Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, who is also a former IRGC Commander, said that “Defending the Palestinian nation is in line with our strategic defense interests, and Lebanon and Syria are our strategic depth… If the Zionist regime (Israel) does anything against us, resistance groups, especially the Lebanese Hezbollah, as our strategic defensive depth, will give a response to this regime more easily.”
