Hezbollah Praises Iran's Support For 'Resistance Front' Militants

Saturday, 11/11/2023

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has commended the Iranian regime’s support for his organization and the so-called "axis of resistance".

"Resistance forces have been able to continue to fight due to the Islamic Republic's support," Nasrallah said in his second speech since Hamas launched a terror attack against Israel that resulted in an Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip in pursuit of militants.

The "Resistance Front" refers to the alliance of armed militant groups sponsored by Iran, including Hezbollah, Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Houthis in Yemen, and Iraqi Shiite militias.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran continues to provide military and financial support to Palestinian groups and the resistance front, and has never concealed this support," Nasrallah said.

Established in 1982 by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Hezbollah is the cornerstone of a Tehran-backed alliance hostile to Israel and the United States.

Continuing on with the same rhetoric of his first speech, Nasrallah praised Hamas and denounced Israel without calling for a full-blown war by his group, however, he did point toward "an upgrade" in Hezbollah operations.

Meanwhile, in Riyadh, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi on Saturday. The Iranian official is in Riyadh for the joint Arab League- Organisation of Islamic Co-operation summit to discuss the situation in Gaza. Moslem leaders attending the summit called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.
