Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said that since the very beginning it was required that the Takfiri threat should be confronted to prevent the fulfillment of Israeli desires in the region.
“What we witnessed during the past years was a blind sedition and the situation from the beginning was unleashing that we were facing a Takfiri attack represented by al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra front and ISIL as well as all the Takfiri groups who were brought from all over the world and provided with facilities,” Sayyed Nasrallah said in a speech on Saturday evening during the central Ashura mourning ceremony held by Hezbollah in Sayyed al-Shuhada complex in Beirut’s southern suburb. “At first, the situation may have been unclear to some, but the Americans, with the recognition of Donald Trump, supported and provided facilities of all kinds to the Takfiris.”
Hezbollah’s S.G. wondered if there had not been any initiative to confront this terrorist attack, where would the fate of the region and Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Iran and even the Gulf countries be.
“This was the launch pad for Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Sistani’s fatwa for confronting the ISIL terrorist group,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding had the Iraqi people not adopted this fatwa and defended their homeland, ISIL would have occupied all of Iraq. “Iraq is today close to full victory and liberation,” his eminence said.
Sayyed Nasrallah wondered what Lebanon would end up with had the Islamic Resistance not confronted the Israeli enemy.
“It is certain that in Lebanon there would be Israeli colonies and part of the Lebanese people would live in refugee camps outside or inside Lebanon. The prisons would be full of youth and everyone will live under the Israeli occupation,” his eminence said.
However, the resistance stood against the Israeli enemy out of its doctrine to defend the right without waiting for anyone in the world and therefore was the resistance and victory, Sayyed Nasrallah continued.
