Hezbollah calls for Lebanese government to be toppled


The Hezbollah leader has told his followers to prepare for peaceful protests to topple what he describes calls the American government in Lebanon. In a message broadcast by the group’s television network, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, urges people to take to the streets to demand a national unity government or early elections.

But he did not say when Hezbollah would call for such demonstrations. He also said Hezbollah and its allies would be responsible for any riots or trouble in the country if they rejected the planned UN special court to try the killers of former Prime Minister, Rafik al-Hariri. Prime Minister Fouad Siniora’s government was plunged into crisis last week by the resignation of six ministers including five from Hezbollah.
