Hizbullah: U.S. Demands To Disarm Us "Will Not Be Met With A Positive Response"
Hussein Al Khalil, the Assistant Secretary General of Hizbullah, said that the request the United States made to Lebanon and Syria that the party be disarmed “will not meet a favorable response.” In an interview with Al Hayat, he said: “I will not speak on behalf of Syria and the Lebanese government. But according to our reading of the Lebanese situation, I believe that this demand will not meet a favorable response.” “With regard to Hizbullah,” he added, “the U.S. and Israel carried out an aggression against Lebanon in July 1993 under that same pretext. But that aggression failed. And in April 1996, the enemy made another attempt at a larger scale, and mobilized all its supporters around the world, rallying them at the Sharm Al Sheikh summit. But in the end, Hizbullah and Lebanon came out stronger than before. Today, if the enemy repeats the same foolish action, then the party will adopt the same position, and God willing, we will have similar results.” Full Story
