Alwaght- Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Quds Force’s (IRGC) Quds Force commander, Maj. Gen Qassem Suleimani on Thursday hailed late Lebanese Hezbollah’s commander Hajj Imad Mughniyeh as a legend that had forced the Israeli enemy to acknowledge his superiority.
At a commemoration ceremony in Tehran in honor of Mughniyeh on his 10th martyrdom anniversary, Suleimani paid his tribute to him, noting that Mughniyeh’s martyrdom shocked the world, but “resulted in Islamic uprising” against the Israeli enemy. Suleimani expanded on Mughniyeh’s role in the Lebanese and Palestinian resistance.
“Hajj Imad Mughniyeh forced the Israelis to withdraw from south Lebanon and to acknowledge his superiority,” Suleimani said during the ceremony.
“Hajj Imad Mughniyeh had major role in turning Gaza into fortified stronghold of resistance against Israeli enemy.”
The Iranian general meanwhile, stressed that the real revenge for Mughniyeh is to eradicate the Zionist entity. Hezbollah’s number one commander was assassinated on Feb. 12, 2008 in a car bomb in Syrian capital Damascus, in a joint operation by Israeli spy agency Mossad and CIA.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Major General Qassem Soleimani said Israeli regime's horror, maniacal measures and vain attempts indicate that the Zionist regime is not going to last long.
“This regime of (Israel) is not going to survive. The measures of this mercenary regime show that it is not permanent, as there are no factors or signs of permanence in the (Zionist) regime,” he said.
The Iranian commander pointed to the obvious clues to impermanence of the Israeli regime, saying the “horror, the lunatic struggles and the futile (military) operations” explain the Tel Aviv regime’s “vain last-ditch attempts.”
He further said that the price for the blood of Mughniyeh and all those martyred in Israeli plots in Palestine, Lebanon, Iran and elsewhere would be “eradication of the child-murdering Zionist regime.”
