‘‘As I used to say in the first days of the July war, I used to always promise you with victory by relying on God and by knowing you, these people, these resistance men, and this enemy.. Defeat era has gone, and it's the time of victories,’’ Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said in the victory rally September 22, 2006.
We would not be exaggerating if we say that the July 2006 victory "Sincere Promise" was a historic victory in the Arab-Israeli conflict. The first victory was in 2000 when the Islamic resistance forced the Israeli occupation out of major part of the Lebanese territories in the South.
"July war overcame regional dimensions, it acquired strategic dimensions and changed many equations not only concerning Hezbollah in the south or the Arab-Israeli conflict, it rather went beyond the Israeli role since 1948," Chief of International Center for Information and Studies Rafiq Nasrallah told Al-Manar Website.
