Tehran, Iran, Aug. 01 – A senior Iranian cleric called on Muslim nations on Tuesday to provide arms to the Lebanese militia Hezbollah which has been in intense battle with Israel for the past three weeks.

“At present, it is expected of Muslim states to not hold back any support, in particular military, medical, and food aid, to Hezbollah and the Lebanese people”, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, the head of the powerful Guardians Council, told the state-run news agency ISNA.

Jannati said that it was the religious duty of all Muslims to give political and financial aid to Hezbollah and spread the group’s cause.

“Hassan Nasrollah has currently become the man of the century”, Jannati said of the Lebanese militia’s leader.

The United States accuses Iran and Syria of providing money and arms to Hezbollah.
