Israeli strikes will lead to state’s demise: Hezbollah

BEIRUT: Deputy head of Hezbollah Sheikh Naim Qassem said Sunday that Palestinian armed resistance in Gaza has created a balance of terror in occupied Palestine, ushering in a new phase in the confrontation that would eventually lead to Israel’s defeat. 

Commenting on the continuing Israeli offensive in Gaza, Qassem lashed out at the U.S. and the international community, accusing them of complicity, while deploring “appalling Arab apathy” toward Israel’s criminality. 

“The glorious Palestinian resistance backed by its generous people, will come out victorious, as did the resistance in Lebanon, because they are the rightful owner of the land,” Qassem said in reference to the July 2006 conflict between Israel and Hezbollah.
