MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Iran and all members of the "axis of resistance" will support the Lebanese Shia movement Hezbollah by all means in the event of a conflict with Israel, Kamal Kharrazi, adviser to the Supreme Leader of Iran, said on Tuesday.
"All Lebanese people, Arab countries and members of the axis of resistance will support Lebanon against Israel... In that situation, we would have no choice, but to support Hezbollah by all means," Kharrazi said in an interview with the Financial Times, if Israel launches a full-scale offensive against Hezbollah, it could provoke a regional conflict.
