Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said Thur. that the rapprochement of Arab states to the Syrian government shows that they have been defeated in their war on the country.
According to Al-Manar, Hezbollah marks Martyr’s Day yearly on November eleventh. The day is considered an opportunity to recall the great martyr, Ahmad Kassir, who blew himself up in November 11, 1982, targeting the center of the Israeli military governor in the southern city of Tyre, and killing dozens of Zionist officers and soldiers.
At the start of his speech, Nasrallah hailed the role the martyrs played in the history of Islam and Resistance.
“Hezbollah has selected November 11 as Martyr Day because it refers to the date of the first martyrdom bombing operation carried out by the martyr Ahmad Kassir against the Israeli occupation forces in 1982,” he said.
“Our Islamic values call on us to glorify the martyrs,” he said.
The Hezbollah leader pointed to the visit of officials of Arab states to Damascus and said, “In recent days, it has been reported that the leaders of several Arab countries have contacted Syrian President Bashar al-Assad… An Emirati official traveled to Syria. These are achieved by the martyrs.”
According to Nasrallah, Hezbollah martyrs liberated the prisoners as well as the occupied territories, deterred the enemy’s aggression, prevented the civil war in Lebanon, and defeated the takfiri terror in Syria.
Israeli enemy is periodically carrying out military drills for fear of Hezbollah capabilities, he said, adding that ‘Israel’ is worried about Hezbollah infantry’s ability to invade Galilee and fire precision-guided missiles.
He pointed to the US plots to create unrest in Lebanon and said that Hezbollah has foiled the US attempt to fully dominate Lebanon.
However, he said that Washington has influence over the Lebanese political factions while the country is standing on its feet and is still an independent entity thanks to Hezbollah’s efforts.
Hezbollah will rely on the martyrs’ legacy and military power to deter any Israeli aggression on Lebanon, Nasrallah added.
Referring to the current dispute with Saudi Arabia, the Hezbollah leader said that he disagreed with the resignation of the Lebanese Information Minister George Kordahi.
He noted that Riyadh has problems with Hezbollah rather than the information minister.
Nasrallah added that Saudi Arabia’s demands from Lebanon will not end after the resignation of Kordahi.
“The crisis that Saudi Arabia has started is part of a struggle against the Resistance,” he said.
Nasrallah added that Riyadh serves the interest of Washington and Tel Aviv in Lebanon.
He rejected Saudi Arabia’s claim on Hezbollah’s control over Lebanon, while he acknowledged that the Resistance group is the biggest political force in the country.
He pointed to the Saudi war on Yemen, saying that “Saudi Arabia has spent billions of dollars in Yemen over the past seven years. Today, the Saudis know very well that the defeat in Ma’rib would mean their total defeat in Yemen.”
He also called for an impartial investigation on the blast in Beirut Port.
