Hezbollah Leader Promises Victory in Syria

The leader of the Lebanese Shia militant Hezbollah movement, Hassan Nasrallah, has promised his supporters they will prevail in Syria, where they are backing President Bashar al-Assad.

"This battle is ours... and I promise you victory," he said in a TV address.

Syrian rebels in the besieged town of Qusair say they are under heavy bombardment from Hezbollah combatants.

The town is close to the Lebanese border, a conduit for both the government and rebels to get weapons.

    God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Hezbollah. They will surrender or be burned in their tanks. We're giving them a real lesson today. Heavy doesn't accurately describe the level of casualties we have inflicted. I can say, and I am responsible for what I am saying, that they have started to commit suicide under the walls of Qusair. We will encourage them to commit more suicides quickly.
