Nasrallah Lambasts U.S.-Led Strikes on Syria

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said Sunday that the Western strikes against Syria following alleged use of chemical weapons will likely complicate prospects of a political solution and have failed to achieve any of their results.

Speaking by video link to an electoral rally, Nasrallah said the U.S.-ordered strikes have strained international relations and could totally "torpedo" the U.N.-sponsored peace talks in Geneva. He said the strikes were "limited" and were recognition of the strength of the "resistance axis." The term is in reference to the alliance between Syria, Iran and Hizbullah.

The Iranian-backed Hizbullah, founded originally to fight Israel's occupation of Lebanese territories, has sent hundreds of fighters to back the troops of President Bashar Assad in the war, now in its eighth year.

U.S. President Donald Trump and his British and French allies say the airstrikes were necessary to deter Syria's use of chemical weapons. Syria and Russia deny any chemical weapons were used and insist the Western powers had no evidence.

I agree that the western strikes were a bit too soft. Israel always makes sure that some iranians or wannabee-iranians like Hezbollah perish during the attacks.
