In a speech via video to mark the eleventh anniversary of the liberation of the south from Israeli occupation, Nasrallah called for the Syrian people to protect his regime.

According to Nasrallah, the majority of Syrian people trust their president and his promises.

"We are peace and stability in Syria," said Nasrallah, who urged "not to interfere in the problems of that country." "Let them solve their own things", he added, referring to allegations that some Lebanese groups are behind the riots in Syria. He also called on Lebanon to reject any sanctions from the U.S.

or other Western countries against Syria: "We must work together to come out unscathed in their interest and in ours," he said. In his speech, Nasrallah also criticized Israel, a country that, in his view, is "weaker than a spider web." For the leader of Hezbollah, which considers that the Arabs are close to victory, we need an Arab decision to show the weakness of Israel.

"The problem is in us, not in Israel," Nasrallah said, recalling the late Iranian Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, who said that if the millions of Arabs throw a bucket of water to Israel, it would disappear . "We're close to victory and any U.S. attack in the region will not lead to anything.

The Resistance (Hezbollah) will remain true to its objectives and the blood of its martyrs. We have no fear," he said.
