TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement slammed the recent US-led strike against Syria, stressing that the movement will continue to stand by Damascus and the Syrian nation.

The “vicious attack on Syria is a blatant violation of the Syrian sovereignty and its people’s dignity”, Hezbollah said in a statement on Saturday, according to Al-Manar news network.

The attack was “a clear completion of the latest Zionist aggression on Syria,” the statement added.

“It represents direct and forthright support to terrorist and criminal gangs which have been for years sponsored and funded,” Hezbollah said.

“They ordered this farce in order to justify their aggression which represents a humiliation to the what had been left of the United Nations, the Security Council, and the so-called international community.”

“We announce our straight and firm support to the Syrian leadership and people,” Hezbollah further said in the statement.

“We assure that the war launched against the region’s people and resistance movements won’t reach its goals, and the Ummah (nation) will emerge more powerful and more determined to confront and to triumph.”
