The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) hails the Palestinian people for not wavering in their struggles to end Israel’s US- and UK-backed occupation of their homeland, saying the developments on the ground today show the strategy of resistance — pioneered by Iran — will speed up the downfall of the regime and liberation of al-Quds.
In a statement issued on the eve of the International Quds Day, the IRGC said the occasion — which is an initiative of late founder of Iran’s Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini — played a decisive role in efforts to keep the Muslim world and the entire world community focused on the Palestinian cause over the past decades.
Palestine, the IRGC, added still tops the list of issues of prime importance facing the region, the Muslim world and the entire international community “72 years into the official occupation of the Palestinian land by the Zionists on the back of a conspiracy by evil Britain and criminal America.”
Preparations are underway in Muslim states and elsewhere to mark the International Quds Day, which is commemorated every year on the last Friday of the holy fasting month of Ramadan in a show of support for the Palestinians against the Tel Aviv regime’s occupation and atrocities.
It underlines the Palestinians’ right to return to their homeland after decades of displacement by Israel, which began alleging existence in 1948 after overrunning their lands during a Western-backed war.
