Hezbollah chief: Israel eager for Daesh, Al-Nusra Front victory

Tehran, Aug 14, IRNA – The Zionist regime is willing to see victories of Daesh and Al-Nusra Front terrorist groups, Secretary-General of the Lebanese Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah said.

Nasrallah made the remarks Sunday in a televised ceremony to mark the 11th anniversary of 2006 Hezbollah victory over the Israeli forces.

'I want to say after 2000 and 2006, today there is a resistance, a serious one who doesn’t know how to waste time and doesn't have a yearly vacation. It studies all developments in the region as well as Israel and it has the best weapons it can possibly get. In all transparency, when it enters a battle it does so with a set goal. The enemy knows this is its problem,' Lebanese media Al-Manar quoted Nasrallah as saying.

'We need to know the value and importance of this resistance. This resistance works for the national interest [of Lebanon] and not for any individual, religious or political goals.'

'After the July war, from Aug 14, 2006 until today, it has gained strength. Even the enemy admits to this. Every time someone bet on the defeat of the resistance and today anytime someone tries to do this, they will lose this bet.'

'Hezbollah is the force that fights and kills terrorists. Hezbollah fought and destroyed the greater Israeli project in 2000 and every day it continues to do so. Hezbollah is a part of the regional resistance that destroyed greater Israel in 2006.'

'The Israeli decision to close the ammonia plant [in Haifa] came as a decision because they respect their enemy [Hezbollah] and they respect Hezbollah because they know it is strong and if they thought they were weak they would not have done it because they make money it is not an easy decision.'

'Israel is counting on the Trump administration to be more strict on Hezbollah, the Lebanese government, the Lebanese people and friends of Hezbollah in Lebanon and in the region.'

'When we see the American authorities or [U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley] speaking, when (U.S.) President (Donald) Trump says the U.S. and the Lebanese government are partners in fighting Daesh and Hezbollah, it goes to show that he doesn't know that Hezbollah is in the government which America says it is allied with. We were never above the government of Lebanon and we never will be.'

'Trump doesn't know that the Lebanese government had not gone into a fight with Daesh when he was speaking [in his meeting with Prime Minister Saad Hariri]. Now, the Lebanese government is fighting Daesh [near Ras Baalbeck].'

'They say Hezbollah is a terrorist organization or a dangerous force in the region and Lebanon. First, the terrorists are America and Israel and even Trump said for one whole year during his electoral campaign that Obama and Clinton created Daesh.'

'Hezbollah is the force that fights and kills terrorists. Hezbollah fought and destroyed the greater Israeli project in 2000 and every day it continues to do so. Hezbollah is a part of the regional resistance that destroyed greater Israel in 2006.'

'The days where Israel would threaten and do, are over.'

'If an NGO or municipality plants a green tree on the border, Israel complains to the U.N. that someone is planting on the border but UNIFIL went and found nothing.'

'Why is Israel afraid of a tree on the border today? They are supposed to have trees and we should have a desert. They want nuclear weapons and we are not allowed to have a gun. They want technology and they want us to have donkeys. They want to be educated and want us to be illiterate.'

The 2006 Lebanon War, also called the 2006 Israel–Hezbollah War and known in Lebanon as the July War was a 34-day military conflict in Lebanon, Northern Israel and the Golan Heights. The principal parties were Hezbollah paramilitary forces and the Israel Forces.

The conflict started on 12 July 2006, and continued until a United Nations-brokered ceasefire went into effect in the morning on 14 August 2006, though it formally ended on 8 September 2006 when Israel lifted its naval blockade of Lebanon.
