"A message to all those who are conspiring against the resistance and banking on change... We will never let go of our arms. Day after day, the resistance gains more fighters, trains better fighters and arms even more heavily."
-- Hassan Nasrallah
Hezbollah's leader Hassan Nasrallah has today made a rare public appearance addressing a large crowd marking the Day of Ashura pledging that Hezbollah will continue to be an armed and formidable force regardless of regional change. The crowd chanted "Death to Israel" in response.
Nasrallah also pledged support to the Syrian government (of which Hezbollah is an arms client) stating that quote:
"There are some people who do not want reforms, security and stability in Syria, and neither civil peace nor dialogue. There are people who want to destroy Syria to make up for their defeat in Iraq. Syria is a partner in defeating the Americans in Iraq."
