BINT JBEIL, Lebanon (ST)-Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasralla thanked Syria and Iran for supporting Lebanon and the Lebanese resistance during the war in July 2006.
Marking the tenth anniversary of the victory of the Lebanese resistance over the Israeli enemy in July war, Nasrallah addressed crowds in the south Lebanese town of Bint Jbeil saying "July victory hampered the US New Middle East Project and foiled the goals of the Israeli aggression which aimed at undermining the resistance axis."
On July 12th 2006, the Zionist enemy launched a brutal war against Lebanon. The aggression lasted for 33 days, in which resistance fighters heroically fought the occupation forces.
The town of Bint Jbeil witnessed one of the main battles against tithe Israeli soldiers who launched a ground incursion into the Lebanese territories.

Al-Manar Website quoted Hizbollah Secretary General as stressing that the Zionist entity was hit during this war in its spirit, arrogance and existence. He recalled his famous saying that “Israel is weaker than spider web.”
Talking about the repercussions of July war on Israel, Narallah said the Israeli army's losses led to distrust between the army, political command and the Israeli people.
Deterrence of resistance bolstered after July war
He added that following July war the deterrence of the resistance was bolstered and the Israeli military doctrine, which is based on swift victories, fighting in the enemy’s land, calm home front, has fallen, noting that Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanya himself said that after July war things changed and it’s clear now that Israel is no longer an invincible state.
US Created Daesh to crush resistance
He pointed out that Obama's administration has created "Deash" terrorist takfiri organization and its affiliated groups in order to crush resistance axis after the US New Middle East project was foiled thanks to the steadfastness of resistance.
Nasrallah went on to say that the United States used some regimes in the region, particularly Saudi Arabia, to support terrorist takfiri groups which the US created, funded, armed and trained by the Arabs' money, referring to the US presidential candidate Donald Trump's remarks in this regard.
He vowed that Hezbollah will go on with its battles against terrorists in the Syrian city of Aleppo and in every place where resistance presence is necessary .
He clarified that "Deash" and other terrorist groups are merely a card to be used in the US presidential elections, because the terrorist groups were used by the Americans for own political agenda and today it is time for getting rid of them.
He urged all the terrorist groups in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and other countries to realize that they were used to kill people of the region, destroy its countries and undermine the axis of resistance to serve the interests of "Israel" and America.

Sayyed Nasrallah: 2006 War Hit Zionist Entity’s Spirit, Arrogance, Existence
As he stressed that the defeat era has gone, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said that the Zionist entity was hit during 2006 war in its spirit, arrogance and existence.
Addressing crowds who were marking the tenth anniversary of July victory in the southern town of Bint Jbeil, Sayyed Nasrallah recalled his famous saying that “Israel is weaker than spider web," The resistance leader said that the resistance had foiled the goals of the Israeli aggression in 2006 war, detailing the strategic military achievements secured following July war.
Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that the resistance rockets can reach everywhere in the occupied territories.
On the other hand, Hezbollah Chief stressed that the US has created the Takfiri ISIL group in a bid to crush the resistance, after they had failed to do so in 2006.
Sayyed Nasrallah also vowed that Hezbollah will go on with its battles especially in the Syria’s city of Aleppo.
2006 War Historical Event to Zionists
After he thanked all those who stood by resistance in July, 2006 war, Sayyed Nasrallah said that this event is considered as historical one by Zionists, noting that many of the Israeli officials have been interested in talking about the decisive repercussions of this war.
“When we talk about victory in July war we shall talk about main title, which is foiling the Israeli goals of the aggression.”
The US-Israeli aggression was aimed at crushing the resistance after disarming it, excluding Hezbollah from the local and political life in Lebanon, turning the area south of Litani river into a buffer zone, and deploying multinational force in the country’s south and along the border with Syria, Sayyed Nasrallah summed up the goals of the Israeli aggression in 2006 as saying.
