Soleimani Says Hizbullah Now Has '74 MPs' in Parliament

W460

A top Iranian general has praised Hizbullah and its allies for making significant gains in last month's parliamentary elections, claiming that “Hizbullah has won 74 out of parliament's 128 seats.”

General Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's elite fighting Quds Force, also accused Saudi Arabia of paying $200 million in support of certain Lebanese parties during the elections.

Lebanese media aired a video posted on social media showing Soleimani saying that Hizbullah's electoral victory came at a time when some Arab countries labeled it and its leaders as terrorists.

Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri said later Monday that the comments are "regrettable," adding that interfering in Lebanon's internal affairs is "not in their (Iran's) interest, nor those of Lebanon or the region."

"accused Saudi Arabia of paying $200 million in support of certain Lebanese parties during the elections"

Unlike what Iran has done in the Iraqi elections:)!

أثار فيديو تم تداوله، الأربعاء، على مواقع التواصل الاجتماعي الريبة في الأوساط العراقية، لاسيما بعد أن أظهرت اللقطات صناديق ممتلئة بالدولارات، قيل إنها أتت من إيران، وعليها صور لقائد منظمة بدر وزعيم ائتلاف الفتح في العراق #هادي_العامري.

وظهر في الفيديو صوت متحدث زعم أنه موظف في منفذ المنذرية الحدودي في محافظة #ديالى، وقال إن تلك الأموال كانت في طريقها إلى تحالف الفتح الذي يضم فصائل من الحشد الشعبي (تعرف بولائها لإيران)، إلا أنه تم ضبطها عند المنفذ، مناشداً رئيس الوزراء حيدر العبادي الإسراع في إرسال جهات أمنية للوقوف على حقيقة الأمر..

It appears Soleimani considers the FPM and 'Armenian' ministers part of the Hezbollah block. Shows how much respect the Iranians have for the Christians of Lebanon.

So Bassil's 'Strong Lebanon' coalition and Miqati's block are part of Hezbollah now;) Surely, Bassil will soon comment on this ridiculous statement by his boss in Iran.

He’s the filth at war with Rouhani, he’s the one behind the attack on Israel against his president’s orders. He’s the dood that needs to be taken down because his country is starving yet he focuses on spreading khomeynism and terrorism.

Suleimani is 100% correct when he says hezbollah now has '74 MPs' in Parliament' essentially giving them control of Lebanon's legislative body.

Special thanks go to Hariri and Geagea for championing the 'proportional' representation election law.

Enjoy the new found democracy hezbollah style.

Just shows you what Iran thinks of the Lebanese president and his FPM strong coalition;)

He is only claiming the obvious, Iran hijacked the country and it was so easy for them to do. Now we have the next ten years of Iranian hegemony to deal with. And for the very few who are enamored with Iran, just look at the state of the countries they usurped.
