Iran condemns killing of Hezbollah commander
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon condemned Wednesday the killing of a high-ranking Hezbollah commander earlier during the day and said such a “cowardly act” would not prevent the resistance from fighting Israel.

“I offer my condolences... over the martyrdom of brother Hassan Lakkis who had a long history of teaching the Zionist enemy harsh lessons in humiliation and whose actions were heroic acts in the face of [Israel],” Iran’s envoy Ghazanfar Roknabadi said in a message to Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah.

“While we adjoin this heroic martyr to the convoy of martyrs who sacrificed their lives to serve their nation and its sacred cause, mainly the Palestinian cause, we believe that these cowardly acts by the Zionist enemy and its agents would only make the resistance more determined to achieve its goals of eliminating [Israel] from existence,” he added.

Lakkis was assassinated overnight on his way back from work to his home in the Beirut suburb of Hadath. Hezbollah held Israel responsible for the killing.
