Lebanon exists on the map today thanks to the resistance, which is supported by Iran, Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary-General of Hezbollah, said on January 3.
The Hezbollah leader made this statement during a speech commemorating the first anniversary of the assassination of Iran’s Quds Force Commander Qassam Soleimani.
Exactly a year ago, a U.S. drone strike on Baghdad International Airport claimed the lives of the Quds Force commander, Deputy-Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and eight other people.
“Iran is not weak, and it knows very well when and how it will avenge the assassination of its figures,” the Hezbollah leader said.
Nasrallah stressed that the “Resistance” should stay loyal to the blood of Soleimani and al-Muhandis. The Hezbollah leader added that the “Resistance” became more “firm and stubborn” following the assassination of its leaders.
“Mistaken he who thinks that we can retreat by either sanctions or assassinations,” Nasrallah added.
Earlier today, thousands of people gathered at the Tahrir Square in Iraq’s Baghdad to commemorate the assassination of Soleimani and al-Muhandis. Gatherings and events to remember the two commanders were also held in Iran, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon.
The assassination of Soleimani and al-Muhandis brought members of the Axis of Resistance closer than ever. At the same time, it created new, unprecedented threats to the U.S. and its allies in the Middle East.
