'Resistance lone way to free al-Quds'

Hezbollah Secretary General has described resistance as the only way to bring an end to the Israeli occupation and to liberate of al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Speaking on the occasion of International Quds Day, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Friday that the event reminds the world about the violated rights of the Palestinians and that al-Quds only belongs to the people of Palestine.

He also emphasized that Quds Day provides an opportunity to shed light on Israel's atrocities against Palestinians who want nothing more than their occupied lands.

Nasrallah accused the US of trying to destroy resistance in the Middle East because it is the only thing threatening the occupiers.

"US came to stay in Iraq but the resistance of Iraqi people resulted in the US "partial withdrawal" from Iraq," Nasrallah told hundreds of Hezbollah supporters via a video link during a ceremony marking International Quds Day in Beirut's southern suburb.

The popular leader of the resistance movement also blasted the so-called reconciliation talks between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and acting Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas which was held in Washington on Thursday.

Nasrallah described the US-sponsored talks as stupid and pointless, insisting that its only aim was to strengthen Israel and not to revive Palestinians' rights.

The Shia leader also condemned a bomb blast in Pakistan targeting a Quds Day rally against to the continued occupation of Palestinian land by the Israeli regime that left 53 people dead and scores of others injured.

The late founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini, in August 1979 declared the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan as al-Quds Day, calling for international rallies in support of Palestinians and against Israel.

Millions of people around the world have marked the international day in solidarity with Palestinian people.
