Hezbollah claims it would not use Lebanon ministry funds for own benefit
  • “This is a ministry for all the Lebanese people,” Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech

BEIRUT: The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah said on Monday that it would never use state funds for its benefit and that the new health minister was close to the Iran-backed movement but not a member.
“This is a ministry for all the Lebanese people,” Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech.
The US State Department urged the new Lebanese cabinet last week to ensure resources do not go to Hezbollah, after the group assumed three seats, including naming the health minister.
