In a speech in Iran’s western city of Kermanshah on Monday, Major General Hossein Salami paid tribute to martyrs for paving the way for the liberation of Muslims from modern slavery.
Thanks to the sacrifices made by the martyrs, the whole Islamic world has now turned into the field of struggle as the arrogant forces are getting away, he added.
“Today, Lebanon and Hezbollah are standing strongly against the Zionists, and whenever the enemy seeks to take any action, Hezbollah would nip them in the bud,” the general stated.
He also took a swipe at the US government for bringing about poverty and underdevelopment in the world and for plundering the assets of the nations.
In remarks in commemoration of theInternational Quds Day in May, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the downward movement of the Zionist regime has started and it will not stop.
"Since the first day, the Zionists turned the usurped Palestine into a terrorist base. Israel is not a country, rather it is a terrorist camp against the Palestinian nation and other Muslim nations," Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding, "Fighting against this despotic regime is fighting against oppression and terrorism. And this is a collective responsibility.”
