Qassem Says 'Internal' Parties Have Role in Hizbullah Sanctions


Hizbullah deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qassem accused “internal” parties in Lebanon of “having a role in the US sanctions against Hizbullah,” al-Jooumhouria daily reported on Thursday.

“We have information that internal parties are part of a system promoting Americans and their sanctions, and they report periodically to the Americans and propose specific measures on how to confront Hizbullah in Lebanon,” Qassem said in remarks to the daily.

Assuring that US sanctions “won’t affect” Hizbullah, he said Hizbullah understands the US enmity towards the party, “but we won’t accept sanctions against Lebanese citizens, and institutions, or their intervention in the country, pushing things in certain directions and order the government and central bank to make certain arrangements,” he said.

He said Hizbullah won’t accept “orders from the US President. We are weighing our options now.”

Bless anyone person, entity, organization, brigade or country that inflicts extreme pain and unbearable suffering, death, torture, and destruction upon the iranian sectarian terrorist militia, its leaders, members, sponsors, supporters or followers wherever they may be.

hizbala terrorises the country with its weapons since the year 2000, do they expect no form of resistance? Others lay not have rockets but they've got phones, papers, pencils and stamps to resist!

I thought they just said a week ago that it was unprecedended consuensus among the lebanese regarding Hezbollah. I guess they have woken up from their dreams now.

I agree 100% with Sheikh Qassem, internal parties have role in Hizbullah sanctions. Those internal parties are, Hizbullah, the Resistance, the Iranian militias in Lebanon, the Lebanese arm of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and many more like them.

so what. We hate hizbollah that is cannibalizing our institutions, justice and security forces. We hate hizbollah that turned its guns on the lebanese citizens and is responsible for the death of thousands of young men for the sake of the iranian revolutions. Let all the sanctions fall on them and hope that one day hizbollah can be a bad memory.
