Larijani felicitates Lebanese on Hezbollah victory anniv.

TEHRAN, Aug. 13(MNA) – Iran’s top MP Ali Larijani congratulated the Lebanese nation and Hezbollah on the anniversary of their victory over Israel in 2006.

In two congratulatory messages to Lebanese nation and resistance movement Hezbollah, Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani hailed the victory of the Lebanese over the Israeli regime in the 33-day war of 2006.

The messages were delivered to Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah and Lebanese parliament Speaker Nabih Berri.

In part of his message to Nasrallah it reads “this great victory, undoubtedly, achieved by the Islamic resistance, people’s persistence and the unity of all groups and factions will pave the ground for greater victories.”

In a similar message to his Lebanese counterpart Nabih Berri, Larijani said such a victory has been achieved through the sacrifices made by Lebanon’s resistance fighters as well as unity among the country’s leaders.

“Undoubtedly, the future belongs to Muslim nations and pious and revolutionary youths, while the occupying regime of al-Quds is moving towards demise,” the Iranian parliamentarian stated.

Tel Aviv launched wars on Lebanon in 2000 and 2006. About 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians, were killed in the 33-Day War of 2006.

On both occasions, however, Hezbollah fighters defeated the Israeli military and Tel Aviv was forced to retreat without achieving any of its objectives.

      Thank you for sharing these warm words of congratulations. Just one note: you state "Tel Aviv launched wars on Lebanon in 2000 and 2006." Should that not be 1978 and 2006? I am sure this was just an inadvertently misleading description, and was meant to indicate that the invasion of March 1978 effectively began a state of war and military occupation that lasted until the Liberation of May 2000.
