RNA – The Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah, touched upon different issues on the anniversary of the historic victory over the Israeli regime back in 2000.
“The spirit which triumphed in 2000 is still alive, we believe in Resistance fighters and in our people,” al-Manar quoted him as saying in an interview with Al-Nour radio station on Tuesday.
“Throughout years we have developed our military capabilities, we are engaged in a war of minds,” he said.
Israeli DM had a huge record of failure in south Lebanon during the occupation of Lebanon, Nasrallah added.
The Resistance has created a balance of deterrence with the Zionist entity, and the enemy believes in this, he said.
“‘Israel’ has been since 1982 plotting against Jordan, and today the scheme is represented by the so-called ‘deal of the Century,” said the chief of Hezbollah, adding that ‘Israel’ aims to occupy entire Palestine and according to this scheme, Jordan is an alternative home for the Palestinian people.
Noting that ‘Israel’ is a racist entity and not a religious state, he said “I look forward to the day when Israelis will go back to the countries they had come from, it’s just a matter of time.”
“The direct US military presence in the region indicates weakness of its allies, and strength of the Axis of Resistance,” he noted.
“‘Israel’ knows very well that any aggression on Lebanon won’t go unanswered since it believes in rules of engagement set following 2006 July War,” he said, adding that level of support by Palestinian people to the choice of Resistance is higher than before.
Some foreign-backed militant groups in Syria had relations with the Zionist entity, Nasrallah added, noting that the regime directly interfered in Syria after failure of the foreign-backed militant groups there.
The equation today is that we retaliate to any attack on our fighters everywhere, he said.
Changing the tasks of UNIFIL in south Lebanon is an Israeli demand adopted by the US administration, he said.
Imam Sayyid Musa al-Sadr said one day that the political sides who are ruling the country are ready to ignite a civil war, and this issue is of great concern to Hezbollah, Sayyid Nasrallah noted, adding that “We neither want a civil war nor want to rule the country.”
On the regional level, Sayyid Nasrallah assured that the US withdrawal from the region will be on all political, cultural, and military levels.
He considered that the US is on its way to pack and leave the region due to several reasons including the public desire in Iraq, their withdrawal from Afghanistan, their identification as “occupation forces” in Syria, the failed war on Yemen, the unsuccessful “Deal of the Century” which was signed by only one part of the agreement, and the developments in general.
Sayyid Nasrallah ruled out any war between the US and Iran or between Israel and Lebanon “unless the former decided to make a stupid act,” he said. He finally noted that Israel might cease to exist if the circumstances that it emerged on changed.
