Lebanese nation, Hezbollah proved possibility of defeating Israel to world: Zarif
Tehran (KNA) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has congratulated Lebanon on the anniversary of the victory of the country in a 2006 war waged by Israel, stating that the Lebanese nation and Hezbollah resistance movement dispelled the myth of the Tel Aviv regime’s “invincibility.”
“The Lebanese people and the Islamic resistance front proved to the world the fact that the Zionist regime (of Israel) can be defeated. The regime, no matter how hard it tries, cannot wage wars, stoke tensions and cause bloodshed of the people of the region,” Zarif said in an exclusive interview with Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Ahed news website on Tuesday.
“This was a triumph for the entire (Middle East) region, international rights and international relations. The peoples of the region and the world are indebted to the resistance of the Lebanese people, the Islamic resistance front and Hezbollah, which stood against the arrogance of the Zionist regime and faced the terrorism of Daesh Takfiri group, which was a scourge for the whole world,” the top Iranian diplomat pointed out.
On Sunday, the head of the parliamentary bloc of Hezbollah said his group will teach the Israeli regime a lesson in case it launches a new act of military aggression against Lebanon.
“The Israeli enemy is preparing to wage a war against us but the resistance is ready to face it with our men, society and capacity,” Mohammad Raad said during a ceremony in Lebanon’s southern village of Harouf.
