Lebanese keep a wary eye on Iran elections

By June 17, 2024

Lebanon (MNN) — Tensions remain high along Lebanon’s southern border. Hezbollah launched as many as 250 rockets into northern Israel last week during two days of its heaviest bombardment so far.

Escalations like these lead many Lebanese to fear an imminent invasion by Israeli troops. However, Nuna with Triumphant Mercy Lebanon says her focus remains on Iran.

“Elections in Iran are now my top priority prayer because this will change everything in the whole Middle East, not only in Lebanon,” Nuna says.

Iran operates by proxy in several Middle Eastern countries. For example, “Hezbollah is the hand of Iran in Lebanon,” Nuna says.

By arming and training groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, Iran carries out its strategic objectives from afar. Proxy positions frequently put the Islamic Republic within striking distance of its arch-nemesis, Israel.

As the Lebanese border clashes demonstrate, “It’s Hezbollah who is attacking Israel. It’s not Israel attacking Hezbollah, it’s the opposite,” Nuna says.

Early presidential elections will be held in Iran on June 28 following the death of President Ebrahim Raisi in a May helicopter crash. Stand with Nuna and others in prayer for the Lord’s will to be done.

“We’re just asking that the person who becomes president in Iran will have the heart of Cyrus, that [they] will be in the hands of the Lord, and be in favor of peace with Israel.”
