TEHRAN: A top leader of the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, says struggles against Takfiris and Zionists will go on until they suffer defeat.
War against Takfiris and Zionists will continue until they are finally defeated, said Sheikh Naeem Qassem, the deputy secretary general of Hezbollah, during Friday Prayers in Tehran.
The senior cleric highlighted the role of Hezbollah in warding off Tel Avivs threats, saying, Israel would be throwing its weight around in Lebanon if the [Hezbollah] resistance [movement] were not there.
He said Hezbollah fights in Lebanon and Syria to defend those nations as well as Islam.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the cleric described Iran as a regional and global heavyweight, and also praised Irans persistence in pursuing its nuclear rights.
Iran managed to secure this [regional and international] power through patience, perseverance and resistance, he noted.
Hezbollah leader accused Riyadh of unleashing mayhem in Yemen. The Saudi government kills children, women and men [in Yemen], but human rights circles make no objections, said the cleric.
He said rights groups have remained tight-lipped in the face of the massacre of the Yemeni people, but we will not remain silent and will emerge victorious.
Yemeni people will also achieve victory, he noted.
Since March 26, Riyadh has been pounding various areas in Yemen without a UN mandate. The Saudi military aggression is meant to undermine the Ansarullah fighters and restore power to Yemens fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of the Riyadh regime.
The UN says the Saudi war on Yemen has killed over 4,000 people, nearly half of them civilians, since late March. Local Yemeni sources, however, put the fatality figure at a much higher number.
