Nasrallah slams Lebanon government for confiscating weapons
Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Friday stated he would not forgive Lebanese authorities for seizing weapons from his movement's militay arm. "We will not forgive anyone who confiscates a bullet," he said in a speech Friday during the annual commemoration of the killing of two senior Hizbullah officials in Israeli attacks in 1987 and 1992.
"We are prepared to provide the army with all the weapons that it requires ... but we will not forgive anyone who confiscates a bullet," he said, according to AFP.
Last week, Lebanese authorities seized a truckful of weapons belonging to Hizbullah near the Lebanese capital. Nasrallah said "we have plenty of weapons, of all kinds ... and we have the right to transport our arms to combat Israel, even if we transport them in secret to hide them from the Israeli enemy."
"The Resistance will always stand by the Lebanese army, with our weapons, men and blood ... to defend Lebanon," he said.
