Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah Friday said the five-year-old Syrian conflict was a continuation of his group's 2006 war with Israel.The 33-day war was sparked on July 12 when Hezbollah captured two Israeli soldiers along Lebanon's southern border. Israel responded by unleashing a devastating aerial bombardment campaign that killed about 1,200 people in Lebanon, mostly civilians.About 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers, died in the war.Regarding Lebanon's army, Nasrallah said it is not able to liberate areas occupied by extremists on the northeastern border with Syria due to "political" reasons, and not because it lacked a will or ability to fight.
