Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah:

– Martyr Qasim Soleimani was a major partner (of ours) in liberation of Lebanon in year 2000, it is my obligation to reveal this after his martyrdom

– When Israeli war against Lebanon began in year 2006, martyr Qasim Soleimani came to us and remained with us in operations room till end of war

– Iran facilitated to large degree via martyr Qasim Soleimani the return of displaced (Lebanese) after end of Israeli war against Lebanon in 2006

– The Islamic Republic of Iran has huge role in current power of Lebanese Resistance, which Israel views as an existential threat

– Martyr Soleimani never asked anything from the Lebanese Resistance for Iran’s interests throughout all these years

– One of the most dangerous threats that Iraq experienced was Daesh, & so Soleimani came to help Iraq, & Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis was a major commander in this confrontation

– That a person or state or nation stands beside the oppressed nations of the world is the example provided by the (true) Islamic state (of Iran)

– One significant consequence of Hajj Soleimani’s martyrdom is the funeral procession in Iraq and its effects in reviving the situation in the country and confronting the (plots) being prepared for it

– The people of the region & its states must thank Iraq’s PMF, its leaders, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis & Hajj Qasim Soleimani, because they protected the region

– Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis worked till last moments of his life in PMF to confront Daesh, if Daesh had gained victory in Iraq the whole region would have been in danger

– The great funeral procession in Iran for martyrs and Hajj Qasim, especially in Tehran, was a incredible gathering that has no comparison in human history apart from funeral procession for late Imam Khomeini

– The funeral processions in Ahwaz were a message to certain Gulf regimes who seek to stir up plots (in Iran) via the Ahwaz region

– The huge funeral processions for Hajj Qasim Soleimani terrified Trump and his administration

– Every single suicide bomb operation carried out by Daesh against our people (in the region) and in every mosque and church, must be labelled with ‘Made in America’

– America is the number one threat and Israel is merely a US tool and military outpost planted in our region

– The response to America’s crime (in killing Soleimani & Muhandis) is not one operation, but rather a long track which must lead to US forces leaving the region

– What happened in Ain Al-Assad is only a slap & not the (entire) revenge for the assassination. It is a strong military beginning. It is the first step that will lead to the withdrawal of US from the region

– The main target (of Iran’s missile attack) was Ain al-Assad, the missiles reached the heart of the base and struck their targets

– When (certain) media began to say there were no deaths or injuries & downplayed the attack, we knew Trump will not go to war

– The decision to respond (to America) reflects unparalleled courage & audacity on part of Iran

– The (Iranian missile) attack was a message for Israel also, that they take Iranian threats seriously… let the idiotic Netanyahu know the wrong position he put his entity in

– The Iranian missile strikes landed in the Ain al-Assad (base) in Iraq, yet the mourning gatherings began in the Zionist entity

– The strike on Ain al-Assad shattered America’s prestige

– Sayyed Nasrallah to Trump: You big hypocrite, you are asking Iran for cooperation to fight ISIS? You don’t want to fight ISIS, you killed the main two leaders who were fighting it!

– Trump is the most US president who makes up lies, they are all liars, but he is the worst. Haj Qasim Soleimani was never planning to attack US embassies! Trump just wanted to make up an excuse for his crime

– Trump’s resorting to sanctions without a (military) response to the Iranian targeting of Ain al-Assad is due to Iran’s power

– Sayyed Nasrallah to Massoud Barzani: You should show gratitude for Haj Qasim, when the whole world refused to help you, Hajj Qasim came to help you along with his companions (among whom were members of Hezbollah) while you where shivering from fear

– Trump put the Iraqis before two choices, either he leaves and takes their wealth, or stays and takes their oil

– If the Americans do not leave Iraq, the Iraqi nation is the one that will decide how to deal with the occupation forces

– The resistance must now begin its work, and on the other hand, the Americans must withdraw their soldiers & warships & leave the region

– As I said (days ago), the Americans came (to the region) vertically, but they must know that they will leave it horizontally (if they do not withdraw)

– Time will reveal that after Qasim Soleimani there will be no place for these arrogant and tyrannical (powers)
