Hezbollah, Lebanon's Baath call for eradication of Israel

Hezbollah-Baath party meeting in Sidon, south Lebanon, Friday, Oct. 19, 2012 (The Daily Star/HO).

BEIRUT: Hezbollah and Lebanon’s Baath Party stressed Friday the need for unity to foil "the conspiracy" against the Syria-Iran-Hezbollah axis and called for the eradication of Israel.


A joint statement released following a meeting between head of Hezbollah’s Sidon region, Sheikh Zeid Daher, and leader of the Arab Socialist Baath Party of Lebanon Fayez Shukr said the two men discussed the general situation in Lebanon and the region, particularly the Syria crisis.


“The two sides underscored the need to unify ranks in the face of the big conspiracy hatched against the resistance-rejectionist axis,” the statement said, in reference to Syria, Iran and Hezbollah.


The Hezbollah and Baath officials, who met at Hezbollah’s Sidon’s office, also stressed the need to double efforts to wipe out Israel.


“The main enemy in Lebanon and the region is the Zionist entity and we must exert every effort and our energy to eradicate this arrogant entity,” the statement added.
