Sayyed Nasrallah: Israel dreads defeat of Daesh in Syria
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the secretary general of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah, says the Israeli regime dreads the defeat of the Daesh Takfiri terrorists in Syria.
The Tel Aviv regime has been “exposed to an existential threat,” Nasrallah said, adding that Israel also fears demonstrations in some Arab capitals.
Daesh and the al-Nusra Front terrorist group follow the same ideology of Wahabism, he said.
Syria says Israel and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups operating inside the Arab country.
The Syrian army has repeatedly seized huge quantities of Israeli-made weapons and advanced military equipment from the foreign-backed militants.
Late last year, British media released footage showing Israeli forces treating a wounded Takfiri terrorist in the occupied Golan Heights.
The Israeli regime has saved over 2,000 Takfiri militants at the cost of about USD 13 million over the past three years, added the report of British newspaper Daily Mail published in December 2015.
Nasrallah made the remarks during a televised speech on the occasion of the International Quds Day.
The late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, named the last Friday of the lunar fasting month of Ramadan as the International Quds Day.
The Hezbollah chief said the Quds Day is marked in the countries whose nations oppose the Saudi regime.
On Friday, as each year, millions of people around the world staged rallies to voice their support for the Palestinians and repeat their call for an end to the Tel Aviv regime’s atrocities and its occupation of the Palestinian territories.
‘Palestinians are not alone’
Muslims, Nasrallah highlighted, will not abandon the Palestinians despite efforts by enemies to undermine the Palestinian cause.
“On this day we ask everyone not to abandon the Palestinian cause,” he said.
Iran, Syria and Hezbollah form the backbone of resistance in the region, Nasrallah added.
