US Senator: Hezbollah is an invasive cancer that must be defeated

Senator Richard Blumenthal of the Democratic Party in the United States of America stated that “Hezbollah” is an invasive cancer that must be defeated, and that Lebanon should not rely on Iran to solve its problems, particularly the fuel ship.

“The United States is the greatest sponsor of the Lebanese Army, and we will communicate to Washington proposals to assist the Army’s training at the frontiers and support it with monthly pensions,” he said in an interview with An-Nahar.

This comes as Lebanon’s Minister of Energy and Water, Raymond Ghajar, stated that he had not received a request to import Iranian gasoline, despite Hezbollah’s statement that Tehran had delivered three cargoes of fuel to the nation to assist it in overcoming its problem.

The Lebanese presidency recently claimed that the US has proposed a plan to assist Beirut in “drawing electrical energy from Jordan via Syria and Egyptian gas.”
