Hezbollah: US has no ally but Israel

Beirut, Lebanese Hezbollah in two separate statements slammed US policies against Palestinians and international bodies, saying Washington has no friend and ally but the Zionist regime of Israel.

In its statement, Hezbollah referred to US hostile approach against Palestinians like relocating its embassy from Tel Aviv to Holy Quds, cutting financial aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and putting pressure on Palestinians, saying that US administration continues its hostility with Palestine by taking advantage of any dirty tool.

Hezbollah described US act as aiming to boost pressure on Palestinians and to force them retreat.

The US cutting of financial assistance to Palestinian refugees confirms the fact that its previous so-called humanitarian aid just aimed to take political and colonial advantage, Hezbollah added.

Meanwhile, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in a statement said cutting the $200m aid to Palestinians is an indication of US political and moral frustration.

'The United States is cutting more than $200 million in aid to the Palestinians,' Reuters reported on Friday, quoting a US State Department statement as saying.

Hezbollah also urged world countries to be aware of US wicked and deceitful role.

In another statement, Hezbollah criticized position taken by John R. Bolton, US National Security Advisor against International Criminal Court in The Hague.

In his recent remarks, Bolton claimed that US constitutional law is superior to all international and legal organizations.

Bolton's remarks show that international laws and community are nothing but a rhetoric for the benefit of the United States, and that the country uses it as a tool for colonial and dominant purposes, Hezbollah reiterated.
