Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on Wednesday congratulated Hezbollah on the eighth anniversary of its 2006 “victory” over Israel and urged Hamas to continue its “resistance” in Gaza “against the Zionist enemy.”

“Today the only power that can resist against the Zionist enemy and change the equations is resistance,” Larijani told the Arab-language Al-Ahd news website, according to Iranian state news agency Fars.

Fars reported that Larjijani “further underlined that the brilliant victory of the resistance movement indicated efficiency of people’s faith and patience against deadly modern weapons” and quoted French journalist and author Thierry Meyssan as saying in 2013 “that Hezbollah’s military capacities and capabilities against Israel have grown 400 times” since its 33-day war against Israel in 2006.
