TEHRAN (Iran News) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Quds Force Brigadier General Esmaeil Qaani said the front of resistance continues to take outstanding actions against the enemies constantly.
General Qaani delivered a speech at the funeral of his deputy, Brigadier General Mohammad Hejazi, in Iran’s central city of Isfahan on Tuesday.
General Hejazi passed away on Sunday after years of suffering from the effects of chemical weapons used during the Iraqi war of the 1980s on Iran.
He was a veteran of the Iraqi war under former dictator Saddam Hussein on Iran, which lasted eight years. After the war, he served as the commander of Iran’s Basij volunteer force for ten years and as the deputy commander of the IRGC for a year.
In his address, General Qaani said various fronts of the resistance forces, from Iran to Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Yemen keep to the path of late Iranian commander Lt. General Qassem Soleimani and his followers.
Every day, the resistance forces take a fundamental action against the enemies of the Revolution and Islam, including the U.S. and the bloodthirsty Zionist regime, Qaani added.
He also emphasized that the resistance front will proceed with such a dignified course vigorously.
Qaani named Hejazi as one of the leaders fighting against the Pahlavi regime before the Islamic Revolution and one of the pioneers protecting the Islamic Revolution in the Iran-Iraq war.
He added that Cmdr. Hejazi’s bravery and measure have always been approved by Muslim world leaders including the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement Seyed Hassan Nasrallah and the current head of Hamas’s political bureau Ismail Haniyeh and the named leaders have condoled Leader Ayatollah Khamenei over his demise.
Emphasizing that the resistance fronts in all Islamic countries, including Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, etc., are taking basic action against the enemies every day, Qaani said commanders are being trained in the front to follow Martyrs Solemani and Hejazi.
In remarks in May 2020, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said Iran will “support and assist any nation or any group who opposes and fights the Zionist regime” of Israel.
