Tehran, 26 May_The second-in-command of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has hailed the 2000 liberation of southern Lebanon from the Israeli occupation as a “turning point” in the history of the Middle East, saying the victory shattered the Israeli military’s invincibility myth.

Liberation of southern Lebanon shattered Israel’s invincibility myth: Hezbollah deputy chiefHezbollah Deputy Secretary-General Sheikh Naim Qassem made the remarks on Monday as Lebanon was celebrating the 20th anniversary of the end of Israel’s occupation, Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Manar television network reported.

The official said thanks to the blow dealt to the Israeli military two decades ago, “we have moved from the stage of despair to hope, from surrender to resistance, from humiliation to honor, and from defeat to victory.”

Qassem said the liberation of southern Lebanon opened the door to more consecutive victories for Lebanon, Palestine and the entire region against the Zionist regime and American plots, including the creation of the Daesh terror group.

The historic triumph, he added, put an end to the Israeli military’s invincibility myth and helped strengthen the faith of the young generations in resistance and struggles towards liberating Palestine from the Israeli occupiers.
