BEIRUT: Hezbollah slammed hard-line Islamist groups and the states that sponsor them Thursday, holding them responsible for the recent wave of violence in Syria and Iraq.

The party said in a statement that the explosions that hit Aleppo and Idlib this week, killing and wounding hundreds of innocent civilians, revealed the dark reality of the gangs and their criminality.

“Along with these gangs, those responsible for these acts are states that are fostering chaos in Syria through providing the killers with all forms of military, financial and political aid.”

Hezbollah said that similar explosions are targeting Iraqi cities, killing dozens. The party said that these attacks aim at destroying the future of Iraq and Syria through targeting youth.
