Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah calls Zionist entity "moribund"

The General Secretary of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has called the Zionist entity of “Israel” a “temporary regime, whose termination is only a matter of time.”

“The Zionist regime [of Israel] is moribund,” Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah said on Wednesday during an interview with Lebanon’s al-Manar television network.

The Hezbollah chief said he endorsed a campaign that calls the occupying Zionist regime a “temporary regime.”

Nasrallah also asserted that Hezbollah “was completely prepared for battle,” adding that “If the Israeli enemy happens to impose a war on Lebanon, it will get to witness our bravery.”

Lebanon fought off two Israeli invasions in 2000 and 2006, both resulting in Lebanese victory and Zionist defeat. On both occasions, battleground contribution by Hezbollah proved an indispensable asset, forcing the Israeli military into a retreat.

“When you choose silence and surrender your weapons, it is as if you are telling the enemy that ‘I am wretched and weak.’ [This is while] the enemy is arrogant and will render you weaker,” Nasrallah noted.

The Hezbollah leader meanwhile asserted that the resistance had become stronger in all areas, including its military power and devotion.

“There are no ceilings to this resistance,” he said, affirming that “the Resistance’s supporters have grown larger in number.”

The remarks came less than a week after a senior Hezbollah official said the Lebanese resistance movement was sure to emerge victorious from any war, citing the group’s achievements, including its recent successful flying of a drone over the Israeli-occupied territories.

“Hezbollah is strong and is capable of winning any type of warfare,” Sayyid Hashem Safieddine, head of the movement’s Executive Council, said on Saturday.

A day earlier, the group had reported a successful flyover of a UAV inside the depths of the occupied territories, returning the aircraft safely to Lebanon afterwards.

Before returning, the aircraft “roamed over its targeted area for 40 minutes on a reconnaissance mission, which extended along 70 kilometers,” Hezbollah announced in a statement on Friday.
