[Full speech] Nasrallah: Saudi war on Yemen guided by US plots for region

The secretary-general of Lebanon’s resistance movement of Hezbollah says the Zionist-American axis is still seeking to realize its dream of stretching the areas under the Israeli regime’s occupation from the Nile to the Euphrates.

“The axis is still seeking to realize the dream of the Nile to the Euphrates,” Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said during a televised address on Wednesday.

The occupying regime claimed existence in a hugely Western-supported and -favored war in 1948 by seizing huge expanses of regional territories. It overran other vast swathes of territory in another such war in 1967.

Later, the regime and its Zionist supporters around the world were widely reported to be seeking to expand the territories under its occupation to such a sheer extent that would cover some of the areas lying between the two rivers.

Nasrallah said the axis uses “sectarian and religious plots” as a weapon. He said the Zionists and Americans are deploying the weapon by trying to paint a “sectarian tone” over regional conflicts.

‘Saudi war on Yemen guided by US plots for region’

Referring to the war on Yemen, Nasrallah said contrary to what Saudi Arabia sought to portray at the beginning of the military campaign, the conflict has nothing to do with “Shias and Sunnis.”

The Hezbollah chief was referring to the main Islamic religious strands and attempts at sowing division between the two.

“The war is rather guided by the United States’ goals and its plots for the region,” Nasrallah said.

He said there was a “media war” underway against Yemen’s defenders to cast them as the party that rejects any cessation of the war and Riyadh as the one that seeks the campaign’s termination.
