Nasrallah Condemns Lebanon's Stance at Mecca Summit

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah on Friday condemned the stance expressed by the Lebanese delegation on Iran at the Mecca summit, saying that it goes against the policy of dissociation stipulated by the government's policy statement.

"The Lebanese delegation should not have attended the Mecca summit," Nasrallah said in a televised speech.

Nasrallah refuted the U.S. claims about Hezbollah's precision-missiles factories in Lebanon, saying that "it's none of the US business whether we have precision rockets and facilities to produce them or not."

"We don't have factories in Lebanon to produce precision missiles, but if the Americans keep insisting on this issue, we'll establish ones."

Nasrallah said a war between the United States and Iran is unlikely to erupt, adding that Washington is aware that any confrontation would make it pay a heavy price.

"War against Iran will not stop at Iran's borders. The entire region will be set ablaze," Nasrallah warned.

"All U.S. forces and interests in the region will be annihilated", he added, saying that any war would also affect U.S. allies, Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Nasrallah deemed it as a moral, religious, humanitarian and jihadi duty to confront the U.S. peace plan for the Middle East, saying that it is a "historic crime" that must be stopped.
