Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Iran was the “strongest country in the region” and that his organisation would stand by Tehran in case of a war against it, speaking at a rally marking the 40th anniversary of Iran’s Islamic Revolution in Beirut on Wednesday.
“Today the Islamic Republic is the strongest country in the region,” Nasrallah said.
“If there is no war on Iran, that does not mean that Trump does not want it. It is because Iran is strong, because Iran is capable,” Nasrallah continued, adding “when a war is waged against it, it will not be alone at all, because the destiny of our region, our peoples and our sanctities is also linked to the fate and existence of this blessed Islamic regime.”
Nasrallah’s speech followed last week’s formation of a new cabinet in Lebanon, with Hezbollah controlling three ministries.
