RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Ayatollah Sayyid Mojtaba Hoseyni, the representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] in Iraq, referred to Hezbollah’s response to the drone attack carried out by on Lebanon and said, “The Zionist regime has an arrogant nature and always stands in opposition to Islam and for this reason, we are all obliged to stand against it.”
Emphasizing that Ashura teaches us the lesson of resistance against oppression, His Eminence said, “By heeding the message of the tragedy of Karbala, we find that we must never be silent against their arrogant and oppressive nature.”
Ayatollah Hoseyni pointed to the decisive and powerful positions of the Supreme Leader against the arrogant powers and said, “He has repeatedly said that we stand against the arrogant powers and oppressors of the world and we won’t negotiate with them. Therefore, Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah [the secretary-general of Hezbollah], who considers himself as subordinate to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, has never submitted to the oppression of the Zionists and stands against their bullying.”
While announcing his support for Hezbollah’s actions, His Eminence emphasized, “We all support Hezbollah and stand with them in full unity against our enemies.”
He noted that the truthful words, positions and promises of Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah have struck fear and horror into the hearts of the Zionists, and added, “Today, the Zionists are fully aware of Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah’s honesty and given their past experiences in the 33-Day War and other confrontations with Hezbollah, they know that Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah is fulfilling his promises. For this reason, they are very afraid of a response to their drone attack.”
Ayatollah Hoseyni pointed to Hezbollah’s past successes and said, “Today everyone knows that Hezbollah has stood firm in its pursuit of its goals and will continue on its path until the Zionist usurper regime is overthrown and will resist and won’t surrender.”
Hezbollah said its air defence forces shot down an Israeli military drone outside the southern town of Ramyah on September 9th as it crossed over the border between Lebanon and the occupied Palestinian lands.
