No Israeli in the occupied territories feels secure due to the Palestinian resistance’s missiles, Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami said, stressing that the Lebanese Hezbollah Movement is also ready to storm the Zionist regime by its high-precision missiles.
“Today, all the residents in the occupied territories feel insecure and the security of the occupied territories is in an equation that on one side the powerful Hezbollah exists which is ready to storm the occupied territories and everyone knows the destruction power and preciseness of its weapons, and the other variable in this equation is the Palestinian resistance which has destroyed 11 tanks of the regime and damaged 48 others using good tactics, techniques, technologies, missiles, rockets and new weapons,” Salami said in a live interview with Iran’s state-run TV on Saturday night.
He underlined that the Zionist regime’s failures started since the 33-day war against Hezbollah in Summer 2006, and then its failures continued in the wars on Gaza in 2008 and in 2012 which was faced with the Palestinians’ more advanced weapons.
Salami, meantime, blasted certain Arab regional states for their opposition to the Palestinian resistance, and said, “The reason that the Zionist regime has chosen this opportunity for attacking Gaza is that they felt that the policies of the Arab regional states is more coordinated with the Zionist regime than the resistance.”
He described Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan as three allies of Washington in the region whose policies are regulated based on the US and Israeli policies, and said the Americans have tried hard to replace the Zionists’ threat to the region with the so-called Iran threat and create Iranophobia in the region.
They also sought to weaken and create instability in Syria in a move to undermine the resistance front, Salami added.
Hezbollah Leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah has vowed that his party will stand by the resistance in Gaza.
“Hezbollah and the Lebanese resistance will stand by the Palestinian people’s uprising and resistance in our heart, willpower, hope and destiny,”Nasrallah said in a speech in July.
South Lebanon has generally been calm since the end of the month-long war between Israel and Hezbollah in the summer of 2006.
However some Israeli media said since the start of Israel’s attack on Gaza, there have been several rocket attacks from Lebanon in solidarity with the Palestinians.
