“They (the US and its allies) intended to undermine Iran’s regional influence, but everyone witnessed how this policy backfired to increase Iran’s influence and a united front was formed against the Zionist regime, and the Lebanese Hezbollah has now developed such an extent of power through the experience of confrontation against proxy wars that it is now able to wipe the Zionist regime off the map in any possible war by itself,” General Salami said, addressing a ceremony in the Northwestern city of Urumiyeh on Wednesday.
He also referred to the formation of popular resistance forces in Iraq and Yemen, said, “The popular forces in Yemen defeated the powerful US military system, which is indicative of enemies’ wrong policy towards Iran.”
In relevant remarks in March, former IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said that the Israeli expansionist dreams turned sour with the victory of the Islamic Revolution, adding that Lebanon’s Hezbollah enjoyed missiles with a range that covered the whole Israeli-occupied territories.
General Jafari, in an interview on the 40th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution, touched upon the bullying rhetoric of Israel against his country, and said, “While they once dreamed of their territorial expansion from the Nile River to the Euphrates River, and they were after realizing this wish in the past 50 years, today you can see that they have been unable to expand their land even for an inch; they even have lost some of the territories they had already occupied and are under full siege from all around their borders.”
Saying that the whole Israeli-occupied territories were within the range of the missiles of Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Jafari referred to the resistance staged by the people of Gaza, and said, “The current status quo and the current capabilities of the Resistance Front of the Islamic Revolution are all the unique accomplishments of the Islamic Revolution which cannot be verbally described and they rather should be sensed.”
“To put it in a nutshell, we can say that the enemy has not been successful in the region and all its plots and operations have ended up with nothing but failure for them and success for the Islamic Revolution and the Resistance Front,” he asserted.
