Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said here on Thursday that it goes without saying that if the Zionist regime launches any military operations against the Islamic Republic of Iran, it would be tantamount to destruction of that regime.
Brigadier General Vahidi made the remarks at the Second International Seminar for Commemorating the Muslim World’s Commanders on Thursday in Tehran.
‘The statements by Zionist regime’s officials pertaining to attacking Iran are funny, because they are unaware that the Iranian warriors like Lebanese Hezbollah’s fighters wish to eliminate that regime from the face of the earth,’ he added.
Noting that the Zionist regime is on the threshold of annihilation, Brigadier General Vahidi noted that that the Iranians are a proud nation and Hezbollah is at the frontline of war with the Zionists.
The defense minister noted that Hezbollah has great potential in fighting the Zionist regime.
‘Islamic awakening in the Middle East and North Africa is the result of 33-day resistance by Hezbollah and 22-day resistance by Palestinians against the Zionist regime,’ he added.
Referring to the fact that Lebanon is the only Arab country that forcefully got back its rights from the Zionist regime, Brigadier General Vahidi noted that Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah is a greater man in comparison to freedom fighters like Nelson Mandela of South Africa and Jawaharlal Nehru of India because they only considered their own countries’ problems, but Nasrallah looks beyond Lebanon.
