Press TV, Beirut Hezbollah held its annual ceremony to honor its martyred leaders, but this time two new commanders were in the picture. Along with Sayyed Abbas al-Mousawi, Sheikh Ragheb Harb, and Imad Mughniyah, General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Muhandis were also remembered almost forty days after they were assassinated by US occupying forces.
The role of these people was outlined by Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah who said that after every martyrdom, the resistance enters a new phase.
Hezbollah leader lashed out at US President Donald Trump for what he described as crimes committed in recent weeks.
In his televised address, Nasrallah said both atrocities serve tyrannical and hegemonic schemes by the US and Israel.
He also said the so-called deal of the century Trump unveiled last month aims to eradicate the Palestinian cause. Elsewhere in his remarks, Nasrallah described Trump’s administration as the most arrogant, unjust and corrupt administration in US history.
He said US crimes have ushered the beginning of direct confrontation with the resistance forces in West Asia. During this speech, the Hezbollah chief also called on Iraqis to respond to US through expelling its troops.
Hezbollah’s annual celebration was originally to commemorate the martyrdom of three main leaders.
This year, with the martyrdom of General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Hezbollah seems to be giving it a more regional connotation
