Ahmadinejad tells Hezbollah supporters in South Lebanon: Israel can never beat you
Ahmadinejad welcomed by thousands of people in Bint Jbeil, location of heavy fighting during Second Lebanon War, where signs hang praising Iranian president as 'protector of resistance'.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in the south Lebanese town of Bint Jbeil on Thursday, close to the border with Israel, a state he has said should be wiped from the map.
Speaking to thousands of supporters waving Iranian flags and cheering, Ahmadinejad praised Hezbollah and its southern stronghold as "the foremost shield of Lebanon."
"You are the heroes that guard Lebanon's sovereignty," he told them. "You are have proven that there no force in the world can beat you. The resistance of the Lebanese nation, born from faith in God, can stand up to any Israeli force – planes, tanks and ships."
