Hezbollah General Secretary Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah has on Sunday offered his condolences to the Lebanese Army Command and the families of Akkar explosion martyrs, saying he hopes that Allah will grant the wounded a speedy recovery and underscoring the Resistance’s readiness to dispatch aids to those aggrieved by the tragedy which had occurred earlier on the same day.
Addressing an Ashura mourning ceremony in Beirut’s neighbourhood of Dahiyeh, Sayyid Nasrallah denounced those politicising the incident and trading accusations among political parties.
Sayyid Nasrallah also called for a speedy Lebanese cabinet formation, away from the partisan interests and demands, highlighting the importance of the new government in addressing the economic crisis in the country.
The Sayyid also indicated that the Lebanese authorities have failed to address the fuel oil crisis in Lebanon and have abandoned the people suffering at the gas stations, highlighting the role of greedy oil firms and those who were involved in enhancing the black market trade.
Stressing that hoarding gasoline in the residential areas is a criminal act, Sayyid Nasrallah stressed that seizing oil trucks, as is by some citizens, is “religiously forbidden.”
Sayyid Nasrallah pointed to the US administration as planning to lead Lebanon and Iraq into a state of anarchy, shedding light on the vandals who sabotage public properties on the orders of the US embassy in Beirut.
Meanwhile, Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah confirmed that Hezbollah will certainly help bring in Iranian fuel into Lebanon, adding that Iran’s leadership informed him about its readiness to provide any kind of help.
Sayyid Nasrallah also called on pro-US political parties in Lebanon to scrutinise the American withdrawal from Afghanistan, stressing that “it shows how the Americans betray their allies, and, accordingly, can never protect Lebanon from the Israeli enemy.”
The Hezbollah leader emphasized that “the Army-People-Resistance formula can protect Lebanon in face of the Israeli and takfiri enemies,” recalling, on the eighth anniversary of the Ruwais (Dahiyeh) blast, how the Resistance struck the terrorists in their strongholds.
Finally, Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah affirmed that “Lebanon must be independent economically,” underscoring the role of the productive (agricultural and industrial) sectors in sustaining Lebanon’s economic situation, instead of relying on foreign donations and remaining controlled by these donors.
