Nasrallah: Axis of Resistance Will Certainly Defeat Enemies' Plots in Region
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Secretary General of the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement Seyed Hassan Nasrallah reiterated that the axis of resistance will defeat the plots hatched by enemies to spread sectarian and ethnic conflicts in the region.
During a festival marking Resistance and Liberation Day in Bint Jbeil, southern Lebanon, Seyed Nasrallah pointed to the movement’s intensified military readiness to encounter the Israeli aggressions.
He also reiterated that May 25 victory has glorious and historical meanings and indications, including mainly the fall of the 'Greater Israel' project, Al-Manar reported.
"The repercussions of the victory still exist in Lebanon, Palestine, the Zionist entity and the region," he added.
"Without May 25 victory, we would not have witnessed victories which followed as it the paved the way to their occurrence."
Seyed Nasrallah emphasized that May 25 victory is a Lebanese, Arab, and national event, adding that no one can reduce it so that it becomes partisan or sectarian.
"It is the nation's victory against the Zionist project."
Seyed Nasrallah praised and glorified the enormous sacrifices of the Lebanese offered their families, money as well as security and those of all the factions of the resistance as well as the Lebanese army.
Seyed Nasrallah also appreciated the role of the Syrian army and the Palestinian factions in attaining the victory.
"We have to foster the culture of the hope for the future and the trust in God, victory, and in our people," Seyed Nasrallah said. "This culture, will and intention enabled us to attain all the victories, including May 2000, withdrawal of Israeli occupation troops from Gaza in 2005, 2006 victory, 2008 Gaza immovability against Israeli aggressions, despite the Israeli military power and superiority."
Commenting on the moral and cultural essence of Hezbollah 2000 victory, Seyed Nasrallah considered that the party presented a great Islamic sample, different from that displayed by the terrorist groups in Syria.
"Unfortunately, today they are consolidating the idea of linking Islam to murdering, slaughtering, digging tombs, destroying shrines, and issuing death sentences due to political differences. This linkage is a crime against Islam and betrayal.”
"Thousands of Hezbollah fighters in 2000 entered the liberated territories where different sects as well as political factions live, and despite the fact that some of the residents there were involved in betrayal in the south and the western Bekaa, all can remember how the souls and the worship places were saved," he said, adding, "This is the Islamic resistance sample of tolerance which is derived from the teachings of Islam."
Hezbollah leader highlighted that the party sticks to the Resistance-Army-People golden formula and that despite the regional developments the resistance has preserved and improved its deterrence power, what concerns the Israeli enemy.
Seyed Nasrallah said that due to the Israeli military superiority, the government has to adopt this strategy to protect the country against any possible Israeli aggressions, pointing out the importance of the role of the Lebanese army.
He added that the Israeli violations at the Lebanese-Palestinian borders have been escalated and that they show the Israeli annoyance and fear of the Lebanese daily life activities at the borders.
Seyed Nasrallah asserted that Hezbollah will not prevent the Israeli enemy from consecrating the violations and that the party will not accept any Zionist aggression against the Lebanese citizens at the borders.
Hezbollah Secretary General stressed that the events in the last year in Syria prove the propriety of its stances regarding the crisis.
"Hezbollah supports the Syria for its role in standing by the Lebanese and the Palestinian resistance factions against the Zionist project in the region, wondering how the party cannot defend its strengths while the Zionist settlers come from all over the world to occupy Palestine for the sake of their myths.
The Western project is completely exposed as it aims at dividing Syria militant parts (each part refers to a militant group), pointing that those countries have brought the terrorists from all over the world and provided them with all the political and financial support so that they (terrorists) destroy Syria and the axis of resistance that threaten the Zionist entity.
"The West employed these terrorists to threaten Syria, yet it discovered that Syria and the resistance have not fallen and that these groups have started to pose a great danger which threatens the European security."
Seyed Nasrallah added that the Israeli role in Syria have been also exposed as the entity has political connections with the opposition figures and provides the terrorist groups with logistic and military support.
He also pointed out that the terrorist groups in Syria, which pose a grave danger to the regional countries, are trying to ban the Syrians from participating in the presidential elections.
Hezbollah leader, however, asserted that the battlefield achievement of the Syrian army and its allies will completely defeat the terrorist project.
Seyed Nasrallah considered that the war against Syria is a new version of 2006 war against the axis of resistance in the context of the "New Middle East" project, asserting that Syria as well as its allies will defeat this project and will not let it survive.
There will be a time when everyone, including the countries which backed the terrorist groups, will thank Syria for its steadfastness that protected the region and the world from the terrorist atrocities.
As regards latest political developments in Lebanon, Hezbollah secretary general announced that the party endorses electing a new president soon and called on all the Lebanese political factions to facilitate the democratic process and to preserve the national security.
Seyed Nasrallah revealed that March 14 challenge candidacy aimed at preventing any serious candidate from running for the elections, accusing the team of trying to extend the term of president Michel Sleiman.
Seyed Nasrallah also said that there is still a chance to elect a new president, adding that Hezbollah does not require a president who defends the resistance, yet a president who does not back stabs it or conspires against it.
"Hezbollah defends the people, the state and the whole country," he affirmed.
"Hezbollah trusts its capabilities and will always encounter all challenges in order to keep victorious, despite the Israeli threats," Seyed Nasrallah concluded.
