Major victory over terrorism, imminent in S Syria

TEHRAN, Jun. 30 (MNA) – Secretary General of Lebanon's Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, has said that Syrian Army along with Resistance forces will gain a major victory in Daara very soon.

“Developments in South Syria are going in the right direction, and all the evidence show the destruction of armed groups. People are returning towards the government and we can see a great victory there,” Hassan Nasrallah said while addressing his supporters via a televised speech broadcast from the Lebanese capital city of Beirut on Friday evening.

Nasrallah also said that Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) would give an appropriate response to the deadly airstrikes by the US-led coalition against their forces in the east of Syria earlier this month.

He further refused to clarify that Hezbollah fighters are present in Yemen, saying “for some certain reasons we have not said that whether we are present in Yemen or not,” while rejecting the reports claiming Hezbollah forces were killed in Yemen.

He described the Saudi and UAE-led Coalition war on Yemeni port city of Hudayda as a scandal, saying that western countries’ forces including France and Britain are also helping the aggressors.

He further wished he had been alongside Yemeni forces fighting against aggressors, stressing that Yemeni nation would not surrender.   

The Hezbollah secretary general further linked the pressures and sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran with the  Palestine issue, saying “what's happening in Syria, as well as the withdrawal of the United States from Iran nuclear deal and the sanctions against Iran and its oil, are all in line with ‘the Deal of the Century’ plot, which is aimed at suppressing the Palestinians.”

Elsewhere in his remarks, Nasrallah addressed the ongoing political process in Lebanon, calling for unity among Lebanese people and speedy formation of the new government.
