Hezbollah says a possible US strike on Syria is "direct, organized terrorism” that would threaten the region regardless of the pretext.
“The (parliamentary) bloc considers the US aggression on Syria or the threat to do is direct and organized terrorism and represents a challenge to the region and its people as well as a blatant threat to regional and international peace and security,” the bloc said in a statement following its weekly meeting on Thursday.
The statement said Hezbollah condemned and rejected the attack.
The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted in favor of bombing Syria on Wednesday although a full Congressional debate is expected next week when lawmakers returns from holiday.
“The US administration reached a level of direct involvement in Syria which proves that the crisis in Syria is a conspiracy, part of a strategic project that dreams of power in the region,” the bloc’s statement said.
Tensions rose higher in the region after US rushed to dispatch its warships toward Syria, threatening to bomb several areas in the country, based on conflicting reports of an alleged chemical attack in the country.
The US-backed militants posted pictures and videos of an alleged chemical attack which they claimed the Syrian army was responsible for it.
The Syrian government, which has already called for UN action against several cases of chemical attacks by anti-Syria militants in the country, rejected the claims as baseless and paved the way for visiting UN team of inspectors to investigate the story.
Syria says the attack was actually carried out by the foreign-backed militants to open way for their Western and regional supporters to attack Syria.
Despite killing of at least 100,000 people in the massive insurgency in Syria, the US had said that it would enter the conflict if a chemical attack was carried out.
