Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who is in Lebanon on an official visit, congratulated the Lebanese nation and government on the anniversary of the victory in the 2006 war against the ‘Israeli’ regime.

In separate messages to his Lebanese counterpart Charbel Wehbe and Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Zarif hailed the 14th anniversary of Lebanon’s victory in the 33-day war against the Zionist regime.

Zarif congratulated the Lebanese government and nation on such a glorious victory for the resistance.

The Iranian diplomat travelled to Lebanon for a series of meetings following the recent tragic blast that killed more than 200 people in Beirut.

In 2000 and 2006, the 'Israeli' regime launched two wars on Lebanon. About 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians, were killed in the 33-Day War of 2006.

On both occasions, however, Hezbollah fighters defeated the 'Israeli' forces and Tel Aviv was forced to retreat without achieving any of its objectives.

The July 2006 War took place in Lebanon, northern parts of Occupied Palestine and the Golan Heights.

It started in July 2006, and continued until a United Nations-brokered ceasefire went into effect in the morning on August 14 that year, though it formally ended on September 8 when ‘Israel’ lifted its naval blockade of Lebanon.
