BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – The Deputy Head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council, Sheikh Nabil Qa’ouq, stated on Saturday that his organization will give full support to the Palestinian resistance fighters that are fighting US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“Hezbollah does not give significance for the American or Saudi anger because it does not suffer from any sense of appeasement or weakness for America and its followers in the region,” said Qaouq at a memorial service, as quoted by Naharnet.
“Saudi normalization and concessions with the Israeli enemy are more painful than the Trump decision. The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques has failed Jerusalem and the sanctity of Muslims,” he added in reference to a statement made by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir about the US decision.
Hezbollah sponsored a massive demonstration in southern Beirut this week that called out Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.
