IRG Quds Force Deputy Commander: The Resistance Will Continue Its Path to Completely Wipe out ‘Israel’

By Staff

The Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guard [IRG’s] Quds Force, Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Fallahzadeh, confirmed that the Resistance will continue its path until ‘Israel’ is completely wiped out.

Brigadier General Fallahzadeh, speaking in the forty-day anniversary of the martyrdom of Brigadier General Mohamed Ali Haq Bayn, one of the leaders of the Battle for the Liberation of Nubbul and al-Zahraa in Syria, noted that the Palestinians had startled the usurped Zionists and were able to attack the entire Zionist geographical area using various rockets, missiles and rocket range.

The Quds Force deputy commander explained that ‘Israel’ should know that this is just the beginning and that the Resistance will continue its path until ‘Israel’ is completely wiped out.

He pointed out that “it is our duty today to know our enemies well and to attack them with insight, patience and integrity as long as we live.”

General Fallahzadeh also mentioned the importance of the people’s broad and enthusiastic participation in the elections, noting that: “Our Jihad was donating money one day and was reporting the other day, and today our Jihad is the broad and intensive participation in the elections to choose the most suitable candidate, and this is what the martyrs, Hajj Qassem Soleimani, Brigadier Haq Bayn, and all the free and oppressed in the world seek.”

Brigadier General Haq Bayn commanded the 16th Al-Quds Revolutionary Guard Division in northern Iran, after which he was appointed adviser to the Commander of the IRG Ground Force and commander of the central headquarters of “Imam Al-Hussein” [peace be upon him] of the IRG Ground Force.

He was also one of the leaders of the battle for the liberation of Nubbul and al-Zahraa from the hands of the Takfiri terrorists in Syria, one of the comrades-in-arms of the martyr Lieutenant-General Hajj Qassem Soleimani, and one of the prominent leaders of the Resistance Fronts in Syria and Iraq.

Hamas Warns “Israel” of another Round of Confrontation

Hamas Warns “Israel” of another Round of Confrontation

By Staff, Agencies

The Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas warned the “Israeli” entity over its daily incursions into the occupied West Bank, saying “another round of confrontation” could take place if Tel Aviv does not end acts of violation against the Palestinian people.

Speaking to Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency on Friday during a visit to the Tunisian capital, Tunis, the movement’s spokesperson, Sami Abu Zihri, stressed that “Israel” “does not respect agreements and carries out daily incursions into the cities of the West Bank, and the threat of displacement of the residents of Al-Quds is still present.”

“It is likely that “another round of confrontation” will occur if the ‘Israeli’ entity continues such violations,” he added.

Abu Zihri further added that the ceasefire between “Israel” and Hamas is still holding since May 21 but its future depends on the apartheid entity, adding that his movement will respect the agreement as long as “Israel” does.

“If ‘Israel’ does not comply, it is natural for us to confront it,” the Hamas official said.

In parallel, he emphasized that the sides reached “a mutual and simultaneous ceasefire agreement, not a truce,” which was “fragile, due to the bloody and criminal nature of the occupation.”

On another level, Abu Zihri welcomed recent talks between Egyptian intelligence chief Abbas Kamel and Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar in Gaza about a possible Hamas-“Israel” prisoner swap deal.

The Hamas spokesman stressed the importance of the reconstruction of the besieged Gaza Strip which was an “essential part of the dialogue that paved the way for the ceasefire.

He, however, emphasized that Hamas would refuse to link the issue of prisoners to the reconstruction aid.

“The file of Gaza’s reconstruction is linked to the outcomes of the ‘Israeli’ aggression. As for the prisoner exchange deal, its context is related to the release of Palestinian prisoners,” Abu Zihri pointed out.

It’s worth mentioning that more than 7,000 Palestinian prisoners are currently held in some 17 “Israeli” jails, with dozens of them serving multiple life sentences.

Over 350 detainees, including women and minors, are under “Israel’s” “administrative detention”.

