Saying Hassan Nasrallah about Commander Soleimani and his role in the 33-day war and the atmosphere in the operating room, said the principle of Haj Qassim’s arrival in Lebanon at the outset of the war was very important. He didn’t have to do that. He could stay in Tehran and follow the war from Tehran or he could come to Damascus and follow the war from Damascus near us. Damascus was not immune from any Israeli aggression in those days.
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah: First of all, the principle of Haj Qasim coming to Lebanon at the beginning of the war was very important. He didn’t have to do that. He could stay in Tehran and follow the war from Tehran, or he could come to Damascus and follow the war from Damascus near us. Damascus was not immune from any Israeli aggression in those days. But Haj Qassim came and insisted on coming to us.
We had a meeting the first day he arrived. Naturally, he did not arrive on the first day of the war. The war began and he came to Damascus and one of the early days of the war arrived here. After the meeting, he stayed for a few more days and returned to Tehran, in spite of dangerous circumstances, to convey information to the Prophet and officials, and then returned to us again. Again, he could have stayed in Tehran or Damascus again, but again insisted on coming here. He came again and this time with a verbal message from Prophet Hajj that Qasim had written with his own line and stayed with us until the end of the war and the last day. When the ceasefire was announced, Haj Qassim spoke to me and said that I was now sure that the war was over and that he had returned to Tehran. He said I would go back to Tehran to pursue the rest of the issues you need.
So all this time was with us and within us. This issue had not been disclosed until recently and was one of the things that remained secret and not the media. It was revealed just months before Haji’s testimony.
At the moment when he was with us, this presence: First, he gave us a spirit and supported us spiritually and spiritually because we were under immense pressure. The war was terrifying. Many people had fled their homes. Many homes, shops, markets, and schools were destroyed in the early days. All so-called international conditions were against the resistance. At that time, in addition to the US and Europe, Russia and China also participated in the first day’s statement and took a negative stand on resistance. Most of the official Arabic positions were also extremely negative. Even within Lebanon there was a political divide. As a result, the resistance was under severe psychological pressure. The presence of Hajj among the brothers was primarily spiritual and a spiritual and spiritual supporter.
