Hassan Nasrallah responded to the Arab League statement of Sunday branding Hizballah a “terrorist organization” and condemning Iran for destabilizing the region, saying they were expected. “While Hizballah was fighting ISIS which is labeled terrorist by the whole world, they were calling Hizballah terrorists.” US helicopters had evacuated ISIS leaders from the battlefields in al-Bukamal, he charged..
On Lebanon, Nasrallah said: “We are awaiting the return of the prime minister, who is yet to resign, and we’re open to any dialogue and discussion in the country. The most important factor for Lebanon’s security,” he said, “is the ‘resistance’ and Hizballah’s arms. If you want security for Lebanon, don’t interfere in our affairs and don’t incite Israel to strike it.” Hizballah had nothing to do with the firing of the missile from Yemen at Saudi Arabia.