Abu Zihri warned against “any slowdown or delay in the reconstruction of Gaza” and suggested Egypt to lead the reconstruction project given the North African country’s “experience and competence.”

Elsewhere in his remarks, Abu Zihri said Hamas leaders have praised Iran for supporting the resistance.

“Iran has given a lot for the resistance, and we appreciate its stance on serving the Palestinian cause,” he reiterated, noting that “Hamas is keen to maintain relations with all Arab and Muslim states and not to foster a relationship with one country at the expense of another.”

‘Israel’ Advised to Learn From Gaza Failure, Prepare For Hezbollah

‘Israel’ Advised to Learn From Gaza Failure, Prepare For Hezbollah

By Staff, Breaking Defense

In wake of the embarrassing ‘Israeli’ defeat, former Commander of US Marine Corps Forces Command LtGen Richard Natonski, USMC and Jonathan Ruhe coauthored a piece for Breaking Defense entitled “Learn From Gaza, Prepare For Hezbollah”:

With a ceasefire announced in Gaza, it’s crucial to apply the lessons-learned to a likely future conflict with Hezbollah, and likely Iran, in Lebanon and beyond, the authors said.

Earlier, the Jewish Institute for National Security of America [JINSA] has laid out in a comprehensive report that this looming war will be unprecedentedly destructive. Hezbollah’s arsenals are an order of magnitude more potent than anything in Gaza, including at least 130,000 rockets and missiles that will overpower ‘Israel’s’ world-class multi-layered air system network.

Since July 2006 ‘Israeli’ war on Lebanon, Hezbollah rebuilt its arsenal, possessing now more firepower than 95 percent of the world’s conventional militaries, and more rockets and missiles than all European NATO members combined. As is the case resistance groups in Gaza, the vast majority of these are unguided short-range rockets, though Hezbollah likely has several times more of these than the estimated 30,000 short-range rockets and mortars in Gaza at the start of the last round of conflict.

Hezbollah also has thousands of more powerful unguided medium- and long-range rockets, many of them ranging all of the ‘Israeli’-occupied territories, compared to several hundred at most in Gaza that can reach central ‘Israel,’ including Tel Aviv, and only parts of the north. These longer ranges allow Hezbollah to disperse its arsenal throughout Lebanon, including Beirut and Beqaa Valley, covering much greater area than Gaza, according to the article.

And unlike anything in the arsenals of Hamas or Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah wields dozens or hundreds of precision missiles, the authors went on to say. “Because Iron Dome focuses on projectiles threatening built-up areas, ‘Israel’s’ challenges will grow proportionally with the precision munition stocks of Iran and Hezbollah.”

This encircling “ring of fire” from Lebanon and elsewhere could overwhelm the Zionist entity’s multi-layered air systems with barrages larger than anything yet seen. To be sure, Iron Dome held its own in recent Gaza conflicts. It did so even as the rate of incoming fire increased from 200 rockets daily in 2014 to as many as 400-500 per day in 2021, including 130-rocket barrages, and even as fully half of the recent rocket launches threatened populated areas [up from 20 percent in 2014].

But Hezbollah will launch as many as 3,000 rockets, missiles and drones daily at the outset of the next war – nearly as many as in the entire 2006 and 2014 wars – and at a sustained rate of around 1,000 per day, threatening to oversaturate not just Iron Dome but the Zionist entity’s other air systems as well, according to the article.

“Hezbollah gained valuable battlefield experience since its last war with ‘Israel.’ It learned brutal combined-arms warfare in Syria, including in dense urban cauldrons like Aleppo, and now boasts advanced UAV, air defense, anti-tank, subterranean and other capabilities.”

Unlike Gaza resistance groups, whose threats of cross-border incursions were minimal in the last conflict, Hezbollah will deploy these assets not just defensively throughout Lebanon, but also offensively in concerted ground invasions against northern ‘Israel,’ they added.

