Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah says the United States and its allies will not allow the Syrian opposition to enter dialogue with the Syrian government.

"Dialogue is prohibited in Syria because the Americans, the West, and Israel are not allowing the Syrian opposition to engage in dialogue,” said Nasrallah during a fast-breaking ceremony south of Beirut on Monday, Aug 6.

He reiterated that Hezbollah, Iran, and Russia have stressed that the fighting must end and the two sides should start negotiations without preconditions. The West is seeking the destruction of Syria, Nasrallah went on to say.

The Hezbollah leader, meanwhile, condemned a violent attack on an Egyptian border post in the Sinai Peninsula, which claimed the lives of 16 Egyptian border security guards.

Unknown gunmen caused the fatalities, attacking the guards at a checkpoint in the vicinity of the Karm Abu Salem border crossing near the Sinai border with the Occupied Territories on Sunday, Aug 5.

"I send my condolences to Egypt's president, the Egyptian Army, and the families of the martyr officers and soldiers," the Hezbollah secretary-general added. Nasrallah called the attack a suspicious incident that Israel would benefit from most.

"Every Muslim rejects this approach of killings, which threatens our societies the most. Israel and the Takfiri trend are the main things that threaten security and stability in the region,” he maintained.

The Hezbollah leader hailed the Lebanese nation's resistance against Israel, saying the resistance is the regime's main source of fear. "For Israel, the resistance is considered the main threat to its interests,” he concluded.
