The secretary general of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says he is confident that the Palestinian nation and resistance factions will eventually emerge victorious and the Israeli regime will suffer a humiliating defeat in the Gaza Strip.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah made the remarks in a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in the Lebanese capital Beirut on Saturday, during which they discussed the latest regional developments, most notably the ongoing Israeli offensives against Palestinians in the besieged coastal territory.

The meeting was also attended by Iran’s ambassador to Beirut Mojtaba Amani, senior adviser to the Iranian foreign minister Ali Asghar Khaji, and director general of the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s West Asia and North Africa Department Mahdi Shoushtari.

Nasrallah hailed the unflinching support offered by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei as well as the Iranian government and nation for oppressed and resilient Palestinians.

He pointed to the high combat readiness as well as utmost unison and cooperation among all forces of the Axis of Resistance, stressing that, “The Zionist enemy is faced with a strategic crisis and has failed to achieve any of its declared objectives goals” for the war on Gaza.

The Hezbollah leader went on to commend Ayatollah Khamenei’s sensible, transparent and sovereign positions vis-à-vis unfolding developments in the Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank as matchless among world leaders.

Nasrallah described the resistance front as an important playmaker in regional equations, saying, “The victory of the Palestinian nation and the resistance front is certain and definite.”

For his part, Amir-Abdollahian briefed the Hezbollah chief on Iran’s diplomatic efforts at the international arena in support of Palestine and their resistance groups, stressing that the measures have especially focused on a political solution to the Palestinian issue that would help restore the people’s rights.

He stated that recognition of the Axis of Resistance as the main party in proposed political initiatives attests to the significant role that the umbrella group plays in Palestine and the entire West Asia region. 

“The Palestinian resistance front has acted wisely and authoritatively both on the path of resilience and a political solution [to the Gaza conflict.]

“In any political initiative, the role of Palestinians and consensus among Palestinian leaders and groups should be taken into serious consideration,” the Iranian foreign minister emphasized.

Heading a political delegation, Amir-Abdollahian has traveled to Lebanon in the first leg of a regional tour that focuses on ways to bring an end to the Israeli regime’s onslaught on Gaza.

Talks on the bilateral, regional and international issues, especially the developments in Palestine, and discussions on ways to stop the Tel Aviv regime’s aggression against Gaza are on the agenda of his regional tour.

Following his visit to Beirut, the top Iranian diplomat will head to the Syrian capital of Damascus and the Qatari capital of Doha.
