Resistance Has Become Stronger in All Areas, Hezbollah Chief Says

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The secretary-general of the Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah said that the resistance has become stronger in all areas, including its military power and devotion.

“There are no ceilings to this resistance,” Seyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Wednesday during an interview with Lebanon’s al-Manar television network, affirming that “the resistance’s supporters have grown larger in number.”  

He also described the Zionist entity as a “temporary regime” whose termination is only a matter of time.

 “The Zionist regime (of Israel) is moribund,” Nasrallah said

The Hezbollah chief said he endorsed a campaign across the cyberspace that has proposed that the occupying regime be called a “temporary regime.”

Nasrallah also asserted that Hezbollah “was completely prepared for battle,” adding, “If the Israeli enemy happens to impose a war on Lebanon, it will (then) get to witness our bravery.”

Lebanon fought off two Israeli wars in 2000 and 2006. On both occasions, battleground contribution by Hezbollah proved an indispensable asset, forcing the Israeli military into a retreat.

“When you choose silence and surrender your weapons, it is as if you are telling the enemy that ‘I am wretched and weak.’ (This is while) the enemy is arrogant and will render you weaker,” Nasrallah said.

The remarks came less than a week after a senior Hezbollah official said the Lebanese resistance movement was sure to emerge victorious from any war, citing the group’s achievements, including its recent successful flying of a drone over the Israeli-occupied territories.

Hezbollah is strong and is capable of winning any type of warfare, Sayed Hashem Safieddine, head of the movement’s Executive Council, said on Saturday.

A day earlier, the group had reported a successful flyover of the UAV inside the depths of the occupied territories and returning the aircraft safely to Lebanon.

Before returning, the aircraft roamed over its "targeted area for 40 minutes on a reconnaissance mission, which extended along 70 kilometers," Hezbollah announced in a statement on Friday.
