Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has said, that anyone who supports Palestine would be besieged and subjected to sanctions.
“Everyone who belongs to this axis is subjected to sieges and penalties,” Nasrallah said in a conference on Jerusalem, citing Lebanon and “other countries and resistance movements in the region.”
“The sanctions aim at forcing us to abandon Jerusalem and the Palestinian cause and to accept normalization with Israel” Nasrallah went on to say, suggesting a new name for the axis of resistance. “It must be called the axis of al-Quds,” Nasrallah said.
He added that steadfastness in the face of this “terrorism” is an essential part of the resistance’s battle.
The conference comes after days of rising tensions between Israel and the Palestinians following a string of deadly attacks inside Israel, arrest raids in the West Bank, clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police at Jerusalem’s most sensitive holy site, and the heaviest fighting along the Gaza frontier since a war last year.
Nasrallah will also deliver a speech on Al-Quds International Day on Friday.
