Iran-backed Hezbollah says Iran will “punish” Israel

In his speech on "Quds" Day, Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of Lebanese Hezbollah, stated that Iran will respond decisively to Israel's killing of IRGC members in Damascus.

Nasrallah stated that Mohammad Reza Zahedi, commander of the IRGC's Quds Force, was a significant contributor to the regional resistance movement.

Who was Mohammad Reza Zahedi, the senior Iranian general killed in Damascus?

“Be certain, be sure, that the Iranian response to the targeting of the consulate in Damascus is definitely coming against Israel,” he said.

Zahedi was reportedly responsible for the Quds Force’s operations in Syria and Lebanon, for Iranian militias there, and for ties with Hezbollah, making him the most senior commander of Iranian forces in the two countries. The IRGC is a US-designated terrorist organization.

The Secretary General expressed his condolences to the leader of Tehran regime, Ali Khamenei, on the death of Zahedi and others.

It should be recalled that on April 2, 7 members of the IRGC commander and senior officials were killed in an attack on the Iranian Consulate in Damascus.

Israel justified the attack by saying that the building had lost its diplomatic status due to the fact that it had been converted into IRGC activities.
