Lebanon | Sayed Nasrallah: Military, material support of Haj Qasem precipitated the victory in 2000

Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah, in an exclusive interview with Unews, illustrated the role of Lieutenant General Qasem Soliemani in supporting and developing the resistance capabilities in Lebanon after being appointed as the commander of Al-Quds Forces of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

"From 1985 to 1998, which year Hajj Qasem held responsibility in Al-Quds Force, the development (of the resistance) was slow due to the limited military capabilities and the limited human capabilities." Sayed Nasrallah said.

He continued "When Haj Qasem held the responsibility of Al-Quds Force, and Haj Imad held the responsibility in almost the same year, he sought in Iran from the beginning to secure a large level of military and material capabilities and opened the doors to an advanced level of training to raise human competence."

He stressed that "there is no doubt that the victory in the year 2000 is not the result of only the previous two years, but rather the result of the quantitative and qualitative accumulation of the resistance's work in Lebanon since 1982. However, the last two years have had the specificity of the quantitative and qualitative development that precipitated the victory and defeated the enemy."
