The Lebanese official said that the Israel and the US want to weaken the ‘Axis of Resistance’ by putting Tehran and Damascus on the defensive.
“The [US] must understand that war on Iran and Syria will not remain [restricted] in these two countries but will spread to other countries in the region. We are not issuing any threats but this is the reality,” he added on Friday.
Noting that Iran is not afraid of the US naval fleet, Nasrallah said that threats and naval fleets cannot weaken the determination of the Iranian people.
Addressing a crowd on ‘Martyr’s Day’ event which is held on 11/11 every year, Nasrallah said that the United States has failed in Iraq and has been forced to withdraw its troops from the country.
As a result, he said, “it wants to punish the states that opposed its occupation of the region. The US wants to punish Iran and Syria and intends to keep them under pressure.”
Turning to recent developments in the Middle East and North Africa, the Hezbollah secretary-general said that the regime changes in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt have not been in the interest of the US and Israel and this is another reason why they want to punish Syria and Iran.
“The era of weakness and [submission] to the US or Israel is over. We have entered the era of victories,” he emphasized.
On November 11, 1982, Lebanese resistance fighter Ahmad Qassir attacked an Israeli military headquarters in the southern Lebanese city of Tyre, killing scores of Israeli soldiers and intelligence officers.
Hezbollah honors the memory of martyred resistance fighters who sacrificed their lives for Lebanon every year.
