Hezbollah says battle in Syria is part of conflict with Israel

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary-General Sheikh Naim Qassem said that fighting takfiri groups in Syria is part of its battle against Israel.

The Iranian Tasnim Agency quoted Qassem saying that the Syrian opposition's sacrifices aimed at protecting the region's future generations from the Zionist takfiri project which aims to loot their sovereignty.

Qassem made his remarks during a meeting on Friday with a partisan delegation from Syria which met him to express gratitude and thanks for Hezbollah's sacrifices in Syria.

He hailed the steadfastness of the Syrian people and army which he said was confronting the Zionist takfiri project, adding that the defeat of this scheme in Syria will lead to a similar fate in Lebanon and Palestine.

He noted that the only solution is to confront the international invasion of the region, adding that the battle's centre this time is Syria.
