Hassan Nasrallah: We will not be neutral in any war against Iran

Seyed Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese Shia militia group, Hezbollah, officially announced that Hezbollah will come to the support of its religious leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, in the fight against Israel and the United States.

Nasrallah said: “We reject any war plans against the Iranian republic, because such a war will ignite the region and destroy countries and peoples. It will be a war against the entire axis of resistance.”

“We reiterate our stance as part of the axis of resistance: we will not be neutral in the battle between right and wrong, in the battle between Hussein and Yazid. This supposed war will be the end of Israel and the American hegemony and presence in the region,” Nasrallah declared.

Nasrallah once again declared his loyalty to the leader of the Islamic Republic, Ali Khamenei: “Our imam, leader, master, and Hussein (Third Shia Imam) in this era is Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei. He is the leader of the axis of resistance and Iran is the heart and main center of the axis.”

Nasrallah had previously warned that “a war against Iran will not be limited to the borders of Iran.”

Recently, tensions between Hezbollah and Israel have been rising as Israel continues to attack the bases of Iranian forces or Iranian-backed militia in Syria and Iraq.

Last week, Hezbollah fired an anti-tank missile at an Israeli armored vehicle and claimed that all the passengers were wounded and killed. They said it was a response to an Israeli attack on a militia base in Syria which killed two Hezbollah members. Israel denied any casualties from the attack against the armored vehicle and retaliated by targeting southern Lebanon with artillery.
