Israel collapsed after the Palestinian resistance launched Operation Al-Aqsa Storm into the occupied territories on October 7 and will in no way survive its own quagmire in the Gaza Strip, says a high-ranking official with the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah.
Sayyed Hashem Safieddine, head of the Executive Council of Hezbollah, made the remarks in an interview with a media delegation from Iran and a group of Iranian journalists in the Lebanese capital of Beirut on Tuesday, the 25th day of Operation Al-Aqsa Storm by the Gaza-based Palestinian resistance groups.
Safieddine pointed to reports and accurate field information gained by Hezbollah since the start of the Palestinian surprise attack and said, “After the successful Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, the Zionist regime completely fell apart in terms of military and intelligence.”
Stressing that Lebanon’s Hezbollah had no prior knowledge of the Palestinian operation and had heard about it from the media, Safieddine said the operation was utterly Palestinian and Hezbollah was delighted that Hamas had gained such a high intelligence capability.
“We have definite news that the United States and some Western countries have sophisticated and extensive intelligence services in Gaza, but all these services were defeated by Hamas,” the head of the Executive Council of Hezbollah said.
”We are proud of our fighter brothers because of such high power in the complex execution of an operation.”
Reaffirming that the Israeli occupation army is in its worst situation and has collapsed after the October 7 attack, the Hezbollah official said the Zionist regime’s security and intelligence systems fell apart during the latest developments and its high-ranking military officers are in maximum disarray and disagreement.
“Their army is in a state of panic,” Safieddine said. “The Zionist forces who are in the north of Palestine record audio files and send them to Lebanon’s Hezbollah and address Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and say that we do not intend to confront you and if the war starts, we are with you and we do not intend to clash with you in any way.”
Underlining that field, intelligence and organization work in the occupied territories is at the disposal of Americans since the Hamas-led operation, Safieddine said, “The US is nowadays in the middle of the field of killing foreigners, Palestinian women and children.”
Touching on allegations about the Israeli regime’s military action against Iran, the Hezbollah official said, “First, they had better terminate the ongoing war and see how the situation unfolds after the war, and then talk about Iran. The Zionist regime will not get out of the quagmire in Gaza unscathed.”
Israel waged a genocidal war on the blockaded Gaza Strip on October 7 after Hamas-led Palestinian resistance groups carried out Operation al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity.
Since the start of the aggression, the regime has been committing war crimes in Gaza, killing at least 8,610 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injuring more than 23,000 others.
Israel has imposed a “complete siege” on the territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
