Sayyed Nasrallah: Battle with ’ISIL’ Started, Qalamoun’s Major Hills in Our Hands
Hizbullah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered a speech at the beginning of the International conference on renovation ijtihad which was held on the 10th of June.
The secretary general, unlike many other speeches, addressed the topic of the conference, leaving the very last minutes to tackle the latest political events at the Lebanese-Syrian borders.
Touching on the developments in the Qalamoun area, Hizbullah Secretary General said "Over the past few days, great achievements were made in Qalamoun and, especially, the achievements made this morning. I can say that the high mountain tops and the high mountains, they are now, all of them, under the control of the Syrian Arab Army and the resistance forces."
"In the Arsal outskirts, over the past few days, this large advance took place and this defeat was inflicted on al-Nusra Front," he added.
He said that the al-Nusra front were badly defeated in the barren lands of Arsal, stressing that what is crucial now is the battles that began with ISIL or Daesh, who carried out a pre-emptive attack on the posts at the Lebanese-Syrian borders, particularly at the Qaa and Ras Baalbek areas.
"Yesterday, they attacked with hundreds of fighters and a high number of military vehicles. They attacked a number of positions for our brothers in the outskirts of Ras Baalbek on the Lebanese-Syrian border," Sayyed Nasrallah further said and noted, "The Resistance fighters with all courage and heroism confronted this attack."
He added that the attacks carried out by Daesh led to the killing of dozens of the terrorist takfiris who left numerous bodies behind before fleeing the area.
"We are determined to bring an end to the takfiri and terrorist presence of these groups despite the sacrifices to be paid, and this is not new but I reassure today that we are steadfast and have the decisive will to defeat the terrorist groups," he said, adding that it is only a matter of time until the mission is fulfilled.
On the topic of the conference, Hizbullah Secretary General elaborated on the role of Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei in being a true leader to the Muslims, who was facing threats and changing most of these into opportunities, as we see the fruits of that effort today with Iran being on the path of development on all the different levels.
"Not only is Imam Khamenei a great person, a religious authority and a leader, but also an Islamic intellect and thinker who played a vital role in the field of developing studies and reading history and sciences even outside the sphere of religion," he said.
In parallel, Sayyed Nasrallah confirmed that "the evidence to such a trait is his awareness of the different aspects whether cultural, economic, literary or other; to which he had paid attention since very young age."
"Another example to Imam Khamenei's special attention to culture and education is his yearly presence at the book fair, his follow up and meetings with people from different majors and fields of study, to stay updated and aware of their problems and matters and even discuss these and help find solutions."
Sayyed Nasrallah advised people to get more acquainted to the personality of Imam Khamenei, who enjoys different characteristics at once that make him special in terms of leadership.
