Iran calls on Muslim nations to arm Hezbollah

Iran Focus Tehran, Iran, Aug. 01 – A senior Iranian cleric called on Muslim nations on Tuesday to provide arms to the Lebanese militia Hezbollah which has been in intense battle with Israel for the past three weeks.

“At present, it is expected of Muslim states to not hold back any support, in particular military, medical, and food aid, to Hezbollah and the Lebanese people”, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, the head of the powerful Guardians Council, told the state-run news agency ISNA.
