Victory of Lebanon Resistance Front Against US, Israel, Saudi Welcome

Iranian officials have welcomed the result of Lebanon's elections as a victory for democracy and a decisive “no” to Israel and the United States, who have been trying to undermine the resistance front opposed to their ploys and presence in the volatile region.  
"Despite character assassinations and the 'dirty money' spent by the US, the Zionists, the brave Lebanese nation went to the polls and expressed themselves clearly with a 'no' to America and Zionism," Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani told an open session of parliament on Tuesday, IRNA reported. 
Hezbollah and its political allies made significant gains in the  parliamentary election on Sunday, boosting an Iranian-backed movement fiercely opposed to Israeli lawlessness and underlining Tehran's growing regional role and influence.  
It was the first parliamentary vote in the country since 2009, and Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah called the result a "very big political, parliamentary and moral victory for the choice of resistance," Reuters reported.  
Larijani said the Americans should be aware that "political" and "military" pressure on regional nations almost always backfire.
