If it wasn’t clear already, a video posted on Saturday by the Iranian news agency Tsanim emphasized the direct connection between Hezbollah and its Lebanon loyalists, and the Ayatollah regime in Iran.

The video shows for the first time Hezbollah operatives swearing allegiance to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei during the Shi'ite celebrations at Ruhollah Khomeini ‘s tomb - the founder of the Islamic Republic.

According to the report, which was also published on Lebanese websites that oppose the activities of the Shiite organization in their country, Lebanese youth were seen swearing allegiance at a holy site for Shiites in Iran in the presence of Khamenei himself.

The Iranian Supreme Leader's website also published the video, stating, "In the spirit of divine victory achieved by the arms of the resistance and its proximity to Jarod Arsal, we publish for the first time a video of Lebanese youth at Khomeini's grave singing in a chorus in the presence of Khamenei."
