Lebanon | Sayed Nasrallah: Soleimani's qualities are school to be studied and considered

Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah explained the characteristics of Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani stressing that his qualities are a school that should be studied and considered.

In an exclusive interview with Unews, Sayed Hassan said Haj Qasem used to go to fields, he is the one who usually came to Lebanon and meet resistance leaders, adding that he used to come and meet the brothers in the resistance face to face in the fields.

Sayed Hassan underlined that this has several advantages in management and leadership as it gives a sort of power to the fighters and expresses respect and admiration for them leaving moral and emotional effects.

He added that this enables him to listen and get to know all opinions and point of views including those of fighters at the battle fields.

Sayed Nasrallah continued "I remember that when he came on some visits, he sometimes suffered from toothache, and any person could not bear this pain. However, when we ask him to a doctor he refuses and says that we could get him after the end of the session. He used to stay, bear the pain, take decisions, and at the end go to the doctor."

Sayed Nasrallah said that "among the important characteristics is that he is persistent, diligent, which means he is constantly following up."

He continued stating Haj Qasem's qualities "extreme modesty, and this modesty was influencing", adding that "Haj Qasem was very humble even with ordinary individuals and ordinary people."

He said that the martyr was "the man present in adversity in the difficult days, for example in the ' 33-days July War' in 2006, he came from Tehran to Damascus and called us and said I want to come to you to the southern suburb [of Beirut], we told him that this was not even possible as bridges and roads were raided by Israeli warplanes," adding "but he was very determined and said that if you do not send cars to pick me up, I will come by myself. He insist on coming and he arrived, and stayed with us all the time."

He continued "in the events of Syria and Iraq confronting ISIS, the Iraqi brothers have been telling us that he has always been in the front line and walks in the front line. Of course this is an advantage, usually the generals sit in the back and run armies, teams or brigades,"
