Hezbollah Leader Vows to Protect Lebanon's Oil, Gas Resources
Secretary-General of the Lebanese Hezbollah Movement Seyed Hassan Nasrallah said the movement is prepared to take necessary measures to protect the country's oil and gas resources. - "We call on the state to put forward a national strategic plan and if they want to leave it up to us, we are ready to defend Lebanon's fossil fuel resources," Nasrallah said in a televised speech on the occasion of Arbaeen, marking the 40th day after the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (PBUH). "In order to protect the national oil resources, the resistance is ready to do whatever is asked of it," Nasrallah said. He described the potential reserves as "a national, historic opportunity" to lift Lebanon from its socioeconomic crisis. Last year, the Hezbollah chief warned Zionist regime against attempts aimed at plundering Lebanon's offshore gas and oil reserves and threatened to target Israel's oil installations in case Lebanon's oil facilities were attacked.
