Top Commander: Iran inspiring resistance against Israel

FNA- Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri warned of Israel and its supporters’ enmity towards his country, saying that the friends and admirers of the Islamic Revolution are fighting against the Zionists on the coasts of the Mediterranean.

“The Islamic Revolution has always faced hostilities of the arrogant powers and the child-killer Zionist regime,” General Baqeri said, addressing a ceremony in the Southeastern city of Zahedan on Monday.

Noting that the Iranian forces are now fighting against the enemies outside the borders without any intention to occupy other countries’ territories, he said, “The friends of the Islamic Revolution, those who show sympathy towards it and those who have whole-heartedly listened to Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution’s remarks are fighting against the world arrogance and the Zionists on the Mediterranean coasts.”

In relevant remarks earlier this month, General Baqeri underlined that the plots hatched by the US and its regional allies, Israel in particular, will not bear any result.

“Global arrogance and Zionist regime’s policies and strategies are doomed to failure,” General Baqeri said.

He reiterated that the complete defeats of Israel’s and Saudi Arabia’s barbarism are inevitable.

Also last Tuesday, Iran’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Eshaq Ale’habib underlined that all the crises in the Middle East emanate from Israel and its allies.

“Numerous assaults on the Palestinian land and repeated violations of the UN resolutions by the Zionist regime make the regime as main source of all crises in the Middle East,” Ale’habib said, addressing a meeting of the UN Security Council.

Al-Habib said since 1948, the Zionist regime has invaded its neighbors 14 times and suppressed the Palestinians violently with the support of the US; the recent prohibition on Palestinians entry to al-Aqsa Mosque is an instance of illegal measures taken by the Zionists.

Referring to violation of many UN resolutions by the Zionists, Ale’habib said there is a lot of evidence concerning Zionists’ aggressive policies, apartheid, and war crimes in the reports of the United Nations.

He said that settlement construction for the Zionists in the Occupied Territories is violation of Geneva’s Fourth Convention, adding the routine of the Zionist regime shows that it has never been looking for peace and has participated in the negotiations to buy time to follow its expansionism and aggression.
