Hizballah supporters celebrate Liberation DayAdd to Lightbox Download
Supporters of the Shiite resistance and political group, Hizballah, rallied in the Dahiyeh southern suburbs of Beirut to watch a televised speech from Hizballah General Secretary Hassan Nasrallah. The rally was called for by Hizballah to celebrate Land Day, which is the 9th anniversary of Israel's withdrawal from southern Lebanon, which Hizballah and its supporters say was a victory over Israel. The rally comes just 13 days before Lebanese go to the polls to elect a new parliament. With Sunni Muslims and Shia Muslims mostly supporting their respective sectarian parties, Nasrallah praised Christian leader Michel Aoun. Aoun is head of the Free Patriotic Movement, which is allied with the Hizballah-led opposition March 8 coalition. ///Hizballah supporters wave the group's yellow and green flag, along with Lebanese and other flags belonging to different parties in the March 8 alliance.
