Hezbollah sends aid convoys to quake-hit Syria
Hezbollah, on February 8, revealed that it sent convoys of humanitarian aid to earthquake-affected areas in Syria, in light of the catastrophic earthquake that struck the Arab country amid the inhumane Western sanctions.
Deputy Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sheikh Naim Qassem, told Lebanon's Al-Manar television channel that countries around the world must rush to send rescue workers, equipment, and aid to earthquake victims.
Qassem offered his condolences to Syria and the Syrian government, announcing that Hezbollah has dispatched convoys of humanitarian aid to quake-hit areas.
He argued that US sanctions, backed by most Arab countries, are hindering relief and rescue operations, adding that the coercive measures violate fundamental humanitarian principles.
The top Hezbollah official emphasized that the West must understand that Syrians are united in their fight against Takfiri militant groups. He also emphasized that Hezbollah is standing by Syria and Turkey in the aftermath of the tragic incident.
