Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah Friday called on those interested in ending the presidential void to pursue the matter with Saudi Arabia.On the upcoming municipal elections, Nasrallah called on the Lebanese to vote en masse.Turning to the regional situation, Nasrallah accused Israel and the United States of attempting to dismantle the resistance in the Arab world to thaw obstacles in the region by waging a war against Syria."As long as Palestine and parts of Lebanon and Syria are occupied, then the resistance will exist," Nasrallah said. He said that Israel in 2006, after its war with Hezbollah in July, reached a conclusion to break the resistance by targeting the country that supports the group – Syria.

Hezbollah forces have been fighting in Syria since around the beginning of 2013 .
