Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah made the remarks in a televised speech broadcast live from the Lebanese capital city of Beirut on Saturday evening as he addressed participants of a ceremony in commemoration of late Shia Muslim cleric Sayyed Mohammad Ali al-Amin, who passed away in July.
“The United States exploits any incident in Iran in order to provoke the nation against the Islamic establishment, the latest of which is the protests that have broken out following Ms. Amini’s tragic death.
“US-backed vandals took advantage of the unclear circumstances surrounding her death to challenge the Islamic Republic after their so-called campaign of maximum pressure dismally failed,” he said.
Protests over the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian woman who fainted at a police station last week and was later pronounced dead at a hospital, erupted first in her native province of Kurdistan and later spread to other parts of the country, including Tehran.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Hezbollah chief noted that the United States' cruel sanctions against Iranians were meant to pit the people against the Islamic establishment, emphasizing that Iran is now stronger than ever.
“Successive US administrations have realized that Iran is a strong, dignified and capable country; and that explains why it (the US) does not dare wage a war on the country and banks on stoking internal disputes instead,” Nasrallah said.
“Iran enjoys great capabilities, so the US uses all tools to incite provocations against the Islamic Republic. Western and Persian Gulf media outlets are working to incite people against the Islamic establishment,” he noted.
“US administrations have established troll armies across social media platforms to undermine Iran, but all to no avail.
“They cannot do anything to harm the Islamic Republic of Iran because of the nation’s readiness to make sacrifices,” the Hezbollah leader said.
He highlighted that millions of Iranians took to the streets across the country last week to condemn desecration of Islamic sanctities and acts of vandalism by rioters.
