Rashid: “We Will Help Advise Regional Resistance and Hezbollah”
According to a report from the Fars News defense correspondent, Major General Gholam Ali Rashid, deputy chief of staff of the Armed Forces, this morning speaking to battalion commanders at a commemoration the Holy Defense [Iran-Iraq War] in the Milad Tower conference center, said that this war against us was not a local war, but this war was more important than the Vietnam War and Arab-Israeli wars, and he said, “The eight-years Holy Defense was a world war, and our veterans broke Saddam’s attempts to impose a regional and global agenda.
He said, “The situation in Palestine, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon... shows that there must be more intellectual and structural cohesion than before. Otherwise [the enemy] imposes a strategy of divide and conquer.”
Rashid said, “Some of our commanders are today in Iraq, with Lebanese Hezbollah and the Palestinian resistance movement to advise.”
