Kurdish independence referendum is a step towards the salvation of Daesh

The vice-president of the Executive Council of Hezbollah said that the recently-held referendum on the separation of the Kurdistan Region from Iraq was an attempt to save Daesh from destruction.

Speaking at a ceremony commemorating one of the martyrs of Hezbollah at the Imam al-Ridha Complex in the Beirut suburb of Dahieh, Hujjat al-Islam Ali al-Da’moush, the vice-president of the Executive Council of Hezbollah said, “Lebanon has blessed by the blood of the martyrs, the achievements of the Islamic Resistance and the operations of the military and the security forces against the Takfiri terrorists and has become one of the safest and most stable countries in the region.”

The Lebanese cleric added that the forces of the Islamic Resistance, even when fighting in Syria, support Lebanon in order to prevent the terrorists from returning to Lebanon and spreading this phenomenon in the country.

Hujjat al-Islam al-Da’moush said that after their defeats in the region, especially in Lebanon, terrorist groups are trying to compensate for these failures and are therefore seeking to carry out terrorist operations against the citizens and added, “This issue necessitates increasing the security and preventing terrorist operations throughout Lebanon.”
