Iranian Parliament Speaker’s top adviser for international affairs Hossein Sheikholeslam warned that the Lebanese Resistance Movement’s preparedness to confront any possible Israeli aggression by tens of thousands of missiles.
“Now Hezbollah has tens of thousands of missiles ready to be fired at Israel,” Sheikholeslam said addressing a meeting in Tehranon Wednesday.
He underlined that Hezbollah has established such a power balance that Israel’s Iron Dome has turned into a theoretical joke.
“The deterrence power of Hezbollah is the result of (its) continued cooperation with former Syrian President Hafez Al-Assad and his son Bashar Al-Assad,” Sheikholeslam said.
On Tuesday, Senior Military Aide to the Iranian Supreme Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi warned the US and the Zionist officials against any military action on the country, saying such a mistake will amount to the destruction of Israel by the Iranian and the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement forces.
“The Iranian nation and Armed Forces are ready for an all-out defense and protection of the country with all their power and they will respond to any aggression with reciprocal and inconceivable strikes,” Safavi said in the Northwestern province of Zanjan, addressing a large number of Iranian people participating in the annual rallies to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
He downplayed the US and Israeli officials’ war rhetoric against Iran, and warned, “The start of war against Iran means the destruction of the Zionist regime by Hezbollah forces of Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah.”
