Hussein Salami says, “How could we be present in East of the Mediterranean and support Palestinians and Lebanese? How could we form a unified front from Iran to Syria, to Lebanon, to Palestine?”

He continues, “The hub of this connection was Syria. If Syria got separated from this chain, our connection to Palestine, Lebanon and Syria would be broken.”

Salami adds, “I mean the components and pillars of this resistance front would have fallen apart, while what we are doing is based on [creating] preventive measures plan.”

He also says, “We are acting like edges of a sword which are connected by a common belief as well as common enemies. In fact, we are acting together to disrupt the impact and political dominance of Islam’s enemies.”
