Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah Friday scoffed at a U.S. sanctions law seeking to tighten the noose on the party's finances, saying that the law would not have any financial impact because the group receives its budget from Iran.He said Hezbollah entirely rejected the U.S. sanctions, calling them an attack on the country's sovereignty. However, Nasrallah warned against Lebanese banks targeting Hezbollah's supporters.Nasrallah said Hezbollah has started a dialogue with Lebanese officials on the basis of rejecting the U.S. law.The U.S. law, which went into effect in March, threatens to bar from the American financial market any bank that knowingly deals with Hezbollah or institutions or persons affiliated with the group. In his speech, Nasrallah touched on his party's involvement in the 5-year-old war in Syria, disclosing that Hezbollah has lost 26 fighters this month in the battle for Aleppo. Nasrallah said the 26 fighters Hezbollah lost since the beginning of June was a relatively low figure compared to the 617 militants he said were killed on the other side.