The ensuing conflict will greatly strain the ‘Israeli’ occupation forces and the Zionist population. The Zionist military will have to prioritize countering launchers, suggesting more than 1,000 airstrikes daily in Lebanon, Syria, Gaza and perhaps farther afield, compared to roughly 200 daily in the latest bout of fighting.

The Zionist entity’s critical infrastructure and cities will depend on passive ‘defense’ measures and luck. Thousands of rockets and missiles will target industrial, electricity, water and transportation chokepoints, and the densely-populated occupied coastal heartland. The result could be mass casualties, enormous physical destruction and severe disruptions to basic services.

The damage to ‘Israel’ likely will be unprecedented.

Meanwhile, the authors advise the United States and ‘Israel’ that they must ensure sufficient co-production of Iron Dome systems and interceptors to mitigate Hezbollah’s sheer mass of unguided and short-range rockets and artillery, as well as “David’s Sling” and Arrow air defense systems to counter Hezbollah’s longer-range and precision arsenals, including drones and ballistic and cruise missiles.

Islamic Jihad to Al-Ahed: Quds Sword Imposed New Equations, Resistance Making Confident Steps to Defeat ‘Israel’

Islamic Jihad to Al-Ahed: Quds Sword Imposed New Equations, Resistance Making Confident Steps to Defeat ‘Israel’

Al-Ahed Exclusive

The leader of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, Daoud Shehab, said the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Resistance and the subsequent liberation of southern Lebanon coincided with the victory of Operation Al-Quds Sword.

According to Shehab, the victory carries important implications. The most significant of these is that the resistance persevered – the people of the nation decided not to retreat, and the resistance, whether in Lebanon or Palestine, is recording achievements and accumulating victories in the face of the “Israeli” enemy.

“There is no way back. We are making confident steps to defeat this entity and liberate every inch of the land of Palestine,” Shehab said in an interview with Al-Ahed News.

He pointed out that the Al-Quds Sword battle bore the meaning of the liberation of all Palestine.

“This unification in all the arenas and fields of jihad and resistance throughout occupied Palestine gives an important signal and sends hope again that we are moving towards the fulfillment of God’s promise, the achievement of the great victory, and the defeat of the occupation from all the land of Palestine as it was defeated from southern Lebanon in 2000 and Gaza in 2005,” he stressed.

Shehab highlighted the expansion of the achievements of the resistance and the nation’s collective awareness that the main priority is confronting the “Israeli” enemy.

“When Al-Quds was the main title, all Palestinian patriots met in this confrontation, and all attempts by the occupation to sow discord and cracks within the Palestinian society failed.”

The leader of the Islamic Jihad movement pointed out that “the battle of the Al-Quds Sword represents an essential course to victory and liberation.”

Shehab explained that “the battle of the Al-Quds Sword established new equations in the open conflict between the resistance and the enemy, the most important of which is that Al-Quds entered into the rules of engagement. Therefore, we are now facing a new challenge – an aggression on All-Quds will be met with a response by the resistance.”

“The second issue is that the occupation does not surrender easily and does not yield easily to the insistence of the resistance. Ahead of us is a long journey with Al-Quds as the objective. When we called this battle Al-Quds Sword, the name implies that this sword is now in the hands of the resistance that is ready to defend the city of Al-Quds.”

He also stressed that the resistance is ready at any time to make sacrifices and engage in confrontations in order to defend occupied Al-Quds. He confirmed that the resistance throughout the Palestinian homeland from its sea to its river from its north to its south is fully prepared to assume the responsibility of defending the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

“We face two main constants in the Palestinian situation. Al-Quds is a fundamental constant that cannot be overlooked or abandoned. Secondly, the resistance is an authentic expression of the Palestinian situation in which our people live under occupation,” Shehab said.

“There is nothing that can unite the Palestinians in the stage of national liberation and occupation but the resistance,” he added, pointing out that other emergency options are futile and have not succeeded. Shehab remains convinced that any national political project has no value unless it’s based on resistance under occupation.

