Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Jazad Zarif has congratulated Lebanon on the 12th anniversary of the Arab country’s victory in a war waged by the Israeli regime in 2006.
The Iranian top diplomat offered his congratulations to the Lebanese nation and government in two separate messages to his Lebanese counterpart Gebran Bassil and Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah on Tuesday.
About 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians, lost their lives during the 33-day war on Lebanon.
According to the 629-page Winograd Report by the Israeli regime, Hezbollah fighters involved in defending Lebanon against the Israeli war defeated the enemy and Tel Aviv was compelled to withdraw without having achieved any of its objectives.
UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the 2006 war, calls on Israel to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
