Nasrallah: Fair Response to Soleimani Killing is Ouster of U.S. Forces from Region

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Sunday said that the response to the assassination of Iran’s top general Qassem Soleimani should be nothing short of the ouster of all U.S. forces from the region.

“We are not scared or angry and we see a chance to get rid of hegemony and occupation,” Nasrallah said in a televised address during a rally that Hizbullah held in Beirut’s southern suburbs to commemorate Soleimani, Iraqi paramilitary leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and their companions, who were killed in a U.S. drone strike in Iraq on Thursday night.

“A fair punishment for the sake of Qassem Soleimani is a fair punishment for the sake of Imad Mughniyeh, Abbas al-Moussawi, Mustafa Badreddine and all the martyrs of this nation,” Nasrallah said, mentioning the names of slain Hizbullah leaders.

“The ignorant Trump and the fools around him do not realize what they have done. Days will tell them,” Nasrallah added.

“When the coffins of U.S. soldiers and officers start returning to the United States, the Trump administration will realize that it has lost the region and the elections,” he said.

“The fair punishment is the removal of U.S. military presence from the region,” Nasrallah noted.

He said the U.S. army “killed these people and it will pay the price.”

“We do not at all mean the American people and citizens across our region,” Nasrallah noted.

He warned that any harm against U.S. civilians anywhere “would serve Trump's policies.”

“It is up to anyone from the axis of resistance to deliver a fair punishment after Soleimani’s assassination and Iran will not request anything from its allies and friends,” he pointed out.

Noting that if the U.S. forces “get expelled from the region, the liberation of Jerusalem will become attainable,” Hizbullah’s leader added that Israel’s enemies might not need to start a battle to achieve that.

“The Israelis will pack their clothes and leave,” he suggested.

He added: “There is a responsibility on the shoulders of the axis of resistance to retaliate… Qassem Soleimani is not a purely Iranian affair, Qassem Soleimani concerns Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan and every country.”

Addressing Iraqis, Nasrallah said U.S. forces must be expelled and “Iraq must be liberated.”

“The honorable Iraqi resistance fighters will not allow a single American soldier to remain in Iraq” should parliamentary action fail to oblige the U.S.-led forces to leave, Nasrallah suggested.

“We hope the Iraqi parliament will approve a law calling for the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq,” Nasrallah said.

Iraq’s parliament approved the bill later in the day.

Separately, Nasrallah revealed that he had met with Soleimani in Lebanon a week prior to the deadly U.S. strike that killed the Iranian commander.

“I warned him that there was talk about him in the U.S. media and told him that that was a precursor to his assassination. He laughed and shrugged off the possibility,” Nasrallah said.

“This was not a separate assassination operation. This is the start of a new U.S. war in the region,” Nasrallah noted.

He also said that “a new era and a new history” started in the region after Soleimani’s assassination.

Separately, he revealed that U.S. envoy David Satterfield had “threatened Lebanese officials” during a recent visit to Lebanon, asking them to “remove resistance installations from the Bekaa and giving them a 15-day deadline.”

“He threatened that Israel would launch strikes” but warnings launched by Hizbullah foiled the scheme, Nasrallah said.

“America failed in Lebanon. All the sanctions, incitement and funds did not achieve anything,” he added.

Nasrallah: There is a responsibility on the shoulders of the axis of resistance to retaliate.

Did this Iranian get the approval of the Lebanese government or people to shoulder the responsibility of such retaliation?

Iran can’t defeat America... it couldn’t even defeat poorly armed peasants in Syria.

The lack of a swift retaliation will prove to the world and to the Iranian people how the bearded terrorists are weak. They will be overthrown by their own people.

This @POS should mind his own iranian business and stop interfering in other countries affairs.

Thumb farsical.resistance 05 January 2020, 16:33

Are you guys watching this. The scene is so touching. Thousands of sycophants chanting and shaking their fists in a choreography recommencement of a North Korean rally, while Nasrallah speechifys remotely on a big screen from his hiding place in the sewers. A nice touche, above his right shoulder a picture of the martyr Suleimani with his boyfriend. Speaking of which. Nasrallah keeps peddling the triumphs of martyrdom sending thousands of poor impressionable brainwashed young men to their death while he "heroically" hides in the sewers. File this under do as I say not as I do.

Americans soldiers are foreigners but the Iranians are not foreigners in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq?

Why these few hundred soldiers scare you but you have thousands of militia men.

Did you retaliate for the assisination of Bachir Gemayel the president of the country you lived in? It was OK for the Syrian to assisinate Rene Mouawad too?

Go back and live in Iran you filthy terrorist.

'It has carried out its military campaigns under the auspices of Lebanon national Government'

and were its terrorist military operations/campaigns approved by the Lebanese government it is part of ya irani? Are you aware the Lebanese government claims it has a dissociation policy of non-interference ya irani?

Missing cedars 06 January 2020, 14:03

Hizbollah is a state within a state. That's is illegal and not legit in any country in the world. The type of arms they hide and carry supersede the state army. They are not expressing their 2nd amendment with registered guns under the state law, they have from another foreign country arms that equate the state army, in other words they can take over the state anytime they wish but then they would loose because a super power like America will totally eliminate them and send them for good to Iran. Why? They prefer to hide behind the government to induce their cancer nationally and internationally. In other words play the militia war...because an army cannot face another army, it would be win or loose for one of them. Loose in their case to face Israel or America.
