Nasrallah: Syria to Supply Hizbullah with Game-Changing Arms, We Will Back Resistance in Golan

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Syria is to supply Hizbullah with "game-changing weapons" despite Israel's air strikes reportedly aimed at cutting off the flow of arms, Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Thursday, vowing to back “the Syrian popular resistance” in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

"You Israelis say your objective is to stop the capability of the resistance from growing ... but Syria will provide (Hizbullah) with game-changing weapons it has not had before," Nasrallah said in a televised speech on the 25th anniversary of the establishment of Hizbullah's al-Nour radio station.

“We declare that we are ready to receive any game-changing weapons and we're competent to possess and protect such type of weapons and we will use them to defend our people,” he added.

Nasrallah said the shipments of new types of weapons would serve as the Syrian reaction to Israel's airstrikes. Syria has long been a conduit for Iranian weapons bound for Hizbullah.

Israeli officials say the Lebanese group has tens of thousands of rockets, but that most of them are unguided. Israeli officials said the shipments targeted twice last week included precision-guided missiles.

After the Israeli attacks, there had been speculation about whether Syria would retaliate, at the risk of drawing Israel into Syria's civil war.

"This is the Syrian strategic reaction," said Nasrallah of future weapons shipments.

"This is more important than firing a rocket or carrying out an airstrike in occupied Palestine," he said.

Israel never formally acknowledged the airstrikes, but Israeli officials have said Israel would keep striking any shipments of advanced weapons meant for Hizbullah.

“Everyone knows what Syria has offered to resistance movements, especially the Palestinian resistance. Israel knows that the source of strength of the resistance in Lebanon and Palestine is Syria, that's why it wants to remove it from the equation and to besiege the resistance in Lebanon and Palestine," said Nasrallah.

“The response was foiling the objectives of the aggression and this is what the Syrian leadership did, although friends and foes wanted Syria to respond and bomb the enemy,” added Nasrallah.

He noted that Syria's “highly-strategic response” against Israel involves the decision to “open the door to popular resistance in the Golan.”

“The same as Syria stood by Lebanon, we in the resistance declare that we will stand by the Syrian popular resistance that is aimed at liberating the Syrian Golan,” Nasrallah pledged.

“I'm not speaking out of enthusiasm or sentiments, but a calm evaluation says that the stances issued by the Syrian leadership prove its strength of nerve,” said Hizbullah's leader.

He pointed out that Syria has “a wise leadership that oversees the battle with the Israelis through a strategic mind, not through anger.”

Commenting on the joint Russian-U.S. effort to organize a conference to end Syria's two-year-old conflict, Nasrallah said "it is shameful that the U.S. is being depicted as Syria's savior through the proposed political solution.”

But he added that any time wasted means “further destruction and losses and this is all in the enemy's interest.”

Addressing the Palestinians, Nasrallah said: “You won't find anyone to stand by your side other than those who have stood by you since years.”

“The Palestinians benefit from any serious efforts to achieve a political settlement in Syria and prevent its fall into the hands of the Takfiris, the Americans and the Israelis,” he said.

Nasrallah stressed that “the only choice is resistance for those who want to preserve al-Aqsa Mosque and the Christian holy sites and for those who want to give back Jerusalem to the Palestinian people and to the Ummah.”

“The choice is neither the Arab League nor the U.N., the choice has always been the resistance,” he said.

Nasrallah lamented that “today, after this Arab Spring, the Arab regimes are more willing to offer compromises to the enemy.”

“The Palestinians were hoping that the Arab Spring would make Arabs less willing to offer compromises, but the scene of the Arab foreign ministers making a dangerous compromise, with the U.S. secretary of state sitting in the middle, indicates that the Palestinian cause is in danger,” Nasrallah added.

Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassem has said an Arab League delegation that met U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Washington last month recognized the possibility of a land swap.

His statement was welcomed by the United States, the main broker in talks between the Palestinians and Israel, and by Israel itself.

The Palestinians have played down a shift in the Arab League's stance, saying they had already agreed in past talks with Israel on minor land swaps in which Israel would retain some settlement blocs in the West Bank.

Turning to the Lebanese domestic affairs, Nasrallah stressed that Hizbullah wants the new cabinet to be formed and the parliamentary elections to happen on time.

He demanded that the Hizbullah-led March 8 camp be represented in cabinet according to its “parliamentary weight.”

“Amid these circumstances, a cabinet of national interest and true partnership must be formed and we must not waste time in this issue,” added Nasrallah.

Prime Minister-designate Tammam Salam is seeking to form what he called a “cabinet of national interest” that comprises no MP hopefuls.

Meanwhile, the March 14 alliance have been calling for a neutral cabinet, while the March 8 camp has demanded a “political government” and centrist Progressive Socialist Party chief MP Walid Jumblat has stressed that his bloc will not grant its vote of confidence to a “one-sided cabinet.”

Addressing the controversial issue of the electoral law, Nasrallah said: “We don't know if there is any alternative to the Orthodox Gathering proposal and we're under the pressure of time. We are not with political vacuum and all options other than vacuum can be discussed."

