The leader of Hezbollah, in a rare public admission, has boasted that due to Iran’s generous support, new U.S. sanctions targeting his group – a U.S.- designated foreign terrorist organization – will have no impact.
Nasrallah also admitted his group’s close connections with Iran, denying reports that Hezbollah was low on funds due to sanctions that have been imposed on it by the United States and others.
He said: “We are open about the fact that Hezbollah’s budget, its income, its expenses, everything it eats and drinks, its weapons and rockets, are from the Islamic Republic of Iran,”.
“As long as Iran has money we will have money,” Nasrallah added. “Hezbollah gets its money and arms from Iran, as long as Iran has money, so does Hezbollah.”
