Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian says Tehran’s proxy terror groups in the region are “fully ready” to respond to any move by Israel.

The minister speaks in Beirut at the end of a tour that took him to Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, where Iran enjoys wide influence and where tens of thousands of Iran-backed fighters are deployed.

Amirabdollahian tells reporters in Beirut Saturday that he met Hezbollah’s leadership, adding that “the resistance [Hezbollah] is in excellent condition and in full readiness to respond to criminal acts by the Zionist entity.”

He adds that “the resistance will decide if the war will expand or new fronts are to be open.”

During his visit to Beirut, Amirabdollahian met Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah and they discussed the war.

“We will do all we can to stop the Zionist crimes in Gaza,” Amirabdollahian says.
