Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed on Friday that every spot of the Lebanese land will be a fortified hole that will destroy the Israeli tanks, kill the Israeli soldiers and defeat the Israeli army.
During a live speech he delivered on the ninth anniversary of the Divine Victory of July 2006, Sayyed Nasrallah said that there will not be a successful Israeli strategy in Lebanon from now on.
“This is our commitment, readiness and effective daily work regardless of all developments in the region.”
His eminence stated that the Israelis failed in land, sea and air during July war, because “there is no way for you [Israelis] to reach or to stay in this land, and what happened in July War is being taught as new military theories.”
He also stressed that Hezbollah presented the strategy of al-Hujeir Valley against the Israeli strategy of incursion and that Hezbollah’s will and determination are now stronger than they were in 2006.
Sayyed Nasrallah indicated that Hezbollah celebrates August 14 of every year in order to learn lessons from the event it represents, encouraging the Lebanese people to withstand against the enemy project and thwart its plans and achieve victory against the terrorists and the strongest army in the region.
Hezbollah Secretary General touched on the regional developments, urging the Arab and Muslim people to reject the partition projects and calling on the clerics and Imams of the Muslim Ummah to shoulder the responsibility of educating the public about the dangers of these plans.
“Today, we reject the current partition… This what the US, the Israelis and some regional powers are working on – whether intentionally or accidently – including the Saudi Arabia,” he said.
“The US uses Daesh today to divide the region whether Daesh knows that or not,” he added, underlying that the US wants to exploit the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) takfiri group to reformulate the region and draw new maps, without willing to strike ISIL in Syria because it wants to exploit the group to divide the country.
“US and allies employ Daesh to overthrow the regime in Syria, so do those who are other than Daesh can fight this group? This is the trick that is being used in more than a country in the region,” his eminence revealed.
Daesh is the Arabic acronym of the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) takfiri group.
On Iraq, Sayyed Nasrallah condoled the Iraqi people on the massacre committed by ISIL in al-Sadr city in Baghdad on Friday, that killed more than 70 people and left several hundreds wounded, and said that the Iraqi people were asked to change their government in exchange for receiving support to fight terrorism, but that promise was not fulfilled, adding that the US is cooperating with ISIL in Yemen to fight the national forces.
“Thus, it [the US] employs terrorism to implement its project, i.e. the partition,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
Addressing the Syrian file, Hezbollah Secretary General stressed that the Syrian people and army are fighting in Hasakeh, Aleppo, Idleb, Deir Ezzor, and Homs in order to maintain the unity of their country and to reject the partition plan.
On Yemen, his eminence reiterated Hezbollah condemnation of the Saudi-US aggression that sets the basis for other serious aggressions by Israel and the United States, stressing that wherever there is a cause, faith, steadfastness and dignity, this aggression will not achieve goals.
On the anniversary of the Divine Victory of July War that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) launched on Lebanon in 2006, leader of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance saluted the sacrifices of Hezbollah fighters who fought the enemy till the last drop of their blood, as well as the Lebanese army and people.
“Before such sacrifices and the convoys of martyrs… I can say that words are incapable of expressing, so I will replace words by kissing the hands of the families of martyrs and all those who sacrificed,” he said, adding that “by the blessing of their sacrifices, the victories have been achieved and your victory will be always permanent.”
Moreover, Sayyed Nasrallah called for declaring August 14 of every year a Divine Victory Day in July War, because it was the day when the IDF aggression was stopped and the enemy had failed to achieve its goals.
“This day also marks the return of our people to the land from which they were displaced in the most powerful popular reaction against the aggression,” he said.
“We want to prove through this political and media title that they were really experiencing a Divine Victory in August 14 which Allah granted all of us it. This is what we believe in,” he added.
“The mythical steadfastness of our army, people and Resistance represents the peak of this commitment… The military steadfastness integrated with the popular and political one in the face of the suspected projects and dictating conditions and waging threats, despite the political differences,” Hezbollah Secretary General reminded, noting that al-Hujeir battle of 2006 was very crucial and essential in ending the war and humiliating the enemy.
“It [al-Hujeir battle] foiled all his [the enemy’s] military plans and left no choice for him but to rapidly withdraw towards the borders,” his eminence said, highlighting that the enemy was in need to the ground progress so that he wouldn’t go out of the war with a full defeat, but the heroic fighters left scores of his tanks destroyed, and dozens of his soldiers killed.
“Here, the myth of Merkava tank and its undefeatable army was smashed. From al-Hujeir Valley, the project of occupying the south of Litani river had fallen,” Sayyed Nasrallah stated.
Regarding the political crisis in Lebanon, Hezbollah Secretary General stressed the party’s stance on the presidency challenge, reiterating the full support of Gen. Micheal Aoun, calling on all the political factions in the country to get united and build a strong state that serves all its people without discrimination, denying any Iranian interference in Hezbollah position in this regard.
The IDF launched in July 2006 34-day extensive war against Lebanon, killing more than thousand Lebanese and displacing around a million others, as more than 400 Israeli warplanes were hovering over the Lebanese territories on daily basis.
Al-Hujeir Valley is named as “Cemetery of Israeli Tanks” after Hezbollah fighters managed to destroy scores of IDF Merkava tanks in the valley during the last days of July war 2006.
