2014.09.01 02:40:32

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel agreed to a permanent truce in its 50-day Gaza war with Hamas in order to keep focused on the threat from regional militants.

"We fought for 50 days and we could have fought for 500 days, but we are in a situation where the Islamic State is at the gates of Jordan, Al-Qaeda is in the Golan and Hezbollah is at the border with Lebanon," Netanyahu said in an address on public television.

His remarks come as the United States, Israel's chief ally, is calling for a global coalition to fight the jihadists who have set up an Islamic "caliphate" in areas they have overrun in Syria and Iraq.

Quotes from the speech of Hassan Nasrallah
2014.07.26 03:05:25

Quotes from the speech Hassan Nasrallah, the secretary-general of the Lebanese group Hezbollah, made on Friday:

"At the end of the day, three factors will decide the winner of the battle [between Palestinian factions and Israel]: the field, people’s steadfastness and the political prudence. What is targeted in Gaza is resistance, its arms, its steadfastness and the hope it gives to people. As Gaza has won victory; as we are on day 18 and the Zionists, backed by the whole world, are not able to achieve their goals from the war, it is a living proof that the resistance has triumphed."

"Israeli failure is clear; achievements by the resistance are evident. Israelis' fear of failure caused them to lower the ceiling of their demands as they learned the lessons from 2006 war on Lebanon. It is also a proof of the failure of their intelligence on the capabilities of the resistance."

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah
2014.05.26 04:16:54

Hezbollah has sent thousands of fighters into Syria to support President Bashar al-Assad's forces against rebels, saying they are defending an "axis of resistance" against Israel and the West.

Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shia armed group, is playing an increasingly significant role in Syria's civil war. Some support the group's defense of Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian president, but others say it has destabilized Lebanon.

The Syrian opposition said thousands of Hezbollah men are in Syria defending the Assad regime. And many argue that Hezbollah's decision to fight alongside the Syrian government has caused opposition groups to target Shia neighborhoods in Lebanon with car bombs.
