Hezbollah’s leader in support of Syrian government against rebels

Militant group Hezbollah’s leader has lent support of his powerful movement to the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad and vowed to help the government in securing a victory against the Syrian rebels. Hassan Nasrallah considers the Syrian rebels as proxy warriors for the West and Israel.

The current Nasrallah’s comments are looked at as the most clear to date revealing Hezbollah’s stance to the defense of Assad’s government which has been trying its best to crush the rebels’ revolt who have got the support of United States and its allies.

Nasrallah’s comments have come at a time when Syrian government forces, backed by Hezbollah military have deepened their assault on the strategic Syrian town of Qusair, near Lebanese border. Fierce fighting was reported from both sides in Qusair six days after Syrian forces and their Hezbollah allies attacked the rebel stronghold for quite some time now.
