Imam Khamenei made the remarks while meeting with the family of Gen. Qasem Soleimani on January 1, 2022 on the second anniversary of his martyrdom in a terrorist attack by the US government.
Due to the blessing of our dear General Soleimani’s blood, the Resistance movement is now more thriving and hopeful than two years ago, noted the Leader.
Tens of millions of Iranians attending General Soleimani’s funeral shows he was and is the most popular figure in the nation, he said, adding, also, the increasing influence of his name in the world of Islam proves dear Soleimani has been one of the most popular figures in the world of Islam too.
Haj Qasem is a manifestation of endeavor and untiring, astonishing work. The heroic General of Iran had both courage and rationality in all affairs. While he knew precisely the enemies and their tools, he would enter the battlefield and carry out amazing tasks without a bit of fear, noted the commander-in-chief of Iranian armed forces.
Enemies thought by martyring Soleimani, Abu Mahdi and their comrades everything is over. But today US has fled Afghanistan. Resistance is progressing in Yemen. The enemies are stuck in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. The Resistance movement is more thriving and hopeful than 2 years ago, highlighted the Leader.
Martyr Soleimani, he continued, is an eternal reality that will live on forever. His assassins - including Trump and the like - will go down in history’s garbage bin, but of course after receiving retribution in this world for the crime they committed.
