Nasrallah: recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over Golan is pivotal event in Arab Israeli conflict

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Tuesday considered the US recognition of Israel's sovereignty over the Golan as a pivotal event in the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Sayyed Nasrallah's words came in a televised speech, shedding light on most recent political developments in Lebanon and the broad region.

Sayyed Nasrallah saluted the resilience of the people in Gaza in the face of the enemy's aggression, and paid tribute to the people of the West Bank and its martyrs, especially the brave young martyr Omar Abu Layla.

Nasrallah also pointed out that the main aim of his speech was to comment on US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to Lebanon and his statements. "However, I will begin with the more important development represented in the US recognition of Israel's sovereignty over the Golan, and consequently the annexation of the Golan to the Israeli enemy," Nasrallah corroborated.

Nasrallah deemed US recognition of the annexation of the occupied Golan to the Israeli enemy as bearing disregard for the Arab and Islamic worlds, especially that the entire Arab and Islamic countries unanimously agree that the Golan is an Arab Syrian land occupied by Israel.

He said US President has discounted everyone, including his allies and friends, for the sake of Israel's interest.
