Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah is to speak today on the occasion of martyrdom anniversary of the resistance leaders.
During a massive ceremony in Beirut’s Southern Suburb (Dahiyeh), Sayyed Nasrallah is to deliver a long-awaited speech, which comes nearly a week after Syria downed an Israeli F-16 fighter jet.
The ceremony entitled “We Kept The Pledge” is to be held at Sayyed Shuhadaa Complex at 3:30 p.m. (Beirut time), according to a statement released by Hezbollah’s Media Relations last week.
February 16 is the martyrdom anniversary of Hezbollah’s Leaders, Sheikh Ragheb Harb, Sayyed Abbas Al-Mousawi and Hajj Imad Mughniyeh, all were assassinated by the Zionist enemy throughout different years of confrontation, but in the same week.
Sheikh Ragheb Harb was assassinated by an Israeli agent on February 16, 1984.
Late Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Abbas al-Mousawi was martyred, along with his wife and son, when an Israeli airstrike attacked his convoy as he was attending the commemoration anniversary of Sheikh Harb on February 16, 1992.
Later on February 12, 2008, Hezbollah’s top military commander Hajj Imad Moghniyeh was martyred in a car bomb attack carried out by Israeli Mossad agents.
