The chief of Lebanon’s Iran-allied Hezbollah movement, Hassan Nasrallah, has warned that United States troops in the Middle East would return home in coffins.
YaahooJournalist reports that Nasrallah gave this warning in reaction to the assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani
According to Nasrallah, the assassination of Soleimani is not only the responsibility of Iran but also that of the entire axis of resistance.
“When the coffins of American soldiers and officers begin to be transported to the United States, President Donald Trump and his administration will realize that they have really lost the region and will lose the elections,” Nasrallah said while speaking in Beirut, Lebanon yesterday.
Nasrallah maintained that attacks on US military forces in the Middle East will be “fair punishment” for the crime, listing US bases, naval ships and military personnel.
His words: “The targeted killing of General Soleimani and Muhandis is the beginning of a new era not for Iraq or Iran, but for the whole region.
“We are witness to a heinous crime whose perpetrators are well-known. US President Donald Trump said he had ordered the (drone) strike (on the airport in Baghdad, Iraq).
“More than three years into his presidency, Trump has failed to accomplish the goals he had defined at the beginning of his tenure. Previous US attempts to assassinate General Soleimani had ended in failure. All of Trump’s forms of pressure to subdue Iran have also failed to realize that goal,” he added.
