The Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah says Washington’s decision to set the date for moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem al-Quds is the result of “complicity” among Arab nations and a step towards eradicating the Palestinian cause.
“It is certain that this Arab complicity encouraged the US administration to speedily implement its decision to move its embassy to al-Quds,” Hezbollah said in a statement issued on Monday. The projected embassy opening on May 17 would coincide with the 70th anniversary of Nakba Day (Day of Catastrophe), which marks the forcible eviction of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homeland by Israelis in 1948. The Lebanese resistance movement said the US decision proved disregard for the Arab world and all Muslims as well as the international community, and called for firm response to the controversial move. “The resistance and intifada (uprising) are the fruitful way to regain the occupied territories and all the sanctities,” Hezbollah noted.
