During a rare public appearance in Beirut to mark the Shi'ite Ashura holy day, Hezbollah secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah castigated Israel and the United States on Friday.

Nasrallah said that Israel was "a tool of the West" that was acting as a "subcontractor for US hegemony in the Middle East."


"Israel is a tool that is being used by the West to take control of the Middle East region," the Hezbollah leader said during an event that was guarded by heavy security. "That's why the West defends it."
