SANA’A -Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of Hezbollah, has on Monday said that the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Marja Sayyid Ali Khamenei, is the Leader of the resistance camp against the US and Israel.
“The leader of our camp today is Imam Khamenei, based in the Islamic Republic of Iran, and America is trying to besiege him,” Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah said in his speech on Monday night to mark the holiday Ashura, which is the commemoration of the Battle of Karbala.
“We are fighting a major battle and America and Israel are trying to besiege our camp,” he added.
Nasrallah vowed to continue the resistance and to never abandon Imam Khamenei and his position.
“Tonight and tomorrow we will say to Trump and Netanyahu: we are a nation whose will will never be deated, neither by siege, nor by sanctions, nor by poverty, nor by hunger.”
Ashura takes place on the 10th day of the Islamic month of Muharram, and marks the Battle of Karbala in 680 CE, in which Imam Husayn, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, was murdered by forces of the Umayyad leader and self-declared Caliph Yazid.
