Alwaght- The leader of Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement said the US and its allies created Takfiri terror groups to massacre Shiite Muslims in different countries as part of a campaign of “genocide” against Shiite Muslims.
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Wednesday that the US and its allies attempted to destabilize regional countries, including Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon to cleanse the West Asia region of Shiite Muslims.
The Hezbollah leader further pointed to the Saudi regime’s US-backed war against Yemen as another example of attempts aimed at Shiite Muslims.
The Saudis unsuccessfully sought to introduce the Yemen campaign as a war between Shiite and Sunni Muslims, said Nasrallah, adding, however, that the offensive faced defeat and failed to achieve its goals.
He noted that the US and Israel have failed in all the plots they hatched to advance their own agenda for the West Asia region.
Nasrallah referred to Israel’s 33-day military onslaught against Lebanon in 2006, in which the Hezbollah resistance movement inflicted heavy losses on the regime’s military.
He further touched on the Western-backed militancy gripping Syria since 2011, which also failed to fulfill the goal of toppling the government of President Bashar al-Assad – thanks to the support of Hezbollah, Iran and Russia for the Arab nation.
Having suffered defeat in all their plots, the US, Israel and their vassal states – particularly Saudi Arabia – are now seeking to take the war to Iran by putting sanctions and economic pressure on the Islamic Republic.
The Hezbollah leader was referring to Washington’s hostile policies against Iran, which have intensified under President Donald Trump’s regime.
