Nasrallah: Israeli Occupation Entity Benefits from Events in Syria to Wage War on Gaza
BEIRUT, (SANA) – Hizbullah Secretary-General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah said that the Israeli occupation entity is benefiting from conflicts in the region and Syria to wage its aggression on Gaza, regretting remarks made by the political leaderships in some Arab countries that the war against Gaza aimed at diverting attention away from Syria.
Nasrallah remarks came during in his speech marking Ashura.
He wondered that "does it make sense that Binyamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak wage a war against Gaza to divert attention away from Syria since their objectives are clear?"
"Today’s aggression is happening in a different context from 2008. In 2008, the Resistance axis was more capable of extending support to Gaza and the resistance there and this was the case before 2008 and after 2008. One of the supply channels to Gaza has now been suspended and that is Syria. It can no longer provide logistical support, although it can still take a political stance in support of Resistance," he added.
Secretary General of Hizbullah said that "Israel is taking advantage of the events in Syria, the reversal of priorities and the transformation of enemies into friends and friends into enemies. It considers this as a good opportunity to restore its deterrence and to strike at missile capabilities in Gaza, which Israel is aware, will be hard to replace in light of the situation in Syria."
Nasrallah said that the Israeli aggression on Gaza is an episode of the episodes of the bloody, historic and decisive confrontations between the Resistance and the Zionist enemy and those behind it that will decide the destiny of Palestine, the region and the whole nation.
He said that the “main bet” is on the will of the people in Gaza and the will of the resistance there.
Hizbullah Secretary-General condemned the Israeli aggression, urged the Arab and Muslim governments, countries and people as well as all free people in the world to support Gaza and its people and resistance.
Nasrallah called upon the Arab and Islamic countries to supply Gaza with weapons and use oil to pressure the U.S. and Europe into ending their support for Israel.
