Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has lauded the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement’s triumph over Israel in the 33-day war in 2006 as the “greatest ever victory” for the Lebanese and regional resistance.
During the 33-day war, the resistance succeeded in shattering the hollow image of the usurping Israeli regime which brought dignity to nations and disgrace to the global arrogance front and its allies, President Ahmadinejad said in a message to Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah on Sunday.
“Today, the den of spider is shakier than ever and the resistance front is stronger than any other time before,” the Iranian chief executive pointed out.
Israel unleashed the all-out offensive on Lebanon six years ago under the pretext of releasing Israeli soldiers allegedly captured by the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah in the southern border region of the country.
The invasion claimed the lives of nearly 1200 Lebanese people, most of them civilians.
