In an interview with Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV:

“On April 11, 1996, the Israeli enemy sought to sow the seeds of division between Hezbollah and the Lebanese nation through committing massacres. Several world states conspired with the Zionists after the so-called Summit of Peacemakers in the Egyptian port city of Sharm El-Sheikh in order to end the resistance movement.”“Hezbollah totally ready to confront Israeli military aggression at any time: Top official,” PressTV, April 14, 2020, https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2020/04/14/623012/Hezbollah-totally-ready-to-confront-Israeli-military-aggression-at-any-time:-Top-official.

“Based on our religious duty and principles, we believe that there is an inevitable confrontation with Israel. Therefore, we surely will take part in such a war against the Zionist entity alongside the other movements, on top of which is the Lebanese Hezbollah. If there had been a war between Hezbollah and Syria at one front and Israel at another front, we would be at the front of the Mujahideen who fight Israel in order to regain the rights of the Arab and Islamic nations.”“Iraq’s pro-Iran movement to take part in any war against Israel,” Middle East Monitor, November 28, 2019, https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20191128-iraqs-pro-iran-movement-to-take-part-in-any-war-against-israel/.

“On this day, as we are witnessing all that is happening with the grace of Allah, we are looking forward to two important things, which are within sight: The first is the cleansing of Palestine of the filth of the Jews, and their uprooting from it, Allah willing. This is within sight. Four years, my brothers... By 2022, we will be rid of them.

“It is unacceptable that the Jews control some of the Arab states – their regimes, their armies, and their security agencies – while the peoples remain oppressed. Oh peoples of the Arab and Islamic nation, oh Palestinian people, you possess a concealed power that you can detonate in the faces of the Jews and the hypocrites. We expect another Arab Spring from you, with new characteristics – a second Arab Spring, which will focus on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Allah willing. We are your embers and your fuel, Allah willing.

“We say, facing this challenge with courage and bravery: We are coming for you, oh Netanyahu! We are coming for you, oh Lieberman! We are coming to chop your head off your necks! We are coming to chop off that entity and to destroy that army, which our Prophet informed us that we would defeat.”“Senior Hamas Official Fathi Hammad: We Will Cleanse Palestine of the Filth of the Jews, Heal the Nation of the Jewish Cancer; Netanyahu, Lieberman, We Are Coming to Chop Off Your Heads!,” MEMRI, July 12, 2018, https://www.memri.org/tv/hamas-political-bureau-member-fathi-hammad-at-gaza-rallies-cleanse-palestine-of-filth-cancer-of-the-jews.
