“Hezbollah has always called for reinforcing the Lebanese army which guarantees Lebanon’s security, integrity, and unity,” he added, “Hezbollah is not concerned about enhancing the military capabilities of the Lebanese Army; the US prevents that for sake of ‘Israeli [regime]’.”
“Some Lebanese parties unfairly blame Hezbollah for the governmental deadlock in Lebanon,” he added.
