  • Leader lauds ‘resolve’ of Fatemiyoun in anti-terrorist campaign

Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, lauded the courage and resolve of the Fatemiyoun against Takfiri and other terrorist outfits, saying: “Today the United States has been defeated in the West Asia region, such as Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, thanks to the efforts and struggle of these steadfast youths.”

The Leader on Friday granted audience at the holy shrine of Imam Reza (AS) in Mashhad to families of martyrs of the Fatemiyoun Corps – an all-Afghan Unit that helped the Muslim people of Syria safeguard national sovereignty and the sanctity of the holy shrines of the Ahl al-Bayt (Blessed Household) of Prophet Mohammad (SAWA), against terrorists backed by the US, Saudi Arabia, and the illegal Zionist entity.

Ayatollah Khamenei praised the resoluteness of the Fatemiyoun on the battlefields of Jihad against terrorism, saying: “Our Afghan brothers are indeed steadfast and motivated.”

He condoled the bereaved families of the martyrs for the sacrifices offered by their loved ones in defence of Islam, taking note of the fact that the Afghan Muslim fighters have vowed to keep backing the Resistance Front in West Asia until the elimination of international Zionism.

Following the fall of Daesh in 2017, the Fatemiyoun Corps had congratulated Ayatollah Khamenei and Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Qods Force Major General Qassem Soleimani.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution prayed for the souls of the Afghan martyrs and beseeched Almighty Allah for the well-being and patience of the bereaved families, and to grant more courage and resoluteness to the Fatemiyoun Corps.
