The Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, revealed that the late commander of the Iranian Quds Force, Major General Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated by Washington about a year ago, was the person responsible for bringing Russian-made Kornet guided missiles to Gaza.
Nasrallah said in an interview with Al-Mayadeen TV on Sunday: “Hajj Qassem Soleimani and his team did not fail at anything that could be offered to Palestine at all levels.”
He stressed, “The delivery of Kornet missiles to the Palestinian resistance in Gaza was led by martyr Soleimani.”
Nasrallah also pointed out that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad agreed to deliver the Kornet missiles to Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) in Gaza.
“The effort of Hajj Qassem Soleimani and the Quds Force in supporting the Palestinian resistance factions was far from the spotlight and behind the scenes.”
