US sanctions will not 'damage strength of the resistance' says Lebanon's Hezbollah

The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah dismissed potential US sanctions aimed at the group on the anniversary of the end of its war with Israel.

Speaking in a televised address to mark the end of the war in 2006 Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said,

“The American administration with all available and possible means, will not be able to damage the strength of the resistance.”

Mr Nasrallah said that Lebanon was being subjected to intimidation and threats of an Israeli attack, due to its failure to take a tough stance on Hezbollah.

US lawmakers last month introduced legislation with the view of increasing sanctions on Hezbollah by further restricting its ability to raise money and recruit, whilst also increasing pressure on banks that do business with it.
