National Syrian Coalition ( NSC) chief Ahmed Jarba said that Hezbollah Secretary-General of Hassan Nasrallah “has become the real enemy of the Syrians, and his popularity is over and one of the achievements of our revolution was exposing him and Hezbollah in the region, adding: “There is no one in Lebanon that is trying to broker a peaceful settlement in Syria. “
In an interview with Al Hayat newspaper Jarba said the regime of Bashar al-Assad is allied with Iran, Russia and Israel, and its relationship with the U.S. is not bad, adding our ultimate goal is not to direct Assad away from the Russians and Iranian and in the direction of the U.S., but his “downfall and the elimination of his regime”
In response to a question about the number of Iranian people killed in Syria he said that more than a hundred , and estimated that there are 30 detainees from Hezbollah, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and the Yemeni Houthis.
In response to a question about the Egyptian media incitement against Syrian refugees, Jarba said that he had received a promise to resolve all the problems the refugees face in Egypt, and added: “Egypt is living an exceptional situation , and our goal is Egypt’s safety, and I’m going to pay a second visit to discuss the situation of the refugees with the officials in Cairo.”
Jarba appealed to the Arab leaders, especially the Gulf countries to support the coalition and the Free Syrian Army and to provide urgently the aid needed, and said: “Syria is today the battle of the Arab nation and you should back the coalition and the opposition to the end , because the support of Iran and Russia is continuous and scary …adding ” you must bear the responsibilities for the sake of the defense of bilad el Sham ( the Syrian nation) . ”
“I will personally go to Syria if it is necessary in the battle against the Takfiris (radical Sunni Muslims), Hezbollah and I will go to Syria” to fight the rebels trying to oust the Damascus regime, Hezbollah chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah said in a defiant speech last Friday, accusing the Takfiris of being behind the deadly blast.
Takfiris in both Sunni and Shiite sects consider people who do not share their religious views as infidels.
