Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, underlined that the victory belongs to the resistance forces in the region as the Israeli regime is facing more and more challenges and defeats.
Velayati, who advises the Leader on international affairs, felicitated senior resistance officials on the occasion of the regional resistance movement’s recent victories.
He made the remarks in separate phone calls with Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Political Bureau of the Palestinian resistance movement of Hamas, Ziad al-Nakhale, secretary-general of the Palestinian resistance movement of Islamic Jihad, and Sheikh Naim Qassem, deputy secretary-general of the Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah.
Velayati considered the victories to be a source of pride for the Muslim world and the result of “unity and solidarity” between the Palestinian groups and Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
“We are very pleased with your recent victories, and hope for these victories to continue,” he told Haniyeh, s quoted by Tasnim news agency.
“Whatever effort the Zionist regime puts into preserving itself is met with defeat, and it (the regime) will eventually be faced with more challenges and frustrations,” the Iranian official asserted.
“Victory is undoubtedly yours,” he told the Palestinian official.
Speaking to Nakhale, Velayati congratulated the Islamic Jihad on the numerous successful resistance operations of the group’s fighters in the occupied West Bank.
“The outcome of the unity (between the Palestinian groups and Hezbollah) will be ultimate victory,” he told the Palestinian official, according to Press TV.
Speaking to Sheikh Qassem, the Leader’s advisor similarly congratulated him on the occasion of the resistance’s recent victories as well as the recent anniversary of the defeat that was imposed by Hezbollah on the Israeli military during Tel Aviv’s 33-Day War of 2006 against Lebanon.
Velayati considered Hezbollah to be “the flag-bearer of struggle in Lebanon and the Muslim world.”
For their part, the resistance leaders voiced gratitude towards the Islamic Republic for its supportive position towards the region’s resistance outfits.
