Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed on Wednesday that the recent Saudi offer to reach a ceasefire agreement with Yemen’s Ansarullah is a mere deception, emphasizing that the Yemeni command and Sayyed Abdul-Malik Badreddin Al- Houthi may never accept it.
“I advise the Saudi royals to avoid wasting time, stop the war, lift the blockade and allow the Yemen parties to negotiate,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
Addressing the the Association of Muslim Scholars’ celebration honoring the late cleric Sheikh Ahmad Al-Zein, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that the Saudis want to obtain through deception what they failed to gain in the battlefield.
Saudi wants to reach a ceasefire and keep all the other forms of the war on Yemen, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that the Saudi blockade on Sanaa airport as well as the seaports and borders prevents the inflow of the medical and food stuffs, and thus force the Yemenis to accept solutions on the basis of such pressures.
Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that the humanitarian and the military solutions must be achieved simultaneously, adding that holding talks during the blockade is completely rejected.
Hezbollah Secretary General highlighted the vicious propaganda which claims that Saudi wants to halt the war on Yemen and that Ansarullah movement rejects the ceasefire offer because it wants to link the Yemeni file to the Iranian nuclear issue.
Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that the Yemeni forces have developed their military capabilities and engaged in major attacks waged in the contect of defending Yemen in face of the ongoing Saudi aggression.
‘Deal of the Century’
Hezbollah leader indicated that the Palestinian steadfastness inspires hope, adding that it has frustrated the US scheme of the ‘Deal of the Century’.
Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the deal, which was established by the Trump-Netanyahu-MbS tripartite, is no longer mentioned in the political discourse.
According to Sayyed Nasrallah, Biden’s administration can never view the Palestinian cause from Trump’s perspective, noting that it just needed steadfastness and time to foil the US scheme.
Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted Netanyahu’s political crisis, considering that the results of the Israeli elections indicate an unprecedented leadership deadlock in the entity.
Axis of Resistance
Hezbollah Secretary General stressed that the Israeli threats as well as military maneuvers reflect the enemy’s worries, adding that those concerns are justifiable because the axis of resistance is dramatically developing its capabilities.
“The Israelis threaten to wage wars; however, they are afraid of them.”
Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the axis of resistance surpassed the hardest period in its history in reference to the latest decade, adding that the resistance alliance will be identify the future of the region.
Hezbollah Chief underscored that priorities of the United States are no longer concentrated on the Middle East (except ‘Israel’), adding that the domestic issues (pandemic, economic crisis, racism, hassles, etc.), the military peril emanating from Russia as well as the economic threat posed by China top the concerns of the policy makers in Washington.
Sayyed Nasrallah called on the governments and the political forces in Lebanon and the entire region to avoid basing their plans and betting on the US policies, calling for contemplating the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s expression abut USA decline.
“Holding national and regional dialogues can solve our problems.”
“USA resorts to diplomacy in dealing with Iran because it knows the real power of the Islamic Republic,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding that Iran would not now make the concessions it did not make in face of Trump’s sanctions and war rhetoric.
Sayyed Nasrallah stressed, in reference to Iran-China deal, that Tehran is on the threshold of surpassing the blockade and sanctions era.
Cabinet Formation in Lebanon
Hezbollah leader cited a number of complications hindering the cabinet formation in Lebanon, adding, however, that the Resistance Party would not give up on this file.
Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted collective efforts being exerted these days to overcome the hindrances blocking the creation of the new government badly needed by all the Lebanese, stressing that Lebanon has been exhausted by this deadlock.
Sheikh Ahmad Al-Zein
Sayyed Nasrallah expressed condolences to the the late Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Association of Muslim Scholars Judge Sheikh Ahmad Al-Zein’s family members, companions and students, stressing that his eminence was a sample case of the constant steadfastness in face of the various circumstances.
The Resistance Leader stressed that Sheikh Al-Zein confronted the US -Israeli plots, supported the Palestinian cause and based his alliances on the stance towards Palestine, underling his bravery, straightforwardness and honesty in this regard.
Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Sheikh Al-Zein collaborated with Sayyed Moussa Al-Sadr, Sheikh Ragheb Harb Sayyed and Abbas Al-Moussawi to serve the Palestinian cause, highlighting Sheikh Al-Zein’s constant support to the Palestinian cause since the beginning of his political activity.
Sayyed Nasrallah added that Sheikh Al-Zein was among those who expressed allegiance to the Islamic Revolution in Iran since its victory over the Shah, ally of US and ‘Israel’, adding that the late cleric used to support all those who defend the Palestinian cause against the US-Israeli schemes.
Hezbollah leader noted that, as a Sunni cleric, Sheikh Al-Zein suffered much harm due to his noble stance towards the events in Syria, “because, unlike the Palestinian cause, that battle witnessed numerous amounts to mislead the public opinion and stir the sedition”.
Sheikh Al-Zein was aware of the fact that targeting Syria was due to its supportive attitude towards the Palestinian cause, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed, adding that his eminence rejected the regime’s practices in Bahrain and the war on Yemen.
Sayyed Nasrallah indicated that Sheikh Al-Zein exposed the misleading fabrications which attempted to give a sectarian aspect to the war on Yemen, adding that the Saudi-led aggression matches with the US plots exclusively.
Sheikh Al-Zein, during last decade, made the heaviest sacrifices and faced the hardest conditions and circumstances, according to Sayyed Nasrallah, who added that the late cleric was one of the symbols of the Islamic unity and proximity among the Islamic schools of thought.
Sayyed Nasrallah hailed the Islamic scholars, who joined Sheikh Al-Zein’s battle against the sectarian incitement in the region, underscoring the role of the Association of Muslim Scholars in frustrating the attempts to turn the major confrontation in the region into a Sunni-Shia strife.
