Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Sunday said that January 2, 2020, was a turning point in the region, and marks a new era not only for Iran but also for the entire region.

Hezbollah Chief’s words came in his address via a screen during the commemoration ceremony held by Hezbollah on Sunday at the Martyrs’ Complex in Beirut’s suburbs, coinciding with the funeral of Al-Quds Force Leader, Qassem Soleimani, and his comrades in the Iranian city of Mashhad.

The Hezbollah Secretary General mourned Soleimani, who was martyred in Iraq, paying condolences to the family of the martyr, indicating that he has achieved his personal goal and wish, which was “martyrdom.”

Nasrallah also offered condolences to the family of Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis on his martyrdom, disclosing he has visited Beirut’s suburbs three months ago and his long wish was “martyrdom.”

Nasrallah said that the assassination of Soleimani and Al Muhandis along with their companions in a brutal airstrike that targeted their convoy in Iraq was a clear and blatant crime, with US President Donald Trump giving the order for such an operation.

We are facing a clear crime rather than an ambiguous one, he corroborated.

Nasrallah also disclosed that several attempts were foiled in the past aimed at assassinating Hajj Soleimani.

The Hezbollah Secretary General also pointed out that Trump has failed to subjugate Iran, just as he has failed in Syria and Yemen, in addition to the Deal of the Century.

Nasrallah indicated that Trump’s project was to control oil fields in Iraq and to weaken its state. However, Daesh was defeated in Iraq thanks to the Iraqi position and the role of Soleimani, Al Muhandis and the Iraqi army in this regard, supported by religious references.

He also renewed his link between “America’s failure in the region and the upcoming American elections.”

“On 2/2/2020, the US started a new war in the region,” Nasrallah said, indicating that Soleiman as a pivotal figure within the axis of the resistance has made him a major target for his killing by the Americans.

Nasrallah said that the Iraqi honorable resistance men have declared that they will not let a single American soldier remain in Iraq.

The Party leader stressed that fair punishment for Soleimani and Al Muhandis’ assassination crime was the U.S. military presence in the region, utterly refusing any harm against American civilians.

“Qassem Soleimani concerns Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan… He concerns the nation,” Nasrallah said, indicating that Soleimani is not solely an Iranian affair.

Nasrallah said that the assassination crime targets the axis of the resistance.

“The American will leave the region if the peoples of our nation work on this goal,” he maintained.

“When the coffins of US soldiers and officers start to return to the United States, Trump shall realize that he has lost the region and the elections,” Nasrallah corroborated.

He declared that a just retribution for Soleimani’s blood is to expel US forces from our region.
