Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed that Iran is powerful and won’t abandon the resistance groups in the region, affirming that passing of President Ebrahim Raisi and companions won’t lead to any change in the policy of the Islamic Republic.

In a ceremony held in tribute to late President Raisi, FM Hossein Amir Abdollahian and other companions in Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh), Sayyed Nasrallah addressed Iran enemies, as saying: “Deluded are all those who wait for Iran to weaken or to abandon the resistance groups in the region.” The Hezbollah leader hit back at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s threats, stressing that Hezbollah is the party who has the right to talk about surprises.

Sayyed Nasrallah said the Zionist entity has to wait for surprises, noting that the resistance groups in Gaza, Lebanon and Yemen have been surprising the Israeli enemy since the start of the war following Op.

His eminence warned that if Netanyahu goes ahead with the war in Gaza then “he will be heading towards catastrophe and abyss.” He also mocked Israeli ministers who called for controlling south Lebanon, addressing them as wondering if the Israeli army has managed to control Gaza first.

Sayyed Nasrallah noted, meanwhile, that today, in the eighth month of the war Israeli officials are admitting that the Zionist enemy is in failure.

His eminence reiterated condolences to Imam Mahdi (May Allah hasten his reappearance), Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, families of the martyrs and the entire Iranian nation.

President Raisi Role Model Sayyed Nasrallah praised late President Ebrahim Raisi, saying he was a role model in the positions he had occupied.

“We’d known Sayyed Raisi since he was the Chairman of Astan Quds Razavi and then the Head of the Judiciary in Iran, before being elected as a President of the Islamic Republic.” “Sayyed Ebrahim Raisi was a scholar, religious, compassionate, loving, humble and courageous in face of hegemonic powers.

He repeatedly said that he considered himself a soldier under the banner of Supreme Leader Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei.” Sayyed Nasrallah said that late President Raisi withstood both political and economic challenges amid the blockade and sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic.

“The era of President Raisi witnessed a development in Iran’s diplomatic presence and witnessed the prioritization of the relationship with Iran’s neighboring countries and the East.” “Sayyed Raisi had great faith in the Palestinian cause, the resistance, and the resistance groups in the region.”

“Third Largest Funeral” Sayyed Nasrallah then pointed to the mass turnout for the funeral of Raisi and companions on both the official and the popular levels.

His eminence referred to the mourning services and funeral processions in Tabriz, Qom, Tehran, Mashhad and many other Iranian cities as unprecedented.

“The funeral of President Raisi and companions in the third largest funeral in the new history following funeral of Imam Khomeini and martyr Hajj Qassem Suleimani,” the Hezbollah SG said.

His eminence said there were two messages that can be derived from the mass funeral of President Raisi and companions.

“The mass funeral of President Raisi and companions has delivered a message of loyalty and allegiance to the path of Imam Khamenei in Iran.

The second message is that Iran is powerful and cohesive stat.”

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed, meanwhile, that “deluded are those who are waiting for Iran to weaken or to abandon Palestine and resistance groups.” In this context, the Hezbollah leader hit back at those who claim that Hezbollah’s popularity is down, saying: “Those who accuse Hezbollah of losing popularity suffer disorders related to denial and dissociation from reality, a local funeral of a Hezbollah martyr in south Lebanon is more popular than a central ceremony celebrated by any other Lebanese power.” This item is being updated-
