Alwaght- Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran lauded on Sunday sacrifices made by late General Qassem Soleimani, saying the anti-terror icon’s great work was to protect, empower, equip and revive the resistance front against the US and Israeli regime.
Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with General Soleimani’s family and members of the Headquarters for Commemoration of the Martyrdom of General Soleimani for his third martyrdom anniversary, Press TV reported.
The Leader said breathing a new spirit into the resistance front was a very outstanding work done by Martyr Soleimani.
“By strengthening the physical, spiritual, and mental aspects of the resistance, the general preserved, equipped, and revived this eternal, growing phenomenon against the Zionist regime, US influence [in the region], and other arrogant countries,” he said.
Pointing to the progress made by Palestinians in facing the Zionists and the achievements of the resistance in Iraq, Syria and Yemen, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “General Soleimani used the experience that he had attained during the period of the Holy Defense as well as the advice of his comrades to strengthen the resistance by relying on the internal capacities of these same countries.”
The Leader also praised as one of the important feats of General Soleimani the elimination of the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group and removing many of its roots, saying, “Martyr Soleimani performed well in that test as well.”
