(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The fact even admitted by Iran's enemies that the country's power has increased ten times more than before is indicative of Tehran's policy and rationalism as well as its support for the oppressed people of the region, said IRGC senior commander Major-General Qasem Soleimani.
Speaking in a local gathering, Soleimani, the Quds Force commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), said the clear example of the increase of Iran’s power in the region is that images of Father of the Islamic Revolution the late Imam Khomeini and Iran’s current Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei are presented in all regional countries.
He described the cause of Palestine as a pivotal issue for the region saying that certain Arab states were against establishment of the International Quds Day.
The International Quds Day was initiated by the late Imam Khomeini after the Islamic Revolution as an opportunity for world Muslims and non-Muslims to express their support for the cause of Palestine and their hatred towards atrocities of the Zionist Regime against the defenseless people of Palestine.
The innocent people of Palestinian are surrounded by a number of their “friends and also certain Islamic countries.”
Designating the International Quds Day was one of the masterworks made by Imam Khomeini,” Soleimani said noting that the event has brought more and more dignity for the Islamic Iran.
Noting that the terrorist group of ISIS was created by Takfiri terrorists to establish a so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Levant aiming at ruining the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The commander underscored that those who sponsored the Takfiri terrorists were trying to fan the flames of insecurity but they have finally failed to bring the Iranian nation to its knees through numerous acts of aggression.
Thanks to Iran’s global defense from the innocent Iraqi and Syrian people, Soleimani noted the Islamic Republic of Iran is considered as the most beloved country across the globe.