Meanwhile, the main goal was to establish the so-called “new Middle East” in the region, Sayyed Nasrallah elaborated.
On the other hand, Hezbollah Chief said: “there is another phase of July war that we shall talk about, which is the repercussions.”
Of these repercussions are the losses which were inflicted upon the Israeli military institution. These losses led to distrust between the army, political command and the Israeli people, something which has decisive effects on the Zionist entity, Sayyed Nasrallah said.
The resistance leader said that following July war the Israeli military doctrine set by (founder of the Zionist entity David) Ben Gurion has fallen.
“This doctrine which is based on swift victories, fighting in the enemy’s land, calm home front, this doctrine has fallen and both July and Gaza wars proved this.” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
His eminence also stressed that questions on the Zionist entity’s existence has been raised following July war, citing quotes by Israeli officials who were alarmed by the resistance capabilities which pose threat to Tel Aviv.
“(Benjamin) Netanyahu said that following July war things changed and it’s clear now that Israel is no longer an invincible state,” Sayyed Nasrallah stated, adding that the Israeli PM said that the Zionist entity’s allies and enemies are raising questions on its existence.
“Of the repercussions also is that the deterrence of the resistance was bolstered, in which there has been a mutual deterrence between the Zionist entity and the resistance, and this is reality that many Israeli officials talk about. Netanyahu’s remarks few days ago about the relative calm on Israel’s borders prove this reality,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
“The common factor in all these repercussions is that July war hit Israel’s spirit, arrogance, will, trust and existence.
“Israel Weaker Than Spider Web”
Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Israeli enemy has been for decades waging a psychological war in which it convinced the Arabs that ‘Israel’ is invincible; stressing that following July war this theory was over.
“In 2000, I said that ‘Israel’ is weaker than a spider web. This statement was kept in the Israelis’ memories, and July war came to confirm this reality.”
Sayyed Nasrallah stated that Bint Jbeil battle during July war was part of the resistance’s counter psychological war.
“The army of spider web was not able to get into the stadium of Beint Jbeil and confront my saying,” Sayyed Nasrallah addressed cheering crowds in the southern town which witnessed heroic battles between the resistance fighters and the Israeli soldier.
The resistance leader meanwhile, stressed that the victory in 2006 has established deterrence equation between the resistance and the Zionist entity, stressing that this equation was set by the resistance and only the resistance.
On the other hand, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Israeli enemy “nowadays fears the resistance’s occupation of Galilee.”
US Created ISIL
Hezbollah Chief urged the Lebanese and people in the region to watch the remarks of US officials nowadays, noting that these officials are blaming each others for creating the Takfiri group ISIL.
“Who can imagine that the US can’t know who is behind sending money and arms to the terrorists in Syria and Iraq?” Sayyed Nasrallah wondered, stressing that Washington created ISIL in a bid to crush the resistance.
“The US created ISIL after it failed to destroy the resistance in July war. Washington did so in a bid to hit the axis of resistance and especially Hezbollah.”
“After the “new Middle East” scheme failed and after the US could not change the equation in Afghanistan and Iraq, Washington relied on its plan of proxy war,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, stressing that by this plan the US wanted to get rid of both the Takfiri groups and the resistance.
Hezbollah S.G. meanwhile, called on the Takfiris to stop their fight which is in favor of the US and the Zionist entity.
Future of Region Is RESISTANCE
Sayyed Nasrallah also stressed that the resistance will go on with its battles in the region, especially that in Aleppo, noting that “we have no other choice.”
“The future in Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and the entire region is resistance. Defeat era has gone, it's the time of victories.”
On the Lebanese issue, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated Hezbollah’s commitment to elect MP General Michel Aoun for presidency. His eminence noted that Hezbollah’s only candidate for speaker post was and will still the current Speaker, Nabih Berri.
Sayyed Nasrallah also urged the government to bear its responsibility in dealing with the Lebanese issues, stressing that Lebanon should take decision to start drilling for gas and oil.
