Nasrallah: U.S. wants to hijack Arab revolutions

BEIRUT: Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah praised Palestinians who protested Sunday on the Golan Heights and accused Washington of seeking to hijack the Arab revolutions.

In Majdal Shams, on the Golan Heights, Israeli troops opened fire Sunday as demonstrators sought to push through the mined cease-fire line, which had been reinforced with several rows of barbed wire blocking access to a fence. Damascus said 23 protesters were killed.

“We honor Palestinians who gathered at the borders of the Golan Heights on Sunday in a clear message of determination in this nation,” Nasrallah told the opening of a conference on “Intellectual Imam Khamenei” Monday morning.

“What happened yesterday on the anniversary of the Naksa on the Golan Heights reveals that the U.S. administration wants to hijack the Arab revolutions,” Nasrallah said. “What happened also demonstrates Washington’s absolute commitment to Israel’s security,” he said.

“This is Washington which talks about human rights and freedoms,” he added.
