakih is above the Constitution and the implementation of its orders are compulsory,” Assharq al-Awsat reported on Wednesday.
Hizbullah's media office denied the report published by Iranian Farda News Agency, which supports Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, stressing that they were “completely untrue.”
The agency apologized for the report and withdrew it blaming its correspondent for the “error.”
The report had said that Nasrallah's remarks came during his meeting with Iranian nationals residing in Lebanon.
Nasrallah has repeatedly said that Hizbullah is an extension of the Iranian project and that his party is willing to make sacrifices for the sake of the Wilayat al-Fakih.
He had also acknowledged that Hizbullah receives money from the Islamic Republic of Iran.
