Baghdad The Secretary-General of the Lebanese “Hezbollah”, Hassan Nasrallah, said that putting the party on the terrorist lists may be linked to developments in the region or the parliamentary elections.
He pointed out in a speech on Friday evening that “putting the resistance on terrorist lists will not affect the determination of the resistance fighters or the awareness of the environments incubating them.”
He called on the Lebanese to “transform their independence into real and complete independence, whether it is formal or incomplete,” adding that “as long as Lebanon is in the circle of the Israeli threat, we are still at the heart of the independence battle that we will continue.”
He added that “there must come a day when the debate that is renewed every year on Lebanon’s independence in 1943 will be resolved,” pointing out that “Hezbollah” will achieve for Lebanon “independence, sovereignty and freedom without discussion.”
It is noteworthy that Australia, a few days ago, classified the Lebanese “Hezbollah”, with its political and military wings, as a “terrorist organization”, in a move that expanded the scope of the sanctions that included exclusively the military wing.
A number of Western countries, led by the United States, have designated the Lebanese “Hezbollah” as a terrorist organization with its military and political wings, while other countries have only included its military wing on the list of terrorist organizations and kept its political wing outside the framework of sanctions.
