Commander: Over 100,000 Hezbollah missiles ready to hit enemy targets in Israel

TEHRAN (FNA)- Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami disclosed that the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance group is in possession of over tens of thousands of missiles, which are all ready to launch and hit Israeli targets.

“Today 100,000 missiles in Lebanon are ready to be fired at occupied territories,” General Salami said in his pre-sermon speech at Tehran’s Friday prayers.

The Iranian commander underlined that the US support for Israel shows that this regime is not only an ally of Washington, but one of very close states for damaging Muslims.

“The Zionist regime is the joint product of the strategic policies of the US and Britain in the Muslim world, that are aimed at keeping the Muslim World backward, depressed, buried in history and dependent on the US policies,” he added.

Millions of Iranians took to the streets in all Iranian cities across the country on the International Quds Day on Friday to voice support for the Palestinian nation against the Israeli regime.

Iranians across the country, including in the capital Tehran, alongside other people around the world held massive anti-Israel rallies on the last Friday of Ramadan in opposition to the continued occupation of the Palestinian land by Israel.

The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.

International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Israel’s occupation of Beitul-Muqaddas. Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world, and especially in Iran.

Iran Tehran, demonstrators chanted slogans in condemnation of the Zionists’ crimes in the occupied Palestinian lands.
