Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah on Friday hailed the liberation of Aleppo as a major victory for the axis of Resistance, stressing that the Takfiris and their backers have failed to topple the Syrian government.

Addressing Hezbollah university students during an academic ceremony held in Beirut, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the battle in Aleppo was fierce regarding the different means of support the Takfiris were offered.

Meanwhile, the Hezbollah S.G. noted that the Takfiris have been defaming and offending Islam and Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) because they are committing their atrocities in the name of this religion.

In this regard, his eminence stressed that the Muslim world bears bears the responsibility to refuse and condemn every crime committed by the Takfiris who are following the Whabbi ideology.

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah urged the Bahraini regime to be wise, warning Manama against committing a folly like Thursday’s move when regime forces stormed Diraz and attempted to attack the house of prominent Shia cleris Sheikh Issa al-Qassem.

In Lebanese affairs, Sayyed Nasrallah voiced satisfaction concerning the positive atmosphere in the country following the formation of the national accord government. His eminence said the government has to assume all its responsibility regarding daily challenges, and not to consider that its only task is to endorse an electoral law.

The resistance's leader also called all Lebanese to cooperate in a bid to meet all challenges especially on the security level.

Crimes in the Name of Islam

Sayyed Nasrallah started his speech congratulating both Muslims and Christians on the anniversaries of the births of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) and Prophet Jesus (PBUH).

His eminence saluted all Mujahedeen (resistance fighters) across Lebanon and Syria who are defending their countries against the Israeli and Takfiri enemies.

Sayyed Nasrallah then warned against the campaign aimed at defaming Islam, noting that our religion has been subjected throughout the last six year to a very dangerous campaign.

“Our religion and our prophet Mohamamd (pbuh) have been greatly offended in the last years,” Sayyed Nasrallah addressed Hezbollah students at the Sayyed Shuahadaa Complex in Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh).

“These offenses are very dangerous because are committed by so-called Muslims and in the name of religion,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, referring to Takfiri terrorists.

“The takfiris’ atrocities are real massacres on the humanitarian and cultural level,” his eminence stated, calling all Muslims to bear their responsibilities in refusing and condemning such crimes.

“Those who keep silent are partners in these crimes,” The Hezbollah S.G. warned.

Sayyed Nasrallah talked about some crime committed by the Takfiri terrorists, explaining their way of thinking and warning against threat posed by such insurgents who follow the Wahhabi ideology.

“Marking Prophet Mohammad’s birth anniversary is banned in the Wahhabi ideology and targeted by the followers of this ideology.”

“Sending children to carry out suicide attacks is something very dangerous, horrible and must be denounced,” his eminence said referring to the blast which took place in Damascus last week, in which a seven-year-old girl's explosive belt was detonated.

Sayyed Nasrallah then voiced condemnation to ISIL’s burning of two Turkish soldiers alive, warning that Turkey is paying price its support to the Takfiri group.

In this regard, Sayyed Nasrallah called on Ankara to announce a clear stance from ISIL.

“Turkey banned social media yesterday in a bid to prevent its people from seeing the price of supporting ISIL,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah S.G. called on media to avoid using the term terrorism while talking about Islam and Muslims, stressing that all Muslims must disavow atrocities committed by Takfiris.

Aleppo Liberation Major Victory for Our Front

Talking about Aleppo, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the liberation of Syria’s second largest city was a major victory for the axis of resistance, stressing that this victory has decisively foiled all attempts by Takfiris and their backers to topple the Syrian government.

“What happened in Aleppo is a real and tough war,” the resistance leader said, noting that huge numbers of foreign militants from across the world took part in battles which took place south and west of Aleppo.

“In face of this big battle our sacrifices were also huge.”

His eminence then dismissed as baseless allegations that the militants in Aleppo were abandoned by their backers, saying that  “support offered to Syria militants by Arab states in six years exceeded support offered to Palestine in sixty years.”

“The militants’ failure in Syria was not because of lack in support but because of the determination of Syria and its allies to defeat terrorism.”

The war against Syria has two goals, Sayyed Nasrallah said, noting that the first goal is to topple the Syrian government while the second is to fully control the country.

In this context, his eminence said that after Aleppo victory we can say that the terrorists and their backers completely failed to achieve their first goal, stressing that Aleppo's liberation “decisively foiled all attempts to topple the Syrian government.”

Bahrain and The Lebanese Gov’t

Before getting into the local issues in Lebanon, Sayyed Nasrallah condemned the Bahraini regime’s attempt to attack the house of prominent Shia cleric Ayatollah Sheikh Issa al-Qassem on Thursday.

“The attack yesterday was a folly,” Sayyed Nasrallah said urging the regime in Manama to “be wise.”

On Lebanese matters, Sayyed Nasrallah said there has been positive atmosphere in Lebanon following the formation of the national accord government, calling on the cabinet to assume its responsibilities and deal with the daily issues of the Lebanese people.

“The government has to assume all its responsibilities, not only the electoral law.”

Concerning the electoral law, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated Hezbollah’s stance regarding this issue, voicing support to an electoral law based on proportionality.

Meanwhile, his eminence stressed that Hezbollah has sought partnership with all Lebanese factions and was adamant that all parties should be represented in the government.

Sayyed Nasrallah also said that the Lebanese security apparatus must be vigilant in order to confront any potential Takfiri attack, noting that Lebanese powers must cooperate to face all challenges.
