Beirut, SANA – Lebanese Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Monday called for coordination between the Syrian and Lebanese armies against terrorism.
In a speech on the occasion of the Martyred Leaders’ commemoration held in Beirut, Sayyed Nasrallah said the acts of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist organization serve the U.S. and Israeli plots in the region, adding that “to know the real purposes behind ISIS acts , we should search about US, British intelligence and Israeli Mossad’s acts.”
“We should not deceive ourselves by differentiating between ISIS and Jabhet al-Nusra as they are both of the same essence, roots and mentality”, Nasrallah stressed, adding that all of the world’s countries, except Israel, admit that ISIS poses a threat to the security of the region and the world alike.
” The game has ended in Syria and the insistence of some countries to ignite fighting in it is a mere obstinacy by some persons who want to carry out their schemes even if Syria has been destroyed and its people have been killed and injured,” Nasrallah said.
Hezbollah leader called on the countries supporting terrorism in Syria to reconsider the reality in it, asserting that the non-takfiri opposition must be allowed to seek a settlement as the Syrian government has repeatedly expressed readiness to it.
Nasrallah sent a clear message to the Saudis advising them to deeply think of the goals of the ISIS as its eyes are on Mecca and Medina, not on al-Quds, because ISIS’s so-called Islamic caliphate cannot function without the two Holy Mosques.
Noting to the ongoing cooperation between the terrorist groups and the Zionist entity, Nasrallah said “Only Israel does not consider Jabhat al-Nusra and the ISIS a threat because everything the terrorist group has done serves the Israeli interests.”
He strongly condemned the ISIS barbaric crime against 21 Egyptian workers in Libya, which can’t be tolerated by any religion and has nothing to do with religion, morality or humanity.
Nasrallah called upon the Lebanese powers to set up a national anti- terror strategy which has become a threat to Lebanon, through activating the security plots for confronting it and supporting the Lebanese army and security forces to control the security situation at the Bekaa and the north.
He called upon the governments and peoples of the region to counter the Takfiri mentality without waiting for any so-called U.S. solution.
“The US is depleting our resources through the ISIS and is destroying the region with the aim of dominating it to achieve the Israeli interests,” Nasrallah said, highlighting that governments and peoples of the region are capable of overcoming all terrorist organizations without any international strategies or intervention.
Hezbollah Secretary-General said that counter-terrorism is a defense for Islam, adding that acts of ISIS are the most ugliest distortion of the true Islamic image.
