Sayyed Nasrallah hails slain Hezbollah commander
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah hails the movement’s slain military commander Mustafa Badreddine at the hands of Takfiri groups in Syria last month.
In a speech to mark 40 days since the killing of the commander, Sayyed Nasrallah hailed him as a “strong and courageous commander” who never gave up defending the cause of the Lebanese resistance movement.
He said Badreddine believed Hezbollah had a big role to play in Syria and Iraq in defending the countries against the Takfiri militants.
The 55-year-old Hezbollah commander led Hezbollah’s military wing, which is helping the Syrian government drive out foreign-backed Takfiri terrorists from Syria.
The Hezbollah leader added the Badreddine was involved in all phases of the conflict in Syria almost from the onset of the foreign-backed militancy in the Arab country in 2011.
“Turkey and Saudi Arabia, which have brought thousands of militants to Syria in the past months, have failed in their plan to topple the Syrian government,” Nasrallah pointed out.
He also referred to Arab media reports that Hezbollah fighters were about to be defeated in the Syrian city of Aleppo as “lies”.
