Commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Qassem Soleimani expressed pleasure with in the success of the Lebanese resistance group, Hezbollah, in the recent parliamentary elections, noting that Saudi Arabia had spent a large amount of money to prevent this victory.
(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Commander of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, revealed that the Saudi regime spent 200 million dollars in the Lebanese parliamentary elections and only reaped failure. The news agency Fars quoted Major General Soleimani saying that "the recent Lebanese elections were a referendum as it was held in an atmosphere that everyone accused Hezbollah of interfering in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen and the region."
"The Arab countries and the GCC, including Saudi Arabia and the countries ruled by the ignorant, have named the purest Islamist party and the most glorious on the terrorism list. They also listed names of people who stirred up the hearts of Muslims like Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, who defeated the most important enemy in the Arab world, and described him as terrorists," Soleimani said.
Soleimani pointed out that "those who stand by Hezbollah, whether Sunnis or others, are described as agents of Iran, pointing out that the Lebanese elections were set up in such circumstances, besides Saudi Arabia spending 200 million dollars in a small environment in a short period was not simple.
"Hezbollah for the first time grabbed 74 of the 128 seats of the Lebanese parliament and now all the parliament members will be resistance forces," he added, saying that Hezbollah's candidate in Beirut for the first time in Lebanon's history gained the most votes in the city.
