Lebanese journalist Pierre Abi Saab said on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah-Lebanon) on November 30, 2021 that the American Embassy in Lebanon is a military base and that they are turning it into a fortress. He said that this would not help the Americans and that they will leave Lebanon horizontally like they left Vietnam, as Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said.

Pierre Abi Saab: "The [American] embassy in Awkar is a military base. Technically, it is not called a base, but... They are building it while they are dismantling their missiles in the Gulf..."

Interviewer: "The pictures of the building that were circulated were shocking."

Abi Saab: "Like Sayyed [Nasrallah] said, this is the way they will leave...


"They will leave [Lebanon] horizontally. This is certain. Just like they left Vietnam. Building military bases and fortresses will not help them. When you rob people of what is rightly theirs, and when you constitute a colonialist force, a time comes up when you up and leave."
