Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah says the movement provides Lebanon with stability and security against a ‘permanent threat called Israel’.
Speaking at a press conference in Beirut, Nasrallah said that Israel has always been and always will be a threat to Lebanon, adding that the resistance movement plays a ‘key role’ in repelling such threats.
The Hezbollah secretary general called for a defense strategy based on the power of the resistance and the army that would preserve the security of Lebanon.
Among Hezbollah’s main priorities is to "continue the mission of liberating the territories which still are in Israeli occupation," Nasrallah said.
"Hezbollah does not underestimate the current challenges and threats or the severity of the confrontation path. However, Hezbollah has now clearer choices and more trust in its people," He added.
The Hezbollah leader also warned Lebanon’s political parties against political sectarianism and division.
He stressed that Lebanon belongs to all Lebanese and it should become a powerful country and avoid federalism.
"It is the country to which we have given our most precious sacrifices for its sovereignty and pride, dignity and liberation," he said.
"It should be mentioned that one of the most important conditions for establishing a home of this type is having a fair state, a state which is capable and strong, as well as a political system that truly represents the will of the people and their aspirations for justice, freedom and security, stability and well-being and dignity," he concluded.
