RNA – In an interview with Rasa News Agency, Shaykh Khidhr al-Kabsh, a member of the Lebanon Renaissance Foundation, said that the designation of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization by the United States is part of a devastating project to divide the countries of the region which Washington is seeking to implement based on sectarian issues.
The Lebanese Sunni cleric added, “The United States has already placed Hezbollah on its list of terrorist organizations and the purpose of such acts is to harm the Islamic Resistance Axis which Iran and Syria support.”
He said, “The actions by the United States’ against the IRGC, sending terrorists to Syria and Iraq and announcing Jerusalem (al-Quds) as the capital of the Zionist regime are all issues that are to the benefit of the Zionist regime but the Islamic Resistance will continue to take steps on its path to realize all of its goals.”
Shaykh al-Kabsh stated, “The IRGC is the heart of the Islamic Resistance Movement in the region and the national and religious duty of these movements is to stand with the IRGC and support it against American actions. These movements will stand against Washington’s efforts for Israel to annex the Golan Heights and won’t allow another leverage of pressure to be formed against the Islamic Resistance.”
The member of the Association of Muslim Scholars of Lebanon stressed that the United States fails to comply with international and legal laws with its actions toward the IRGC, the Golan Heights and the Islamic Resistance and said, “The two-fold policy of the United States towards the oppressed peoples of the region and their blind support for Zionist aggression against the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian territories are all in line with the White House officials’ disregard for international and legal laws.”
Shaykh al-Kabsh said, “The United States can’t put the Islamic Resistance in a stranglehold by designating it as a terrorist organization and such actions will only add to the determination and will of the Islamic Resistance, just as in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and other countries of the region. How did this axis achieve victories and expell terrorist groups from the Islamic lands in the face of Washington-sponsored global terrorism? Therefore, the United States and the Zionist regime know that by taking action against the Islamic Resistance Axis, they are on the path toward their own destruction.”
