Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah delivers a speech at the memorial ceremony for the martyrdom of the late President Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi and his companions in Lebanon.

Iran Press/ West Asia: The Martyrdom of Sayyed Raisi and his companions resembles a great loss for the resistance front, said Nasrallah in his speech, adding, "We should introduce martyrs to our youths as models to follow."

Referring to Ebrahim Raisi and his companions, Nasrallah added, "These individuals are known for their sincerity and dedication, particularly the respected Martyr President of the Republic and the Martyred Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Sending deep condolences to Shiit's twelve Imam Mahdi (AS), Ayatollah Khamenei, Iranian officials, and the Iranian people, he added, "The martyrdom of loyal and honorable Iranian officials is a very saddening and painful and great loss for the resistance front."

Hezbollah leader in a televised speech noted, "We understand the profound impact of their absence, knowing they will never be among us again, and offer our heartfelt condolences to their families of all the martyrs."

Sayed Nasrallah said, "We stand in solidarity with the Iranian people, their officials, and every individual affected by this tragedy, our condolences extend not only to the families of the departed but to all who feel the weight of this loss."

"The recent tragic incident in Iran deeply saddened us, we mourn the loss of esteemed leaders and Mujahideen, whose guidance and compassion were invaluable during the critical phase in our ongoing struggle against Enemy and hostile forces."

Raisi worked tirelessly to serve the people of Iran and counter cruel sanctions on his country. As a president of the Islamic Republic, Raisi had no day off. He moved from one province to another and walked among people to solve their problems.

We are in the days of the Resistance and Liberation Holiday, and this painful incident occurred, so we entered an atmosphere of sadness and loss, Nasrallah highlighted.