  • 09 May 2013, 19:11

    Nasrallah: The response was foiling the objectives of the aggression and this is what the Syrian leadership did, although friends and foes wanted Syria to respond and bomb the enemy.

  • 09 May 2013, 19:09

    Nasrallah: Israel bombed Syria in order to say that continuing to back the resistance and supply it with military aid will lead to the downfall of the regime. The objective is to harm the capabilities of Syria and its army and to remove it from the equation of the conflict with the enemy.

  • 09 May 2013, 19:07

    Nasrallah: Israel knows that the source of strength of the resistance in Lebanon and Palestine is Syria, that's why it wants to remove it from the equation and to besiege the resistance in Lebanon and Palestine.

  • 09 May 2013, 19:06

    Nasrallah: Israel has objectives behind the air strikes on Syria. Syria does not have a peace treaty with Israel, but there is a truce agreement and everyone knows what Syria has offered to resistance movements, especially the Palestinian resistance.

  • 09 May 2013, 19:04

  • 09 May 2013, 19:03

  • 09 May 2013, 19:00

    Nasrallah: Acknowledging the Jewish nature of the state of Israel poses cultural, humanitarian, economic, security and demographic threats.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:59

    Nasrallah: Arabs are unwilling to pay for bread for the Sunnis of Somalia or to aid the Syrian refugees in Lebanon or the Palestinians to stay in their land, but they are willing to pay money to the Jews.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:57

    Nasrallah: The U.S. is demanding an official acknowledgement of the Jewish nature of the state of Israel and this has dangerous repercussions.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:56

    Nasrallah: Their priority is somewhere else: How to drag Syria and Iraq into war; how to push Lebanon into the abyss.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:54

    Nasrallah: These Arab regimes are dealing with the Palestinians as if they are a burden, not a cause.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:53

    Nasrallah: Arabs are climbing the debris of Syria, which is facing a very severe war, and they are supposing that Iran is besieged, that's why they're giving the Americans what they want.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:52

    Nasrallah: The Palestinians were hoping that the Arab Spring would make Arabs less willing to offer compromises, but the scene of the Arab foreign ministers making a dangerous compromise, with the U.S. secretary of state sitting in the middle, indicates that the Palestinian cause is in danger.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:51

    Nasrallah: Today, after this Arab Spring, the Arab regimes are more willing to offer compromises to the enemy.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:51

    Nasrallah: When Israel imposes a war and the silenced parties become more silent, it is normal for the enemy to seize the chance.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:50

    Nasrallah: What's happening in the region is helping the enemy and unfortunately we're a nation that wastes a lot of chances.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:49

    Nasrallah: Today, the Palestinian cause is the land, the identity, the people, the Islamic and Christian holy sites and the detainees in Israeli prisons.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:46

    Nasrallah: The media outlets of the resistance have been committed to credibility and honesty, that's why they have made these accomplishments.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:43

    Nasrallah: The problem of a lot of people is the lack of credibility and the falsification in the issues of security, politics and economy, and never in the history of humanity has there been so much falsification like we've been witnessing in the past few years, due to the open means of communication, such as the Internet and other means.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:40

    Nasrallah: We're not obliged to report all the correct news, because that might serve the enemy, but we must not fabricate news.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:40

    Nasrallah: The role of media outlets is to inform people of the facts, not to distort the facts and fabricate news.

  • 09 May 2013, 18:37

    Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah in a televised address on the 25th anniversary of the establishment of al-Nour radio station: The role of al-Nour radio station was well-known during the periods of resistance, liberation and the July war and the employees must prepare for the post-July war period.

Nasrallah is a complete بهلول on this one. Most people living on the Golan are Druze and have NO desire to give up their Israeli citizenship. So, instead of claiming to liberate people whom are happy with their situation, they should focus on paying electricity bill as it seems money is in excess on their bank accounts. They should also help Iranian people that are starving.... And show solidarity with north Koreans that eat grass for lunch and dinner everyday. Allah yi se3don.... Day3een!

Not entirely...The druze there are neutral. Most of them are inclined to support Arab over Israeli. This attitude only budges when the druze within Israel are given the same respects as Jewish Israelis, which is still a concern for a country that wishes to hold a jewish-interest majority.

Wrong benzona. The syrian druze in the golan do not have israeli citizenship. They have a similar status (ID based, not citizenbased) as the Palestinians living in occupied jerusalem. The druze of golan have refused the israeli citizenship. The true Golan residents who are syrians, not euro jewish settler occupiers, have clashed with the israeli army on several occations and want the control of their areas to return to it's country syria.

when two people fight and 1 person has bruises and the second has broken bones and becomes handicapped, then it sounds weird when that second person is proud that he caused the first one some bruises.

PLUS
since 06, israel violated the lebanese air space multiple times, exactly like it was prior to 06.
if the change from 06 is about ground attacks, well i can then say the same thing. since 06, HA didn't throw a stone on israel? is HA afraid of Israel? (I am not asking for HA to do something, i am just discussing this argument)
