Tehran, Jan 13, 2020 (ICANA) - President of the Islamic Parliament of Iran Ali Larijani referred to US' aim to blow Resistance by assassinating IRGC Quds Force Commander Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani, saying Iran's support of Resistance will not be stopped after General Soleimani's martyrdom.
Larijani made the remarks in a meeting with Chairman of Lebanon Agriculture and Tourism Parliamentary Committee Hamid Ayoub.
He described General Soleimani's martyrdom as an important issue for Iran and the Resistance Axis, saying he was a great figure and was regarded as a back for Resistance.
He added that the assassination operation has been conducted by US and the Zionist regime of Israel.
The US assumed that it can interrupt Iran's support of the Resistance by assassinating Iranian commander.
This is while it was a gross and perpetual mistake by the US and the Zionist regime of Israel, he noted.
Referring to assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists by US and Israel, Larijani said they imagined that their act would stop Iran nuclear activities but our progress was accelerated.
He went on to say that the new accidents happened in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon were designed by the US and the Zionist regime of Israel.
Meanwhile, Ayoub extended condolences over General Soleimani's martyrdom, saying despite hard conditions and cruel sanctions, Iran has stood against Arrogance and has been able to foil enemies' conspiracy.
He noted that Iran's victories were due to its wise leadership and also discernment of the Iranian officials.
He expressed his certainty that Iran will continue its support of the Resistance Axis.