“We protect the state of unity by protecting the resistance. The resistance is a basic pillar to achieve internal Palestinian unity and maintain the continuous mobilization with the status of Al-Quds and what it represents in the Arab and Islamic conscience as part of our faith and our religion.”

Shehab concluded by saying that “what happened is not limited to the Palestinian interior in Gaza, the West Bank, or the occupied interior, but the Palestinian diaspora also got involved, and this is an issue that cannot be ignored.”

Sayyed Nasrallah: “Deal Of Century” had Fallen, Israel End Is Closer

 May 26, 2021

Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah

Al-Manar Website Editor

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah delivered a speech Tuesday on the anniversary of the Resistance and Liberation Day in which he congratulated the Palestinian resistance for its great victory.

“We are now celebrating two great victories, the 25th of May 2000 in Lebanon and the 21st of May 2021 in Gaza,” Sayyed Nasrallah initiated, saluting the bravery of the Palestinian resistance in the latest battle.

His eminence considered that “the liberation that the Lebanese people attained in 2000 was dedicated to Palestine because it is where our goal lies, and this victory shifted the strategic path of the Palestinian cause and the conflict with the enemy.”

As he remembered the martyrs who fell on this path and reminded of the great role that Hajj Qassem Suleimani played in supporting the resistance, Sayyed Nasrallah praised the “historic stance” of the Palestinian resistance in standing up for Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood violations, assuring that “the displacement taking place in Sheikh Jarrah is not a normal development considering the symbolism of this neighborhood. It is a step forward in Judaizing Al-Quds”.

“The Palestinian resistance took a firm and historic decision after witnessing the violations that the occupation practiced in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, and the cause of this battle was the arrogance and stupidity of the enemy as well as its miscalculations and underestimation of the resistance,” he said, adding that “despite all that is taking place in Palestine, some Arab countries are still normalizing and working on improving the Israeli entity’s image”.

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that “the Israelis assumed that the Judaization procedures in Al-Quds will only be faced with statements and denunciations. They didn’t expect that the resistance will take this historic decision.”

“Gaza surprised the friend and enemy with its threat in defense of Al-Quds… This historic development in “Al-Quds Sword” must be highly appreciated as Gaza has engaged in this battle not to protect itself or its own people but to protect Al-Quds,” he added.

Hezbollah SG asserted that “The Gazan people were ready to defend and sacrifice themselves for Al-Quds, Al-Aqsa mosque and the nation’s sanctities,” addressing the Israeli enemy “you should be aware that violating Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa mosque in unlike any other violation you practice.”

“The enemy’s leadership must repeat its calculations after the war on Gaza… and any violation to Al-Aqsa or Islamic sanctities in general must not be faced by the resistance in Gaza only. The equation must be a regional war for Al-Quds,” his eminence warned, stressing that “when Islamic and Christian sanctities face threats there won’t be any red lines.”

“In the latest battle the whole world felt it was standing in front of a united Palestinian people that moved in one direction toward one goal. Al-Quds Sword revived the Palestinian cause around the world and imposed it on social media. It revived the culture and spirit of resistance as an only path to liberate the land,” he further stated.

Moreover, Sayyed Nasrallah considered that “Al-Quds Sword” battle hit hard the normalization path as well as the normalizing countries and their media.

“After this battle we can say that the “deal of the century” had fallen bringing out the unity of the Palestinian people inside the occupied territories and reminding the world of Israel’s ugly face being an apartheid which kills innocent people and commits massacres. It further re-pointed the conflict compass towards the real enemy,” he said.

Listing the great achievements of “Al-Quds Sword” battle, Sayyed Nasrallah also stated that “it paralyzed the security of the Zionist entity and disfigured its image as a safe entity for businesses and investors. It imposed a confrontation between the occupation and the Palestinians inside the lands of 1948, which Israel considered an existential threat. The Israeli entity failed to prevent the launch of missiles in their announced timing, which is considered a data and intelligence failure,” adding to the list that Israel had failed to destroy the unlaunched missile supply in Gaza.

