Israel not to survive long after blood it shed in Rafah

TEHRAN, May 28 (MNA) – The secretary of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement Hassan Nasrallah said Tuesday that "The blood shed in Rafah will hasten the defeat and demise of this Nazi-like and brutal entity, for which we see no future in our region."

Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, delivered a speech on Tuesday at the conclusion of receiving condolences for his mother's passing recently.

The Hezbollah leader addressed a ceremony at the Sayyed al-Shuhada Complex in the southern suburb of Beirut.

Addressing those mourning his mother’s passing, he said, "I welcome your presence, thank you for your condolences, and ask Allah to reward you with goodness in this world and the hereafter."

"I apologize for the circumstances that everyone is aware of, and I thank all those who attended at the mourning ceremonies. You all understand my situation, and I wish I could be in the first row to share your condolences," he added.

Nasrallah further said that "I apologize for not being able to be with you in person and for not answering phone calls. Your support and actions mean a great deal to us."

"Thanks to all those who consoled us from Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, India, Turkey, Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Egypt, Tunisia, Mauritania, and many African countries, as well as Jordan, Morocco, Djibouti, and the Lebanese communities in diaspora countries."

"I express my heartfelt gratitude to my brothers in the leadership of Hezbollah and the Amal Movement for their early presence to offer condolences alongside my father and for standing for hours to accept condolences," he said, according to Al Manar TV English website. 

"The late Nahdia Hashem Safi Al-Din, born to two Hashemite masters, was a devout, pure, and gentle woman. She remained uninvolved in the affairs of others, never offended anyone, and harbored no hatred," the Hezbollah leader further said.

Nasrallah also said about his mother that, "Her family was her top priority, ensuring their upbringing and protection. She was a contented woman who never complained about clothing, housing, or food, and she spent most of her life in a single room."

"The mother actively supported the father in shouldering responsibilities, demonstrating patience and a commitment to righteousness, particularly in her dealings with her parents," he also said, adding that "Martyr Hadi was her first grandson whom she loved dearly, and he reciprocated that love, his martyrdom profoundly impacted her."

"Throughout her life, my mother praised Allah in times of both health and sickness. When asked about her well-being, she would respond with gratitude, saying that she was doing well, thanks to Allah," he said.

Nasrallah continued to say that, "We were born in a humble neighborhood known as the Sharshbouk neighborhood, a part of the Karantina area. Despite the absence of a mosque, scholar, or religious activities in our vicinity, the blessings of faith and religiosity from our parents guided us."

"From the outset, we aligned ourselves with the teachings of Imam Sayyed Mousa al-Sadr and his movement, a commitment that persists whether we are affiliated with Hezbollah or the Amal movement, myself and my brothers included," he noted, adding that, "While not large, our neighborhood was diverse, home to Lebanese, Palestinians, Kurds, Armenians, and Maslakh Arabs, all of whom shared a common experience of poverty. Despite our circumstances, there existed a sense of love, peace, and solidarity among us all."

"We aspire to witness today the same unity and harmony that characterized life in the Sharshbouk neighborhood; the core issue in Lebanon, in our view, lies in the actions of certain political leaders who, instead of fostering unity, incite division and conflict," the Hezbollah chief continued to say elsewhere in his speech. 

"The massacre in Rafah stands as a stark confirmation of the enemy’s brutality, treachery, and betrayal. In our perspective, their actions mirror those of historical killers of prophets, as they mercilessly bomb tents and mutilate the bodies of children," he added.

"The blood that was shed in Rafah should stir the conscience of all those who have remained silent until now," he also said, "The massacre stripped away all the false pretenses of legality and adherence to international laws that the occupation had cloaked itself in."

"To those who seek normalization, we ask: with whom do you seek to normalize? With these treacherous monsters whose crimes know no bounds?" the Hezbollah leader further highlighted.

"A few days ago, the International Court of Justice called for an end to the aggression, yet the response was met with violent raids," he also said about the ruling of the ICJ recently.

"These massacres must serve as a stark example for us and for those who rely on the international community and international laws to protect Lebanon," further underscored Nasrallah.

"The body parts of Gaza’s children scream in your ears, their blood staining your faces, and their severed heads address you. Strength, unity, resistance, martyrs and sacrifices will protect you; submission and surrender at the door of the helpless international community will not do so," he continued, adding that, " We are in the month of liberation, May, when we reclaimed our land through sacrifices and blood, the resistance has offered thousands of martyrs in this endeavor."

"The blood shed in Rafah will hasten the defeat and demise of this Nazi-like and brutal entity, for which we see no future in our region," continued Hezbollah leader.
