The Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah pledged full support for the Palestinian people’s resistance against the Israeli offensive on the besieged Gaza Strip.
Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, who was addressing a crowd of Lebanese people on the occasion of the International Quds Day on Friday, said that Israel’s massacres in the blockaded sliver meant to remove not only Hamas but all Palestinian resistance factions.
“We, in Hezbollah, stand beside the Palestinian people and the Palestinian resistance without an exception. We will not spare any means of support that we can and are able to provide,” Nasrallah said, adding, “We feel that we are true partners with the Palestinian resistance. ... Your victory is our own.”
Nasrallah stated the Zionist regime’s aggression against the coastal enclave will result in a defeat for Israel, similar to the 2006 war against Lebanon, citing Palestinian missiles that can reach Tel Aviv today.
“To the Zionist I say: In Gaza, you are moving in a circle of failure and do not go to the circle of suicide or a total collapse.”
He also called on Arab and Islamic countries to pressure Israel in order to end the blockade of Gaza.
In a telephone conversation with Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal earlier this week, Nasrallah said the resistance movement would support “Palestinian people’s uprising and resistance in our heart, willpower, hope and destiny.”
Israeli warplanes have been carrying out incessant airstrikes against the blockaded Gaza Strip since July 8. On July 17, thousands of Israeli soldiers launched a ground invasion into the densely-populated strip.
So far, at least 866 people have been killed and thousands of others injured by the Israeli regime’s offensive against the coastal sliver despite pressure from the international community.
The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, has been launching retaliatory attacks against Israel.
