Iran: Hezbollah's victory says "no" to US, Zionism
(MENAFN) Iranian speaker of Parliament congratulated Hezbollah on victory in Lebanese elections, saying the result of elections indicates Lebanese people's 'no' to the US and Zionism.
"Mr. Trump must know that the military and political pressure he is exercising has led the oppressed people of the region to voice their anger against his bullying and bluster," Ali Larijani said on Tuesday before the parliament session started.
Larijani expressed his hope that other nations in the region such as Iraq and Tunisia will raise their voice against Trump's actions in their upcoming elections.
Lebanon organized Sunday the parliamentary elections for the first time in nine years in accordance with a new proportional law.
