Iran’s top judge blasts Hezbollah terror listing

Iran’s Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani slammed the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council’s move to put Hezbollah on its so-called terror list as a plot masterminded by the Zionist regime of Israel and certain Western and Arab governments.

The PGCC’s designation of Hezbollah as a terrorist group is indicative of the failure of the enemies’ conspiracies, including their giving rise to Takfiri terrorist groups like Daesh (ISIL), Ayatollah Amoli Larijani said at a meeting of senior Judiciary officials on Monday.

After facing total disgrace for supporting the Takfiri terrorists and receiving global condemnation, certain Arab countries rushed to classify Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, he added.

The top judge further reaffirmed Iran’s unwavering support for the Lebanese Resistance Movement.

On Wednesday, the Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf declared Hezbollah movement, which has been fighting terrorist groups in Syria and the Israeli occupation, a “terrorist group.”

The six-nation council officially added Hezbollah and all groups affiliated to its so-called list of terrorist organizations.
