In an interview with Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV channel, Iranian political analyst Mohammad Sadeq Al-Hosseini said: "Iran sells weapons to 17 countries, including small European countries, as well as Arab countries." The interview was broadcast on November 3, 2014.

Following are excerpts:

Mohammad Sadeq Al-Hosseini: Iran sells weapons to 17 countries, including small European countries, as well as Arab countries. Prior to recent events, Yemen had been buying Iranian weapons. This was in the days of President Ali Abdallah Saleh. They were buying Iranian weapons, and the U.S. did not object to that. [Iran] would sell these weapons. They were not given away. From the commercial perspective, selling Iranian arms is not prohibited. Iran sells weapons to 17 countries.


The Americans draw the line at Iranian arms reaching the state of Lebanon, because they do not want it to become an ideological state, whose enemy is Israel, whose enemy is the takfirists. They want Lebanon to be a state with no [ideological] hue, taste, or scent, so it remains under American hegemony.


Tel Aviv is the Saigon of this day and age. The Americans and the Israeli sense a real danger in Hizbullah's decision to liberate the Galilee. One night, or one bright and fine morning – when circumstance are in our favor – Hizbullah will invade the Galilee. What will the U.S. and Israel do? Saigon, which means Tel Aviv, will fall that very moment.
