Hariri responds to Nasrallah’s
statements on Syria

Future Movement leader MP Saad Hariri on Wednesday responded to the statements of Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, during which he said that “friends” of the Syrian regime would not allow it to fall.

 

“We do not desire to enter in an argument with [Nasrallah] on the statements he launched yesterday, most of which do not relate in any way with logic or responsibility,” Hariri said in a statement issued by his office.

 

“Nasrallah is erasing Lebanon off the political map and is making Hezbollah the substitute for the state,” Hariri added.

 

Hariri also said that the Syrian regime had already fallen and that the will to revive it is not in the hands of Hezbollah or Iran.

 

“Nasrallah chose to stand by the side of the oppressors and announced his commitment to defend the Syrian regime and execute the Iranian orders."

 

Hezbollah’s leader vowed that “friends” of the Syrian regime would not allow it to fall and that his party would defend Lebanese Shiites residing in Al-Qusayr.

 

“Syria has real friends in the region and across the world that will not let the country fall into the hands of the US, Israel, or takfiris,” Nasrallah said in a televised address Tuesday evening.

 

Hezbollah has come under criticism for reportedly fighting on the side of the Syrian regime against rebels in the Al-Qusayr area and outside Damascus, with news outlets in the past weeks reporting that a number of party members had been killed in fighting in Syria.

 

However, Nasrallah denied that large numbers of Hezbollah fighters had been killed in the fighting in Syria.
