Nasrallah Picture Burned in Demo outside Lebanese Embassy in Kuwait

Dozens of demonstrators on Tuesday held a sit-in in front of the Lebanese embassy in Kuwait to protest Hizbullah's interference in the Syrian crisis.

"The protesters burned a picture of Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah,” Naharnet correspondent in Kuwait reported, adding that they demanded placing the party on the list of terrorist organizations.

He noted: “They referred to Hizbullah as the party of the devil.”

“The protesters also held banners calling for the expulsion of the Lebanese ambassador in the country.”

Pictures of the sit-in published on social media websites revealed that the demonstrators are Islamists.

On Sunday, tens of the supporters of the Muslim Revolutionaries movement in Egypt staged a sit-in in front of the Lebanese embassy in Cairo to protest Hizbullah's involvement in the Syrian war.

Meanwhile in Doha, demonstrators rejecting Hizbullah fighting alongside Syria President Bashar Assad's forces in the neighboring country also held a protest on Sunday in front of the Lebanese embassy in Qatar's capital.

Hizbullah fighters spearheaded a devastating 17-day assault on the Syrian town of Qusayr near the Lebanese border which culminated on Wednesday with its recapture from the rebels.

The party's chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah had previously justified the group's involvement in Syria by saying they were defending Lebanese-inhabited border villages inside Syria and Shiite holy sites.

But during a May 25 speech marking the 13th anniversary of Israel's military withdrawal from Lebanon, Nasrallah said the Takfiris are the “most prevailing group in the Syrian opposition,” warning against a defeat against them in the ongoing war in Syria.
