Report: March 14 Completes Memo for Suleiman on Hizbullah's Fighting in Syria

The March 14 forces have completed a memorandum on their position on Hizbullah's fighting in Syria, reported the daily An Nahar Saturday.

It said that the memorandum will likely be submitted to President Michel Suleiman soon.

“The memo is currently being circulated among the March 14 lawmakers to garner their signatures ahead of presenting it to the president mid next week,” it revealed.

A large March 14 delegation will be tasked with handing the statement to Suleiman, added the daily.

An Nahar had reported on Friday that a number of March 14 leaders had met on Thursday night in order to review the memorandum, saying that it was backed by all members of the alliance.

Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah had declared during a speech on Friday that the party will stay involved in the conflict, after having helped Syrian regime forces recapture the key town of Qusayr from rebels.

"Where we need to be, we will be. Where we began to assume our responsibilities, we will continue to assume our responsibilities," he added.

"To defeat this very, very dangerous conspiracy (against Syria) we will bear any sacrifices and all the consequences,” he stated.

Hizbullah fighters spearheaded a devastating 17-day regime assault on the Syrian town of Qusayr near the Lebanese border which culminated on June 5 with its recapture from the rebels.

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 in the Damascus province.

But during a May 25 speech marking the 13th anniversary of Israel's military withdrawal from Lebanon, Nasrallah said "if Syria falls in the hands of the Takfiris and the United States, the resistance will become under a siege and Israel will enter Lebanon. If Syria falls, the Palestinian cause will be lost.”
