Roknabadi: Hezbollah to Create ‘Headaches’ for the U.S. Government
Iran’s Ambassador to Beirut Ghazanfar Roknabadi announced on Tuesday that Islamic Republic of Iran will continue supporting the Syrian government, despite the alleged chemical attacks in Syria.
“Iran and Islamic militant groups are confident that President Bashar al-Assad doesn’t have any role in the recent chemical attacks of Syria. As a matter of fact, these attacks have been carried out by insurgents under the leadership of Israel,” Ghazanfar Roknabadi said in an interview with state TV.
“Lebanon’s Hezbollah is ready to send more troops to Syria if the U.S. government decides to carry out military actions against the Syrian government. The officials of the Western governments should refrain from taking military action against Syria, because Hezbollah will create numerous headaches for them inside and outside Syria,” Roknabadi continued.
Hezbollah is reportedly being supported by the Iranian government and Islamic Revolutions Guardians Corpse (IRGC). Iran has been accused of smuggling missiles, drones and high-tech weapons to Lebanon and Palestine over the past few years.
“Islamic militants, especially the members of Hezbollah, can confront with the U.S. army. Hezbollah is currently taking advantage of advanced missiles and weapons, which can be used to target American troopers in Syria,” Ghazanfar Roknabadi added.
Iran’s envoy to Lebanon says the U.S. government will encounter with more issues in future if the country attacks on Syria. “The Western governments should avoid making the same mistake that they did in recent years. Syria has unique conditions, with compared to Iraq and Afghanistan,”
“Palestinian and Lebanese Mujahids will not allow the U.S. and UK governments to achieve their goals in the Middle East region, especially in Syria.” Ghazanfar Roknabadi concluded.
