Member of Iran’s Expediency Discernment Council and former nuclear negotiator Said Jalili speaking in a gathering downtown Tehran said "The Iraqi nation will keep united to defend their territorial integrity; and they will inflict such a harsh defeat on the hirelings, the US, and the Zionist hirelings in Iraq.”
"The enemies were witness how our nation found a new life and power and how the progress was precipitated. But that was not limited to Iran; it turned into a sample which then multiplied. Some time a nation, relying on this sample, managed to free Khorramshahr, another day they saw southern Lebanon freed,” he said.
"They are seeing today that it is not just Iran which is able to gain such victories, but by taking that very sample as an inspiration, it frees the south of Lebanon and beats the Zionist enemy in the 33-day war. They saw that using the same example our friends in Hamas and Islamic Jihad beat the Zionist regime in the 22-day war which was then followed by victory in the 8-day war,” Jalili exclaimed.
