Stop building steel wall, Nasrallah tells Egypt

Press TV

"Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has called on the Egyptian government to halt the construction of a huge steel wall along its border with the besieged Gaza Strip meant to cut supply tunnels.

"In addition to the siege, there has been news about [building] a steel wall ... to terminate the thin veins which are giving some life and some hope to Gaza," Nasrallah said in an address to thousands of people in Beirut on Sunday as part of ceremonies for Ashura, which is the anniversary of the martyrdom of the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Imam Hussein (PBUH).

"We call on the government in Egypt and the leadership to stop the wall and the flooding of the tunnels and to end the siege. Otherwise, it should be condemned by all Arabs and Muslims," he stated.

The Hezbollah leader also criticized most of the members of the international community for their deafening silence over the siege of the Gaza Strip........"
