Earlier this week, Secretary-General of the Lebanese Hezbollah Movement Seyed Hassan Nasrallah stressed that Iran has played a key and vital role in the victories of the Lebanese and Palestinian resistance movements in recent years.
Addressing a ceremony in Beirut on Tuesday on the occasion of anniversary of the birth of the holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the 33rd anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Nasrallah stated that the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran gave “momentum to the project of Islamic unity”.
He lauded Iran’s support for the Lebanese resistance group, and noted, “Hezbollah has received from Iran the moral, political and financial support in all its available forms since 1982”.
“This support is a pride of the Islamic republic, because the resistance has achieved the most prominent Arab victory over the enemy. This victory wasn’t to be achieved without Iranian support, and Syria had a big role in the victory.”
