Iran to Discuss Israel’s Recent Attack on Hezbollah in OIC Meetings
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said he would raise the issue of Israel’s recent attack on members of the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement in his upcoming talks with the parliamentary speakers of a number of Islamic countries in Turkey.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Larijani pointed to issues to be discussed in his upcoming visit to Turkey, during which he will attend the tenth conference of the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States (PUIC) due to be held from January 20 to 22.
This conference provides an opportunity to hold talks with other countries’ parliament speakers over various regional issues, including Israel’s recent attack against resistance movement in Syria, he said.
A military helicopter gunship operated by the Israeli army fired two missiles into Amal Farms in the strategic southwestern city of Quneitra, situated some 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of the Syrian capital, Damascus, on Sunday.
Later, Hezbollah announced that Jihad Mughniyeh, the son of Hezbollah's slain top military commander, Imad Mughniyeh, and a field commander were killed in the attack.
Meanwhile, Iran cofirmed that an IRGC commander was also killed in the operation.
Hezbollah has been involved in the Syrian government's battle against the ISIL terrorists since 2012, in an effort to prevent violence spillover into Lebanon.
The Tel Aviv regime has carried out several airstrikes in Syria since the start of the nearly four-year-old foreign-backed militancy there. The Zionist regime is also blamed for backing the insurgents fighting against the Syrian government.
