Israel is a cancer - Hezbollah leader

15 August 2014, 14:44

Cape Town – The leader of Lebanese militant group Hezbollah has called Israel a cancer and that the “ultimate goal should be to remove it”, according to a report.

According to a Jerusalem Post report Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah criticised the Israeli offensive saying that Israel seeks short wars that lead to quick, decisive, and clear victories.

Recent AFP reports have put the Palestinian death toll at 1 962, of whom the United Nations says 72% were civilians. Sixty four Israeli soldiers have also lost their lives.

Nasrallah said the most dangerous problem faced by the Lebanese/Arabic public is reaching a point where Israel’s existence is considered as normal by regional groups.

He added that Israel is an illegitimate entity, a threat to the region, and that the ultimate goal of the Arab and Islamic nation is to end Israel’s existence, Alalam reported.

Hezbollah is a Shi’a political party and Islamist group based in Lebanon, where their armed forces are considered more powerful than the national army.
