Ayatollah Khamenei said, ‘Had the ill-wishers and plotters, who are agents for hostility of the US and Zionism, not been prevented there (in Syria), we should have prevented them in the Iranian provinces of Tehran, Fars, Khorasan and Isfahan. These (the martyrs) brought the enemy into inits knees.’
