Powerful militant group Hezbollah on Monday said Lebanon would continue to stand by Syria and Iran against „international conspiracies“ and „threats“, as global pressure mounts on the two countries.
„The current events in Syria are clearly an international conspiracy against Syria’s support for Arab and Islamic resistance movements in the region,“ the Iran – and Syria – backed group said in a joint statement with its Shia ally, the Amal Movement. „Lebanon will never be a conduit for a conspiracy against a sister state.“ (…)
Hezbollah and Amal also reiterated their support for Iran, as pressure mounts on the Islamic state over its nuclear program.
„We firmly support the Islamic Republic of Iran against all American and Israeli threats,“ the statement said.
