“Hezbollah doesn’t need our weapons and it is a legitimate political formation in Lebanon and an important force in the main pivot of resistance and they are sufficiently equipped with financial resources and arms and if they need something, they have the necessary capabilities and self-sufficiency,” Qassemi told reporters in Tehran on Monday.
He said such allegations are leveled by certain regional countries and the US to start a blame game against Iran, given the current situation in Lebanon.
Qassemi’s statements came in reaction to Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon’s urgent letter to the Security Council members claiming that he has found the route through which Iran sends weapons to Hezbollah.
The allegations came as Hezbollah forces have been fighting along with the Syrian army against the terrorist groups stationed near the Lebanese borders and inside Syria since the start of the crisis in 2011.
Latest reports from Syria said on Sunday that a large column of Syrian army soldiers and the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters arrived in Southeastern Aleppo to take part in an imminent large-scale operation in the region and further move towards Raqqa.
A field source said that a long military convoy of army men and Hezbollah fighters has arrived in Southeastern Aleppo to join their comrades to start an imminent operation against ISIL near Aleppo’s borders with Raqqa province.
