Hezbollah lashed out at US over rolling out fresh sanctions on Iranian foundations including Astan Quds Razavi which runs the Imam Reza holy shrine in Mashhad.
“It seems that US Secretary of state’s level of madness and hatred have been considerably increasing as the presidential term (of Donald Trump) is coming to an end,” Hezbollah’s Media Relation Office said in a statement on Saturday.
“Blacklisting and imposing sanctions on Astan Quds Razavi and its custodian Sheikh Ahmad Marvi is an unprecedented move. This site is a holy place that has been for years a destination for millions of pilgrims from all over the world.”
“This foolish act is a desecration to Islam as well as to spiritual principles,” Hezbollah said in the statement.
“It (the move) surpasses all political differences and amounts to clear announcement of enmity towards to religious beliefs. It also represents the moral collapse of the US administration.”
Sanctions on Hashd Shaabi’s Chief of Staff
Meanwhile, Hezbollah stressed that the US campaign against Iraq’s Hashd Shaabi paramilitary force has been uncovered.
The Lebanese Resistance movement denounced US sanctions imposed against the Hashd’s Chief of Staff Abdulaziz Al-Muhammadawi (Abu Fadak).
Hezbollah praised Abu Fadak, stressing that he has a long history of Jihad and counter-terrorism.
“This campaign is part of US’s efforts to punish the Hashd Shaabi for its role in defending Iraq and fighting ISIL terrorist group,” Hezbollah said in the statement.
