Iranian MPs Express Support for Hezbollah in Letter to Nasrallah

In a letter to the Secretary-General of the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement, 251 Iranian lawmakers extended both their congratulations and condolences over the recent martyrdom of a senior Hezbollah commander, and voiced Iran’s full support for the Movement.

The letter to Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah was read aloud at the end of an open parliamentary session on Monday May 16, according to a report by Mehr, as translated by IFP.

“Fighting simultaneously against the Zionist [Israeli] occupiers and hostile Takfiri groups is the art of great men,” Iranian parliamentarians said in the letter.

“Today, Hezbollah shines like a sun in the sky of jihad and resistance under your (Nasrallah’s) command,” they went on to say, expressing their hope that one day the light of resistance will cover the entire world.

“We, representatives of the Iranian nation, offer our congratulations and condolences over the martyrdom of the great fighter of the Resistance Front, Seyyed Zulfaqar, Seyyed Mustafa Badreddine, who spent part of his life in horrible prisons of the Zionist regime [Israel].”

They also expressed the country’s preparedness to provide the Resistance Front with any type of support.

Badreddine was martyred in a massive explosion near Damascus International Airport on Thursday, May 12, in an attack Hezbollah later said had been carried out by “Takfiri groups”.

He was the commander of Hezbollah’s military arm, its chief of intelligence, and advisor to the movement’s Secretary-General.
