Iranian Lawmakers Vow Support for Hizbullah
Iranian lawmakers had reiterated their support for the Lebanese resistance movement Hizbullah in its campaign against the "Israeli" apartheid regime and Takfiri terrorists in the region.
In a letter to Hizbullah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Monday, some 251 Iranian parliamentarians expressed their condolences over the assassination of Hizbullah's military chief Mustafa Badr al-din during his anti-terrorism mission in Syria.
The Iranian lawmakers praised Hizbullah for its "simultaneous fight against the occupying Zionists ["Israelis"] and Takfiri terrorist groups."
On Friday, Hizbullah announced that Badr al-din was martyred in a strike near Syria's international airport in Damascus, and held a military funeral for the senior commander in Beirut.
In its statement on Saturday, Hizbullah said investigations showed that Badr al-din was killed by Takfiri terrorist groups operating against the Syrian government.
Meanwhile, in a message to an international conference held in Tehran on the 68th anniversary of Palestine's Nakba Day, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the "Israeli" apartheid regime is still the main threat to the region and the "Israeli" entity is widely known to have been supporting terrorists fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Badr al-din directed military operations against the "Israeli" invasion of Lebanon and was a frequent target of attempts by the "Israeli" regime, the US and its allies in the Middle East to assassinate or capture him.
A number of Iranian officials including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan as well as Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, had in separate messages expressed their condolences to Sayyed Nasrallah.
