Comdr Soleimani: Growth in Iran’s authority resulted from support for oppressed people

IRNA – The Quds Forces Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major-General Qasem Soleimani has said the fact that enemies admitted Iran’s authority has been increased tens times more than before was resulted from Tehran’s policy and rationalism as well as its support for the oppressed people of the region.

Speaking in a local gathering, Soleimani 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.

The commander 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 Daesh 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.
