According to the report, Jawad responded to the allegations by confessing to owning another US-brand product, saying "All those who wrote against me – I don't attack back. I don't buy American products, even my iPhone I plan to sell." Twitter profile has been suspended.In a speech on Monday, the leader of the terrorist group called for forming a “united resistance front” against the US across the globe and urged an economic boycott against American products as a “new weapon” of confrontation by the group, since America’s “point of weakness is its economy.”He continued at length to point out the importance of the boycott for Hezbollah's fight against America, likening it to the importance that Israel places on the loss of human lives. “The Israeli enemy has a major weakness, which is human losses,” he was quoted by al-Manar as saying. “Similarly, the Americans have their economic and financial situation as a point of fragility.
