Nasrallah thanks Iran for not 'selling out Palestine'

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Tuesday thanked the Iranian regime for its support, saying that Tehran could escape western sanctions if it wanted to, but instead chooses not  to "sell out Palestine."
In a speech delivered via video at a ceremony marking the birth of the prophet of Islam Muhammed, Nasrallah said that Lebanon "could not have been victorious" in the 2006 Second Lebanon War without the help of Iran.
"We have received moral, political and financial support in all means possible from Iran since 1982," Nasrallah stated.
He added, however, that Hezbollah remained independent to act as it sees fit.
