By Staff, Agencies
The head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council, His Eminence Sayyed Hashem Safieddine, said he liberation of al-Quds [Jerusalem] from “Israeli” occupation tops the agenda of the regional resistance front, and that the Lebanese Resistance movement is fully prepared for any type of confrontation with the regime in Tel Aviv in line with that objective.
Sayyed Safieddine said during an interview with al-Mayadeen television channel on Tuesday that what has changed since May 2000 until today is that the Resistance has increased in strength, knowledge and solidity, and the resistance has increased progress and realization of the great achievements at the regional level.
“We are perfectly ready to confront any act of aggression or instance of folly that the Zionist regime could commit,” His Eminence said.
“The Resistance movement is currently assured and well aware of its approach and choices in the event of such a confrontation with the enemy,” Sayyed Safieddine added.
However, His Eminence noted that Hezbollah is not seeking war and is not working to ignite one.
Sayyed Safieddine further highlighted a string of defeats the “Israeli” entity has suffered in the face of the regional resistance front over the past years, including in the wars the regime waged against Lebanon in 2000 and 2006.
“The [‘Israeli’] army, which had been described as invincible, was subdued and suffered defeat,” His Eminence said.
The “Israeli” entity is currently caught in a “tight spot” as it has fallen short of answering questions that have to do with military affairs, Sayyed Safieddine said.
His Eminence further added the main goal of the regional resistance front is to secure the liberation of al-Quds [Jerusalem] from “Israeli” occupation, and that all have a “duty” to prepare for a confrontation with the Zionist regime to realize that objective.
Sayyed Safieddine also pointed to the upcoming International al-Quds Day, emphasizing the importance of commemorating the “precious” occasion.
Every year, millions of Muslims and supporters of the Palestinian cause mark the occasion across the world on the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan to underscore the plight of Palestinians, heeding a call by the late founder of the Islamic Republic, His Eminence Imam Khomeini.
