All duty-bound to stand against Zionism: Supreme Leader’s adviser
A senior adviser to Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei says the attack by enemies of Islam on the Syrian government and nation is an assault on the resistance front against Zionism, urging all to stand against Zionists.
“All of us are duty-bound to defend resistance because it is the Muslims’ resistance against aggression and occupation of Islamic territories by Zionists and their supporters,” Ali Akbar Velayati said in a meeting with members of the General Secretariat of the Arab and Islamic Gathering Forum on Supporting Resistance in Tehran on Thursday.
While Muslim youths are defending Islamic lands and principles against the evil and perverse Zionist and US enemies, it is necessary that such a union of university professors, physicians and lawmakers be formed to support these defenders of Islam by enlightening the public opinion, he added.
Velayati, who advises Ayatollah Khamenei on international affairs, said all of the ongoing developments in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan are emanating from a single US and Crusades-like source.
He noted that resistance has different types and said, “The Iraqi government, nation and army, which are fighting against Daesh [terrorists] and have managed to carry out very important tasks, are examples of resistance against Zionists.”
Velayati said injured Daesh terrorists receive medical treatment in the occupied territories by Zionists physicians which shows the nature of Takfiri terrorists.
Daesh has recently lost a significant portion of the territories it used to control in Iraq and Syria as government forces in both countries have pushed forward to retake towns and villages from the group.
Syrian military and allies have been planning a major offensive into Raqqah to dismantle the most significant bastion of Daesh in the Arab country.
Syria says Israel and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups operating inside the Arab country.
The Syrian army has repeatedly seized huge quantities of Israeli-made weapons and advanced military equipment from the foreign-backed militants.
Late last year, British media released footage showing Israeli forces treating a wounded Takfiri terrorist in the occupied Golan Heights.
The Israeli regime has saved over 2,000 Takfiri militants at the cost of about USD 13 million over the past three years, added the report of British newspaper Daily Mail published in December 2015.
