Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah admitted Sunday that U.S. sanctions against the party had impacted it, but vowed the sanctions would not weaken the group's resolve.The United States designates the entire entity of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.Nevertheless, Nasrallah said the party will take the responsibility for the sanctions, claiming that they are an element of the battle that Hezbollah is undertaking.Nasrallah said that Aoun isn't a Hezbollah agent, rather what bothers the U.S. is that it wanted the Lebanese president to be a U.S. agent.Touching on the fight against Daesh (ISIS), Nasrallah also blamed the U.S. for delaying the Army's battle against the group on the Lebanese-Syrian border. The battle against Daesh doesn't end before [the group] is eliminated," he said, adding that the group had been expelled from several areas.He responded to those saying that Hezbollah should not pursue the group to the Syrian-Iraqi border by claiming that if Hezbollah halts the battle, Daesh will reassert itself.
