Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah hails Ismail Ahmad Zahri, a commander of the resistance movement who passed away last week.
According to Press TV, speaking during a televised address in Beirut on Friday, he said Zahri represents the first generation of fighters who joined the resistance movement.
“Zahri was one of the commanders who contributed greatly to Lebanon’s victory against Israel in the war in 2006,” Nasrallah said, adding that he “never neglected his duties despite suffering from illness.”
SAyyed Nasrallah said that the resistance movement is “certain about victory with such devoted commanders as Zahri.”
He also expressed regret that the issue of Palestine “has become a trivial matter among some Arab nations in recent years.”
Referring to reports about Saudi-Israeli relations, Nasrallah said the Riyadh regime gives the normalization of its ties with Israel free of charge and without any benefits for Palestinians.
“Saudi Arabia is setting a dangerous example for other nations in establishing ties with Israel,” he added.
The Hezbollah secretary general went on to say that any Saudi-Israeli relations will be followed by the Arab kingdom’s recognition of the Israeli regime.
