Lebanese Hezbollah Calls for Revenge on the US
Lebanese Hezbollah Calls for Revenge on the US. The Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah has called for “great American crime” to be avenged anywhere in the world.
The movement refers to the assassination attempt by which the US with drones, among other things, cleared the Iranian General Qassem Soleimani on the site of the Baghdad airport. Soleimani is said to have just arrived on a plane from Syria or Lebanon.
Soleimani was one of the best-known soldiers who had to gain more influence in the Middle East for Tehran.
He started supporting Lebanese Shiites in their fight against Israel and later in their battle against Sunni extremists in Syria. Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said his movement continues on the path taken with Soleimani.
According to him, the US has achieved nothing with the murders, and they must be punished, the al-Manar broadcaster reported.
President Assad’s Syria also reacted indignantly to the death of Soleimani. It is mostly thanks to Soleimani that Assad’s regime survived the civil war.
Damascus described the American assassination as a severe escalation of the situation in the region and accused the US of acting like a criminal gang. Opponents of Assad praised the liquidation of Soleimani.
According to the Kremlin, tensions in the Middle East are only increasing due to the American attack.