His eminence reassured that “the latest battle revived historic Palestine from the sea to the river and reflected a rise of faith in the choice of resistance.”

He further considered that “the last 10 years were the hardest on our region, but the steadfastness of the resistance axis in the region has been a major defense and uplift for the victory of Palestine.”

In this context, his eminence clarified that “Israel is unlike any other state because it is an “established state” not a “normally existing one”, this is why security is basic for its existence… because when the Israeli people feel insecure in the entire Palestinian land, the simplest thing for them to do is pack and leave.”

“If the Iron Dome was a success Netanyahu would have bragged about it and marketed it everywhere,” he added.

On Lebanon, Hezbollah SG considered that the resistance has never been any stronger in terms of power, number, expertise, readiness, preparation, faith, courage and morale.

As he warned the occupation of any miscalculation in Lebanon, he considered that “Lebanon is strong with its presidency and with the equation it enforced that is “army, people and resistance”.

His eminence further re-offered his condolences to the family of Mohammad Tahhan, the 21-year-old Lebanese protestor who was killed by the Israeli Army on the southern Lebanese borders, warning the Israeli enemy that “his name was added to the list… we will be patient but we will not disregard this bloodshed”.

In conclusion, Sayyed Nasrallah assured that Al-Quds is closer and the end of the Israeli entity is closer, saluting the stance of the Yemeni people in solidarity with Palestine.

“It brings tears to my eyes when I see the solidarity of the Yemeni people and their leader Sayyed Abdul Malak Al-Huthi who addressed the Palestinians saying “we are ready to share our bread with you”.”

Sayyed Nasrallah asked “do you even have bread to share with the Palestinian people?”

TURN THE OTHER CHEEK? ISRAEL’S SAVAGE RESPONSE TO GAZA’S ROCKETS

Turn The Other Cheek? Israel's Savage Response To Gaza's Rockets
Chaos is returning to the West Bank, as rockets are raining down on both sides of the Gaza fence.

On the afternoon of May 10th, after days of violent protests in Jerusalem’s Mount Temple, Hamas’ military wing gave Israeli authorities a deadline to withdraw the police and release the detained Palestinians. As it was expected, Tel Aviv did not respect the ultimatum.

As soon as it passed, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group reportedly launched about 30 rockets from the Gaza Strip towards Israel. An ATGM also targeted a vehicle, injuring one civilian.

The Palestinians called their operation the “Al Quds Sword”, while the Israeli response is titled “Guardian of the Walls”.

The mighty Iron Dome intercepted most of missiles launched from Gaza towards Israeli Ashkelon and other areas, but its coverage is strained. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have recently deployed several more batteries in the south and bolstered it with more radars and launchers. There is ample footage showing rockets targeting civilian, and not open, areas.

In a swift response, an Israeli UAV was launched towards Gaza. The strike reportedly resulted in the death of at least 9 civilians, 3 of which were children.

This was not the “crushing blow” Tel Aviv expected it to be, as rockets continued raining down from Gaza towards Israeli territory. During this night only, over 200 rockets have been reportedly launched from Gaza.

In response, the IDF claim they have killed 15 Hamas members and have struck 130 Hamas and Islamic Jihad targets. The IDF reportedly destroyed several rocket launchers, at least 2 military posts, 2 tunnels, a Hamas military intel facility and alleged weapon manufacturing and storage sites. The IDF did not mention that the strikes have resulted in the deaths of dozens of civilians.

The numbers of casualties, as well as material damage caused by the hostilities from both sides, are not comparable.

The rocket exchange has already been marked as the biggest escalation in the West Bank in recent years.

It comes down to speculation how likely a further deterioration into chaos is. Tel Aviv appears to be dead set on indiscriminately targeting alleged Hamas targets, regardless of civilian collateral damage. The Palestinian groups in Gaza could potentially hope that the “international community” will not sit idly by and watch as Israel’s incredibly severe response takes place, and so far it appears they are hoping in vain.
