‘I’m not content with this level [of aid],’ Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Sayyed Imam Ali Khamenei said, addressing a gathering in the quake-stricken city of Sarpol-e Zahab in western Iran.
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Sayyed Imam Ali Khamenei, who paid an unexpected visit to the disaster areas in the Province of Kermanshah early on Monday, also sympathized with all the people in cities and villages affected by the massive earthquake on November 13 and all those who lost their loved ones in the quake.
‘I share the grief of every single heart here. I wish we could visit you at a better time,’ Supreme Leader said.
Referring to the resistance by the brave people in Kermanshah Province and all the sacrifices they made during the Iraqi imposed war on Iran, the Supreme Leader said that ‘Great humans resist and stand against incidents.’
