beirut - The Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah is once again turning its sights on the Palestinian cause after the battle in Syria. Hizbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah stressed this on Monday.
Hezbollah fighters play a crucial role in the struggle of Syrian President Assad's army against radical Sunni rebels. Together with huge Russian air support, Assad seems to be winning and the rebels in Syria seem to be losing out.
Nasrallah said that 'after the victories that Hezbollah won elsewhere in the region', he now wants to turn his attention to Palestine again. He called on his allies 'to develop a common strategy against Israel. '
Tens of thousands of Hezbollah supporters have once again demonstrated Monday in the Lebanese capital Beirut against last week's US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
