The first goal was to crush the Resistance, Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding that the Israelis wanted Syria to be next.
"If the resistance was to be crushed, the war was aimed then at Syria on the pretext that Syria helped the resistance. The second goal was to overthrow the Assad regime and subject it to the American-Israeli scheme."
“They sought after the July war to destroy the Syrian army and the U.S. took advantage of rightful demands of the Syrian people, prevented dialogue and turned Syria into a war zone because the objective is destroying and fragmenting Syria, like they did in Iraq,”
Turning to Syria’s big role in the resistance, the secretary general assured the Americans’ problem is Syria, but not any Syria. “The Syria of Abdul Halim Khaddam is not a problem, but rather the Syria of Bashar Assad.”
"Syria is a big problem for the Americans and Israelis because Syria is the real supporter for the resistance and especially at the military level. Syria was not only a passageway for the Resistance, but also a real military supporter of the Resistance. For example, the most important missiles that fell on Haifa and central Israel were Syrian-made missiles," Sayyed Nasrallah said.
"The most important weapons we fought with during the July war were from Syria, not only in Lebanon but also in the Gaza Strip. The missiles delivered to Gaza managed to force more than a million settlers to stay in bunkers and frightened Tel Aviv. When the Arab regimes were barring bread and money from entering Gaza, Syria was sending weapons along with food for Gaza and risked for that."
"This is Syria, the Syria of Bashar Assad and martyr Leaders Assef Shawkat, Dawoud Rajiha and Hassan Turkmani,"
"We reiterate our call for preserving Syria and the only solution is accepting dialogue. As we feel the loss of today’s martyrs, we extend our condolences to their families and to the Syrian leadership. These martyr leaders were comrades-in-arms in the conflict with the Israeli enemy and we are confident that the Arab Syrian Army, which overcame the unbearable, will be able persist and crush the hopes of the enemies."
