Nasrallah: Our Intervention in Syria Was Crucial

Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, said in a meeting with Shiite leaders that, “If we would not have intervened in Syria at the right time and in the right manner, the “Islamic State in Iraq and Levant” (ISIL, ISIS) would have reached Beirut.” Nasrallah expressed satisfaction over the recent security situation in Syria.

Nasrallah spoke at length during a meeting n the security situation in Iraq and even wondered aloud why those voices who opposed Hezbollah’s intervention in Syria are not currently condemning the actions of the ISIL.
