Nasrallah: We're transporting weapons without Israel's knowledge

Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said that Hizbullah was in possession of many different types of weapons and that it was the organization’s right to use the weapons against Israel.

“We are secretly transporting weapons and Israel doesn’t know about it,” Nasrallah said.

In his speech at a rally in Beirut Friday, Nasrallah hinted that Hizbullah wouldn’t shy away from confronting Israel in the future. “If a confrontation develops, our weapons, our blood, and our youth will stand shoulder to shoulder beside the Lebanese army,” he said.

Hizbullah’s leader also commented on last week’s incident in which Lebanese authorities seized a truck carrying weapons in the outskirts of Beirut.

“The most important element in the resistance’s strength is its secrecy … why are we being demanded to show are weapons openly?” Nasrallah asked.

Nasrallah added that he would not forgive the Lebanese authorities for confiscating weapons intended for use by the organization.

He also commented on calls by Christian Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea and Druze leader Walid Jumblatt to transfer all weapons in Hizbullah’s possession to the Lebanese army. He said he was prepared to give the army a hundred times the amount of weapons, but that he would not allow even a single bullet to be taken from Hizbullah.

Nasrallah concluded that “no one will succeed in creating conflict between Hizbullah and the army” and that he did not differentiate between the army and Hizbullah, saying they could combine their weapons, missiles, and resources and fight side by side.


Hezbollah will not forgive Lebanon arms seizure AFP Friday February 16, 03:06 PM

BEIRUT (AFP) - Hezbollah chief Hasan Nasarallah has said he will not forgive Lebanese authorities for seizing weapons from his anti-Israeli Shiite guerrilla group.

"We will not forgive anyone who confiscates a bullet," he said in a speech Friday during the annual commemoration of the killing of two senior Hezbollah officials in Israeli attacks in 1987 and 1992.

"We are ready to provide the army with all the weapons that it requires ... but we will not forgive anyone who confiscates a bullet," he said.

Last week, Lebanese authorities seized a truckful of weapons belonging to Hezbollah near Beirut.

Nasrallah said "we have plenty of weapons, of all kinds ... and we have the right to transport our arms to combat Israel, even if we transport them in secret to hide them from the Israeli enemy."

"The Resistance will always stand by the Lebanese army, with our weapons, men and blood ... to defend Lebanon," he said.

Defence Minister Elias Murr later said the army will use the seized weapons to fight Israel in case of any future violation of Lebanese sovereignty.
