DUBAI - Bahrain's foreign minister has called the head of Lebanese guerrilla group Hezbollah a "terrorist" after Hassan Nasrallah said his fighters would help bring victory to its ally President Bashar Assad in Syria's civil war.

The comments represent a departure from the traditional Arab view of Hezbollah as a main force against Israel and show the widening sectarian divisions in the region over the war in Syria.

"Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmed al-Khalifa, said that Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah is a terrorist and is declaring war on his own nation," the Bahrian News Agency reported, quoting the minister's twitter account.

"Stopping (Nasrallah) and saving Lebanon from him is a national and religious duty," he added, according to BNA.
