Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah has called for a popular mobilization among his party's supporters to help solidify a win in the "existential battle" in Syria.The Hezbollah chief said the group had no choice but to seek the defeat of the "takfiri" groups in the region, or else face slaughter, shame, rape and enslavement.Hezbollah and the Syrian Army have achieved a large number of field victories in the Qalamoun over thelast two and a half weeks, taking more than 310 square kilometers out of the 780 square kilometers of land that had previously been controlled by jihadis. In a statement Saturday night, Hezbollah spokesperson Mohammad Afif said some of the above remarks attributed to party chief Hasan Nasrallah were taken out of context.
