in the name of God
Holy Defense Week is decorated with the names and memories of the great martyrs. Their sincere sacrifice and that of other martyrs gave victory to the Iranian nation, and their pure blood recorded the legitimacy of the Islamic Republic on the face of history.
This is the great lesson of those models of self-sacrifice; Wherever there is sincere effort, there is victory and pride.
And the Iranian nation will never forget this honorable monument, God willing.
Peace be upon the all the martyrs and their leader, Imam Ruhollah.
