‘A prelude to Israel’s destruction’: Hezbollah hails al-Aqsa Storm

The Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah’s Deputy Secretary-General, Sheikh Naim Qassem

Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has considered al-Aqsa Storm, the Palestinian resistance groups’ historic operation of last October against the occupied territories, to be “a prelude to Israel’s destruction.”

The movement’s Deputy Secretary-General Sheikh Naim Qassem made the remarks during a ceremony marking the mourning month of Muharram in Beirut on Monday.

“The earthquake that took place in the form of al-Aqsa Storm will serve as a reason and a prelude for the enemy’s destruction,” he said.

“These acts of sacrifice and bravery will change the equation,” Qassem noted.

The surprise retaliatory operation took place on October 7. It witnessed the coastal sliver’s resistance movements storming the occupied territories and taking hundreds captive.

The Israeli regime has retaliated with a genocidal war that has claimed the lives of at least 32,000 Palestinians so far.

Gaza’s resistance groups have, however, vowed to continue standing up to the regime with all their resources amid reports that thousands of Israeli forces have been either killed or wounded as a result of the resistance’s determined struggle against the regime’s military since the onset of the war.

Hezbollah and resistance groups hailing from Yemen and Iraq began staging hundreds of operations in support of Gazans after the launch of the war, striking sensitive targets across the occupied territories as well as Israeli ships and the vessels heading towards the territories.

“These sacrifices are a prelude for [realization] of justice,” Qassem asserted, adding, “The Israeli regime will not last and injustice will be terminated.”

He, meanwhile, noted that whoever lends support to the occupying regime, whether in words or through their silence, equaled “an oppressor.”

The brutal Israeli military onslaught has enjoyed untrammeled political, military, and intelligence support on the part of the regime’s allies, most notably the United States.
