Breakthrough! Hezbollah Sets Conditions for Agreement
Posted on Aug 12, 2006
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said his Islamic militant group (and political party) will abide by the U.N. cease-fire resolution but will continue fighting as long as Israeli troops remain in south Lebanon.
Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said Saturday that the Islamic militant group will abide by a U.N. cease-fire resolution but will continue fighting as long as Israeli troops remained in south Lebanon.
Nasrallah grudgingly accepted the cease-fire plan in a televised address as the Lebanese Cabinet was in session to vote on whether to agree to the U.N. resolution. Hezbollah has two ministers in the government.
“We will not be an obstacle to any (government) decision ... but our ministers will express reservations about articles that we consider unjust and unfair,” he said.
