In separate messages to Hezbollah Secretary General Seyed Hassan Nasrallah and Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam on Thursday, Jahangiri hailed the 16th anniversary of the Lebanese Liberation Day as “the celebration of resistance and the heroic victory of the brave people and government of Lebanon” against the Zionist regime of Israel.
“…Undoubtedly, all courageous and freedom-seeking nations of the world will never forget your nation’s victory,” the Iranian first vice-president noted.

Lebanon on Wednesday commemorated the 16th anniversary of the Israeli withdrawal from the country, known as Resistance and Liberation Day.
Hezbollah forced the Israeli military out of the southern parts of Lebanon on May 25, 2000, after more than two decades of occupation.
People in Lebanon consider May 25 as a beginning of dramatic change in the region.
The Lebanese commemorate the day as a national holiday and see it as a transformation that changed the regional equations for good, and put an end to the invincibility myth of the Israeli military.
